Langston Cabaniss Professor Errami BIOL 1406 Mitosis/Meiosis Paper Mitosis is the process of cell division of a eukaryotic cell. The eukaryotic cell separates the chromosomes of the cell nucleus into two identical nuclei. Mitosis is a very fast and complex process. The four main stages of this process in order are called Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase. In prophase, chromatin in the nucleus begins to condense the nucleolus disappears and centrioles begin moving to opposite ends of the cell. In Metaphase, spindle fibers align the chromosome along the middle of the cell nucleus, this line is referred to as the metaphase plate. Anaphase is where the paired chromosomes separate at the kinetochores and move to opposite sides. Telophase is the last stage of mitosis, in which chromatids arrive at opposite poles of the cell, new membranes for around nuclei, and chromosomes and spindle fibers disperse and the equal division of the single nucleus into two nuclei is complete.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
