Mitosis Mitosis is the process during cell division in which the nucleus of a cell is divided into two nuclei. Each nucleus ends up with the same number and kinds of chromosomes as the original cell. The cell cycle is divided into the interphase and the splitting stages. The interphase consists of growth phase 1, DNA synthesis (replication) phase, and growth 2 phase. After the interphase, comes the two splitting stage: mitosis, and cytokinesis. In growth 1, the cell grows to a certain amount when it knows that it’s too big and stops growing. DNA synthesis is DNA replication. Growth phase 2 is about getting ready (by making the centrioles, etc.) for the splitting stages. Mitosis consists of 4 stages: prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase (PMAT). Prophase: Chromosomes coil up and become visible. The nuclear envelope dissolves (disappears) and a spindle forms. Metaphase: The chromosomes move to the center of the cell and line up along the equator. Spindle fibers link the chromatids of each
