During mitosis, sister chromatids are separated. • In mitosis, we get identical cells, but in meiosis, it’s halved. • We have asters are made up of microtubules. There are two types: kinetochore, non-kinetochore. • The metaphase plate is an imaginary plate in which the chromosomes line up. • Each of the asters represent a pole and there are overlapping microtubules pushing the sister chromatins away from each other. • The chromosomes are attached to protein which will walk them down the microtubules towards one of the poles. • The kinetochores interact with the chromosomes and on the other side of the chromatins, it’s breaking apart and tubulin subunits are released....
