sister chromatids at each end of the cell, pulled apart by spindle fibers. However, the spindle fibers – both kinetochore fibers , which attach to the chromosome at the centromeres was not visible, along with the polar fibers , which extend across the cell. This is due to the fact that the power of the microscope we used was not too powerful. Telophase, though rare in this slide, was the most difficult to determine. Telophase, however, has one differentiating characteristic that makes it different than all other phases – cytokenesis . Cytokenesis is when the cytoplasm pinches, resulting in a cleavage furrow in animal cells, or a cell plate is formed in the middle of a dividing cell in a plant cell. However, we spotted this when we were able to make out the barely visible cell plate of a cell. Also, whenever we saw an oblong cell that was rather large in comparison to all the others, we looked closely and saw that in the middle, there was a faint line of a

    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.
