what are the mitosis steps
Mitosis is a type of cell division in which one cell (the mother) divides to produce two new cells (the daughters) that are genetically identical to itself. In the context of the cell cycle, mitosis is the part of the division process in which the DNA of the cell's nucleus is split into two equal sets of chromosomes.
There are basically four steps or phases by which cell mitosis occur.
In early prophase, the cell starts to break down some structures and build others up, setting the stage for division of the chromosomes.
In metaphase, the spindle has captured all the chromosomes and lined them up at the middle of the cell, ready to divide.
In Anaphase, the sister chromatids separate from each other and are pulled towards opposite ends of the cell.
In telophase, the cell is nearly done dividing, and it starts to re-establish its normal structures as cytokinesis (division of the cell contents) takes place.
