▪Mitosis is nuclear division that produces two genetically identical daughter nuclei, each containing the same number of chromosomes as the parent nucleus.

▪Mitosis a controlled process


▪Interphase has G1, S and G2


  • the chromosomes condense shorter.
  • the centrioles move to opposite ends of the cell which form a network of protein fibres it called spindle.
  • the nuclear envelope breaks down.


  • the chromosomes line up along the middle of the cell attached to the spindle by their centromere.


  • centromere divide which causes the separation of the sister chromatids.
  • the spindles contract moving the chromatids to opposite poles of the spindle.


  • once the chromatids move to opposite poles of the spindle – these uncoil.
  • A nuclear envelope forms around the chromosomes and these become two daughter cells which are genetically identical to the original cell.
