Interphase

longest phase of the cell cycle

DNA replication occurs

Chromosomes are decondensed

Nucleolus and nuclear membrane present

Includes G1, S and G2 phases

2 identical sister chromatids form, held together in the middle by a centromere

Prophase

Chromosomes condense

Nucleolus disappears

Centrioles migrate to poles

Metaphase

Chromosomes line up single file at equator

Nuclear membrane disappears

Spindle fibres attach to centromeres

Anaphase

Centromeres split

Spindle fibres contract

Sister chromatids pulled to opposite poles

Telophase

Membrane invaginates

In plants a new cell wall forms from the middle outwards

Cytokinesis occurs

Chromatids decondense

Nucleoli and nuclear membranes appear

Spindle disappears

Centrioles replicate

Forms 2 identical diploid daughter cells - clones of parent
