What are the different stages of mitosis?

Mitosis is a type of cell division that results in genetically identical daughter cells and occurrs in many parts of the body helping with repair and replacement of cells. It is also used in asexual reproduction.

These are the stages of mitosis:

Interphase - this is technically all cell stages that aren't a part of mitosis.

Prophase - is the first stage. Here the individual chromosomes (which have already replicated their DNA) condense and become distinguishable from one another.

Metaphase - is when the chromosomes line up at the equator(middle) of the cell and the spindle fibres form and attach to the centromeres of the chromosomes.

Anaphase - here the sister chromatids are pulled apart as the spindle fibres shorten back to the poles of the cell.

Telophase - this stage involves the reformation of a nuclear envelope around each set of chromatids(now chromosomes). The chromosomes unravel and are no longer individually visible. A cleavage furrow forms and results in cytokinesis, separating the two daughter cells.
