Part 1: The Mitosis Models -- Key

The following shows the correct sequences for the stages of mitosis (you do not need to distinguish between early and late within a stage). The structures that you need to know are indicated by letter codes; check your answers against the key.

C. Cytoplasm   N. Nucleolus
Ch. Chromosome   Z1, Z2. Centrosome (pair of centrioles)
E. Cleavage Furrow   ZF, ZS. Spindle Fibers (mitotic spindle)
K. Nucleus  

 

 

 

1. Interphase
Note that this is just prior to mitosis, as the centrosome has already been duplicated.
2. Prophase (early)

3. Prophase (late) 4. Metaphase

5. Anaphase (early) 6. Anaphase (late)
