  1. Prophase
    • • Centrosomes
    • move to the poles

    • • Spindle
    • forms

    • • Chromosome
    • condensation – chromatids become evident (remember that each chromatid is
    • actually a chromosome even though we refer to the pair of chromatids as a
    • "mitotic chromosome")

    • • Kinetochores
    • form
  2. Prometaphase
    • • Nuclear
    • envelope breakdown

    • • Polar
    • microtubules and kinetochore microtubules form

    • • Chromosomes
    • arrive on metaphase plate
  3. Metaphase
    • • Chromosomes
    • are lined up on the metaphase plate

    • • Sister
    • chromatids bound to kinetochore microtubule on opposite spindles
  4. Anaphase
    • • Centromeres
    • separate

    • • Kinetochore
    • microtubules shorten

  5. Telophase

  6. G2
    • • replication
    • of the centrosome (and centrioles in some cases).
  7. Ingredient for metaphase mitiotic spindles
    • 1) Keep the chromatids paired until it is time to segregate.
    • 2) Have unstable kinetochore microtubules that can sample the cytoplasm and only stabilize upon being captured by a kinetochore.
    • 3) Give each chromatid a kinetochore with a geometry such that two kinetochore microtubules from the same spindle can't capture both chromatids of a chromosome.
    • 4) Have a checkpoint at metaphase that senses when all the chromatids have been captured and only then allow the chromatids to separate.
  8. How does cytokinesis happen in animals
    actin and myosin, and it constricts and divides the cell
  9. How does cytokenesis happen in plants
    In plants – vesicles fuse to make cell membrane and cell plate, which eventually becomes the new cell wall.
  10. Prophase I

    • • Spindle fiber forms
  12. Metaphase I
    • • Microtubules attach to kinetochores (one per homolog not per chromatid)
    • • Chromosomes line up at metaphase plate held together by chiasmata.
  13. Anaphase I
    • Separation of homologous chromosomes into separate cells.Note: each cell now has two copies (two chromatids) of each homologous chromosome - these chromatids are not identical because of crossing over.
  14. Is telphase optional in meiosis?
