    • Spindle fibers attach to the sister chromatids

  38. Metaphase
    • Sister chromatids are pulled along the spindle apparatus towards the center of the cell
    • Line up in the middle of the cell

  39. Anaphase
    • The microtubules of the spindle apparatus begin to shorten
    • The sister chromatids separate
    • The chromosomes move towards the poles of the cell
