Day 7: Jumpin' Genes!

Duplicate DNA Molecules Separate

-----------------------------------------------

Splitting Chromosomes From here, the mitotic spindle fibers pull the chromosomes apart. The two molecules of DNA making up the chromosome separate into two new daughter chromosomes. The daughter chromosomes travel toward opposite centrioles along their attached spindle fibers. In the end the centrioles move apart pulling their microtubules and attached daughter chromosomes with them. This stage of mitosis is referred to as anaphase.
