Caption: Plant mitosis. False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a mitotic spindle within a cell in a leaf of the garden pea, Pisum sativum. The chromosomes (yellow) are oriented towards the poles of the mitotic spindle, which in this cross- section lies in the centre of the cell. Known as anaphase, this is the stage in the division of a cell when the chromosomes separate into two identical halves and begin moving towards the opposite poles of the spindle. These poles represent the future sites of the nuclei of the developing daughter cells. The blue oval structures in the cell are fluid-filled vacuoles. Magnification: x4800 at 6x4.5cm size.
