Caption: Anaphase in a root cell. Light micrograph of the anaphase stage of mitosis (cell division) in a cell of the hyacinth root, Hyacinthus sp. The nuclei of cells are yellow; cell contents are blue. At centre, a cell is in anaphase, in which thread-like chromatids are seen at either pole of the cell. These chromatids are daughter elements of chromosomes which have separated. Microtubules (not seen) in the cell cytoplasm have caused their movement. Chromatids will form the separate nuclei of the new daughter cells. This image is one of a series of five illustrating the process of mitosis in the hyacinth root (see: B215/039, B215/040, B215/041, B215/043). Magnification: unknown.
