Caption: Interphase/prophase of cell mitosis. Image 1 of 6. Light micrograph of bluebell (Endymion sp.) cells undergoing cell division (mitosis). Four cellular nuclei (stained orange) are seen in the early stages of mitosis. The two nuclei at lower image are seen in interphase. This is the resting stage of the cell between divisions, the nucleus being seen as large and condensed. At upper image two cells are seen in prophase. At this stage the orange thread-like chromosomes are visible and progressively become shorter and fatter until they divide and separate into two "daughter" nuclei later in mitosis. Part of mitosis sequence, images B215/045 to B215/050.
