Caption: Mitosis. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of two daughter cells emerging from the telophase stage of cell division. The yellow cells appear rounded with surface protrusions. In mitosis a single cell produces two genetically identical daughter cells. During the last stage of mitosis (telophase), the chromosomes have already been duplicated and distributed to the daughter cells. However, the two daughter cells are still connected by a narrow cytoplasmic bridge of threads. This final division of the cytoplasm is termed cytokinesis. Long filaments that protrude from each cell surface provide mechanical support and supply nutrient substances.
