Caption: Dividing cells. Fluorescent light micrograph of cells during the metaphase stage of mitosis (cell division). DNA genetic material is pink and the microtubules of each cell's cytoskeleton are red, forming a microtubule spindle. The poles of the spindle are light green. During metaphase, the chromosomes (which contain the DNA) form a line (the metaphase plate) on the microtubule spindle. The microtubules drag the chromosomes apart towards the poles to form two identical sets for the two genetically identical daughter cells that are the end product of mitosis. The spindle poles were highlighted by staining for the protein TPX2. Prepared by in vitro reconstitution.
