This image is part of the sequence Flowers: cell division (mitosis) in a hyacinth root

Caption: Mitosis. Image 6 of 8. Light micrograph of a hyacinth root cell during telophase, the last stage of mitosis (nuclear division) before cytokinesis (cellular division). Mitosis is the formation of two daughter nuclei from one parent nucleus. At telophase sister chromatids, which are made of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA, red), have been moved to separate poles by spindles (not seen). Two identical chromatids make up one chromosome, so each cell retains a copy of the parent cell's genetic information. Spindles are made up of microtubules, part of the cell's cytoskeleton. Magnification: x1150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. For images showing the cell cycle see P672/146-P672/153.
