Caption: Cell division. Immunofluorescent light micrograph of a human epithelial cell (centre) during the metaphase stage of mitosis. Mitosis is the cycle of replication and division by which new body cells are formed. Here, the chromosomes (blue) of the parent cell have duplicated and the pairs have lined up along middle of the cell. They will then be pulled apart by microtubules (spindles, green) and move to opposite poles of the cell, in a process called cytokinesis. When the cell has split, two identical daughter cells are formed.
