Anaphase cell division. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a HeLa cancer cell during the anaphase stage of cell division (mitosis). Chromosomes (red) are being pulled to either pole of the cell by the spindle microtubules (yellow). The chromosomes will congregate at centre left and right to form two separate daughter nuclei. During mitosis a cell produces two genetically identical daughter cells. HeLa cells are human cancer cells cultured in the laboratory and used in cancer research. Magnification unknown.
