Mitosis. Immunofluorescent light micrograph of culture cells, two of which are undergoing mitotic cell division. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) genetic material is stained blue. In the two dividing cells the DNA is condensing to form chromosomes (seen as brighter blue at upper right & centre left). The other cells are in the stage between cell division, known as interphase. In mitosis, two genetically identical daughter cells are formed. Immunofluorescence is a staining technique which uses antibodies to attach fluorescent dyes to specific cell tissues. Magnification: x252 at 35mm size.
