Mitotic cell division. Image 4 of 4. Fluorescent light micrograph of a cell during the telophase stage of mitosis (cell division). DNA genetic material is blue and the microtubules of the cell's cytoskeleton are green. By this stage of mitosis the chromosomes (which contain the DNA) have divided and moved to opposite ends of the mitotic spindle (green lines across centre). In telophase the spindle breaks down, and the cell starts to split into two. Mitosis is the process by which a cell divides into two identical daughter cells. Magnification: x6500 at 6x9cm size. For a sequence showing the process of mitosis, see images P672/073-076.
