Mitosis (image 5 of 6). Digital three-dimensional immunofluorescent light micrograph of a section through a mammalian cell during the telophase stage of mitotic cell division. The sister chromatids (blue) that made up each chromosome have been pulled to opposite ends of the cell. A nuclear membrane (not seen) is forming around each group of chromatids. The actin microfilaments (red) and tubulin microtubules (green) of the cytoskeleton maintain the cell's structure. Mitosis produces two identical daughter cells. This is a rat kangaroo kidney epithelial cell. Magnification: x500 at 6x7cm size. For a sequence of mitosis see images P673/052-057.
