Cell division. Image 1 of 2. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through an animal cell dividing by the process of mitosis. This is the anaphase stage of mitosis, the stage where the genetic material of the cell (contained in the chromatids, dark red) divides and begins to move to opposite ends of the cell. In the final (telophase) stage of mitosis, the cell splits into two daughter cells. Mitosis is the asexual replication of a cell to produce a genetically- identical daughter cell. This is a lymphocyte (white blood cell) from mammalian bone marrow. Magnification: x5000 at 6x7cm size. For the telophase stage of mitosis, see image P673/063.
