Module 9: Figure mitotic events

Summary of the morphological changes that occur during the mitotic phase.

The final phase of the cell cycle begins when cells leave the G2 phase and enter the mitotic (M) phase. The events that occur at mitosis are the morphological manifestation of cell division. As cells pass through the G2/M boundary, they begin to divide into two equal daughter cells as they pass through a series of steps (see the text for details). NEB, nuclear envelope breakdown.
