Mitosis under the microscope.

Mitosis is a process by which a parent cell divides into two genetically identical daughter cells. Observing mitosis in plants is typically one of the first lessons in introductory biology laboratory exercises. Here we reminisce on our biology I labs by presenting a collection of fixed Arabidopsis suspension cells at various stages of cell division. The two images to the left show cells at metaphase and anaphase. The cell on the top right shows a structure called a phragmoplast, which facilitates assembly of a cell wall between the two new daughter cells. Microtubules (green) function in separating the chromosomes (red). #everynoblestory #biology #cellbiology #arabidopsis #thegreatdivide #pullingapart #celldivision #plantbiology #plantcell #chromosomes #microscopy #microtubules #cytoskeleton @noblefoundation #mitosis #immunofluorescence #confocal #microscope #sciart #imageoftheday
