Does DNA replication happen before or during Mitosis?
The DNA replication must occur before mitosis starts.
Prophase is one of the stages in the process of mitosis, the stages of mistosis are : 1. Prophase 2. Metaphase 3. Anaphase 4. Telophase. So metaphase, anaphase, and telophase are what happends in mitosis and does not happen in prophase. And what happens in prophase that does not in mitosis is that the sister chromatids that were formed during interphase have shortened and thickened and are now visible with a light microscope.
First of all, the difference between MITOSIS and MEIOSIS is simple. Meiosis is ONLY for the replication of sex cells. Where one cell divides twice to create four gametes (sperm or egg). Each gamete has half the number of chromosomes needed to create a full cell so when they come together, they create one full cell. This allows for Mitosis to happen, creating a new being. Mitosis is for the replication of body cells, basically…
