How many daughter chromosomes are in a human cell at anaphase?
how many chromosomes are there at the end of the anaphase? In a human
During anaphase in a human intestinal cell, there are 92 chromosomes. During anaphase, the 92 chromosomes are separating into two sets of 46, so that at the end of mitosis, there will be two genetically identical nuclei, each containing 46 chromosomes. As the new nuclei are forming, the cytoplasm splits in the process of cytokinesis, resulting in two genetically identical daughter cells, each having 46 chromosomes.
It depends on the type of cell division. In mitosis, 2 daughter cells with the same number of chromosomes as the parent cell are created. In a human, this would be 46 chromosomes. In meiosis, 4 daughter cell with half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell are created. In a human, this would be 23 chromosomes.
In anaphase, the paired chromosomes (sister chromatids) separate and begin moving to opposite ends (poles) of the cell. Spindle fibers not connected to chromatids lengthen and elongate the cell. At the end of anaphase, each pole contains a complete compilation of chromosomes. The paired centromeres in each distinct chromosome begin to move apart. Once the paired sister chromatids separate from one another, each is considered a "full" chromosome. They are referred to as daughter chromosomes…
