Best Answer

This sounds like a question being asked of participants in a laboratory exercise, examining squashed onion roots stained to display chromosomes.

As such, it is best to answer it by doing the practical exercise!

You might expect prophase to be long (using the term "prophase" to include the stage "prometaphase" that is distinguished by some scientists). This is because the chromosomes have to condense from the extended form that they are in during interphase, to a supercoiled form suitable for movement later in mitosis.

Also, during prometaphase the chromatids become attached to spindle fibers, and the cell has a checkpoint at this stage, that usually prevents non-disjunction (sending the wrong number of chromosomes to the daughter-nuclei).

The last stage of mitosis?

The last stage of mitosis is the Telophase, where the cell membrane caves in on itself to eventually split into two separate cells.


What happens in the stage mitosis?

Mitosis is not the stage. Mitosis is the action which the cell undergoes. The stages of mitosis are: Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase. In these stages the cell splits into 2 identical daughter cells.


Which phase of mitosis is the longest and why?

Interphase is the longest because 90% of mitosis occurs in this stage and it is when the cells replicate.


What type of cell does mitosis produce?

Mitosis produce somatic cells,In the sense that it produces cells in the body. However, mitosis does not complete the cell multiplying process. It is the second stage.


What are daughter cells like in mitosis?

Two Daughter cells are the final stage of mitosis meaning this is where the mitosis is done by going through a lot of different stages. it is the same as the cell when we start except at the end of the mitosis we have two cells. so the cells doubles at every single growth and it happens by mitosis.

Does mitosis produce somatic cells?

Yes, in the sense that it produces cells in the body. However, mitosis does not complete the cell multiplying process. It is the second stage.

Which stage does the cell is cleaved into two new daughter cells?

Mitosis is the stage where the cell is cleaved into two new daughter cells. Mitosis is the process where cells reproduce by duplicating DNA and dividing into two identical cells. Each cell has a complete set of chromosomes.
