Important information:

Cell division is the reproduction of cells in a living organisms involving the processes of prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis.  Mitosis is considered the combination of the division of the nucleus and cytokinesis.  The division of the nucleus includes: prophase- where chromosomes condense and nucleoli disappear, prometaphase- where the surrounding of the nucleus breaks down and fibers attach to the chromosomes, metaphase- where chromosomes align at middle of cell, anaphase- where chromatids separate and migrate away from middle; telophase- where nuclear envelopes form around the daughter nuclei, outside of the cell, and here the chromosomes become less condensed, and cytokinesis- when the cell forms what is called a cleavage furrow and splits in two.
