Prophase is the first phase in mitosis and it is a process that’s separates the duplicated genetic material carried in the nucleus of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells.
- About half of the mitotic division occurs during the prophase.
- While the nucleolus breaks down, the nuclear membrane disintegrates, creating several tiny vesicles.
- The centrosome divides into two daughter centrosomes as it self-duplicates. This diverts attention to the cell’s contrast ends.
