Cell division. Immunofluorescent light micrograph of a human epithelial cell (centre) during the early anaphase stage of mitosis. Mitosis is the cycle of replication and division by which new body cells are formed. Here, the chromosomes (blue) of the parent cell have duplicated and paired up along middle of the cell. They are then pulled apart by microtubules (spindles, green) and move to opposite poles of the cell, in a process called cytokinesis. When the cell has split, two identical daughter cells are formed.
