Answer to your Health Question

Question:

When the chromosomes line up in mitosis this is known as which phase?

Georgina

Answer:

Dear Georgina,

It is known as Metaphase

The phases of cell cycle and mitosis are

1- Interphase
2 -Preprophase
3 -Prophase
4 -Prometaphase
5- Metaphase
6- Anaphase
7- Telophase
8- Cytokinesis

In the Metaphase Phase the chromosomes, now at their most highly coiled and condensed, become arranged on a plane equidistant from the two poles called the metaphase plate.

The Metaphase Phase is the stage of mitosis and meiosis, following prophase and preceding anaphase.
