Mitosis: Post-Mitosis Daughter Cells

Mitosis: Post-Mitosis Daughter Cells

When telophase is complete and the new cell membrane (or wall in the case of the onion root tips) is being formed, the nuclei have almost matured to the pre-mitotic state. The final steps are completion of the total formation of a membrane between each of the new daughter cells to yield two separate new cells. The photomicrograph above illustrates two newly formed cells that have just completed the process of mitosis.
