Hi, I'm Michael Maidaa. And this is in what phase are organelles and molecules required for cell division. It is impossible to assign the specific organelles and molecules to certain phase. That is because they're present throughout almost every single phase. Instead, we'll discuss the key components of cellular division or mitosis. Here we have a cell that's ready to divide. So we have one of the most important components, which is the chromosome. The chromosome contains all the DNA and it's the thing that's been duplicated and split into two different cells. Another key component is centrosome. The centrosome is where the mitotic spindle will form from. From the centrosome we get microtubules spreading out from it. When the microtubules have spread out, we now have the mitotic spindle. Which can then control where the chromosomes move throughout the cell. So to recap, we have chromosomes which are the cell's DNA and the most important part of the division. We also have centrosomes, and that is where the mitotic spindle will form from. Finally, we have microtubules, which will shoot out from the centrosomes to make the mitotic spindle. I'm Michael Maidaa and this has been what phases are organelles and molecules required for cell division.
