- ‘Two pairs of loci were observed in each somatic cell at metaphase and interphase.’
- ‘In animal cells during mitosis and interphase, microtubule growth occurs at plus ends, and microtubule assembly is dominated by plus-end dynamic instability.’
- ‘The chromosomes remain condensed during mitosis and even during interphase, though they do unwind for replication of the DNA.’
