    Im being asked to give evidence on how I know a specific cell is in anaphase. I am really confused with daughter chromosomes and sister chromatids.

    and would I be right in saying that in anaphase the sister chromatids seperate and become daughter chromosomes? im so stuck on this

    Pleaseeeee can someone help! Thank you in advance

    would i be right in saying 'The centromeres have divided in the cell, causing each pair of sister chromatids to separate. The spindles fibres shorten, the kinetochores separate, pulling the chromatids to opposite cell poles?

    For the question itself, its sufficient to say that the each sister chromatid in a pair is pulled to opposite ends of the cell.
