How many chromosomes does a human body cell contain in anaphase?
Human body cells originally have 23 chromosomes. These chromosomes make copies of themselves. Consequently, when cell division begins and progresses through its stages of prophase, metaphase and anaphase, the human body cell contains 46 chromosomes. After anaphase, the cell divides, and each daughter cell contains 23 chromosomes.References:”Biology”; Neil A. Campbell, Jane B. Reece and Lawrence G.
