In what part of mitosis does the nuclear membrane disappear? My book says that in prometaphase, "the nuclear membrane fragments", but when I looked online to verify this, I found some sources that said that nuclear membrane disappears in prophase, and some sources that said that the nuclear membrane disappears in metaphase. Which is correct?
