Cytokinesis is the process by which two cells split after cell division, or mitosis. The process is different between animal and plant cells. Mitosis is the process of nuclear division. More »

Cytokinesis in animal cells involves creating a contractile ring that pinches inwards, eventually splitting the cell in half. Cytokinesis begins in the anaphase (beginning of nuclear division) and continues until telopha... More »

A multi-nucleated cell is formed when a cell undergoes mitosis but not cytokinesis. A primary example of a cell type that undergoes nuclear division but not cytoplasmic division is a skeletal muscle cell. More »

Mitosis and cytokinesis differ in that mitosis the process in which a duplicated genome within a cell separates into identical halves, while cytokinesis involves the division of cellular cytoplasm into two daughter cells... More »

Plant cells divide through the process of mitosis, followed by cytokinesis. Mitosis in plant cells is similar to mitosis in animal cells, which occurs in four stages: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. More »

Karyokinesis is the process in which a cell's nucleus is divided by mitosis or meiosis, and cytokinesis is the division of the ctyoplasm in a cell. They are biologically similar processes, with minor differences. More »

Cellular reproduction requires a nucleus and a mitochondria in order to perform mitosis, the process of cell division. Mature red blood cells do not contain a nucleus or mitochondria, making mitosis impossible. More »
