Cytokinesis is accomplished in animal cells by a narrowing cleavage furrow that pulls inward and eventually splits the cell, while plant cells divide through the formation of a new cell wall that grows outward from the c... More »

During cytokinesis, animal cells form a structure between the two daughter cells called a cleavage furrow. A cleavage furrow forms when the cytoskeleton pulls the plasma membrane inward. Plant cells form a cell plate bet... 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 »

The main difference between plant cells and animals cells is that plant cells possess a cell wall and animal cells do not. Animal cells have an irregular shape, and plant cells have a fixed, rectangular shape. More »

There are many differences between plant and animal cells, but one of the most obvious differences is that plant cells have a cell wall. Animal cells do not have a cell wall. Animal cells have an irregular shape, and pla... More »

The main difference between plant and human cells is that plant cells have a cell wall as well as a cell membrane and that some plant cells have chlorophyll. Another difference is that while there are several types of ce... More »

Cytokinesis differs in plants and animals because unlike animal cells, plant cells have a cell wall that needs to be split up. Mitosis and cytokinesis are not the same thing; mitosis is the division of the components of ... More »
