The biological process by which one cell divides into two or more cells is known as cell division. There are two types of cell division: mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis is the most common form of cell division and results i... More » Science Biology Cells

Cellular division is important because without these changes, most organisms would die. All life begins and thrives through cellular processes, and cell division is the process of development and transformation. Accordin... More »

The division of the cell nucleus is called either mitosis or meiosis, depending on which type of division has occurred. Meiosis is a type of cell nucleus division specific to the reproduction of the species. More »

During cell division, a cell divides into two identical daughter cells. This process, called mitosis, has four stages: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. More » Science Biology Cells

Cell division is limited by a process called cellular senescence, during which cells in culture divide more slowly before stopping entirely. The cells do not necessarily die during senescence, but they no longer replicat... More »

Human skin cells contain 46 chromosomes, or 23 chromosome pairs, and after mitosis, the two daughter cells also have 46 chromosomes. Mitosis is a cellular process that creates two identical daughter cells from one origin... More »

The spindle fibers are used to control the movement and segregation of chromosomes in both the mitosis cell division and meiosis cell division. The spindles are referred to as the spindle apparatus and also mitotic spind... More »
