The division of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells does not occur during any of the phases of mitosis. Rather, this physical separation occurs during cytokinesis, a process that takes place right after mitos... More »

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 »

Plant cells reproduce through mitosis—a form of cell division that causes the cell to split itself into two identical daughter cells. The plant itself reproduces through meiosis, which is another form of cell division th... More »

Mitosis is the division of a cell to create two identical daughter cells, whereas meiosis forms daughter cells that are different than the parent cell. Mitosis is a means of replacing old cells; meiosis forms sex cells, ... More »
