The end result of mitosis is two identical daughter cells. These daughter cells are also identical to the parent cell. Mitosis is essential for growth and repair in living organisms. More »

The purpose of mitosis is cell reproduction, regeneration and growth. Mitosis is cell division that occurs in the nucleus of a cell. The result of mitosis is the formation of two cells, called daughter cells, that are ge... More »

Mitosis occurs in almost all cells in plants and animals. It begins in the nucleus of the cell. As neurons become specialized (terminal differentiation) mitosis is switched off, so the cells can no longer reproduce. More »

Mitosis produces two identical daughter cells. The resulting cells not only look alike, they also carry the exactly the same genetic information. Mitosis consists of several phases and can only happen if certain factors ... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

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 »

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 »

The two main differences in mitosis and meiosis are that meiosis involves only one cell division, not two, and meiosis results in the production of germ cells or cells that produce gametes. In mitosis, one round yields t... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA
