Cell division in which where the daughter cells produced are completely identical to the parent
cell

INTERPHASE:

The phase in cell division where all organelles and DNA are replicated through G1, S and G2. S
in the cell cycle is the point at which identical DNA is synthesised.
The…

METAPHASE:

The centromeres of the chromosomes attach to the euquator (the widest part of the spindle)
of the spindle fibres




ANAPHASE

The centromeres of the chromatids split at this point in cell division as the spindle fibres
shorten pulling the two halves in opposite directions
This stage ends once each…

TELOPHASE:

This is the final stage of mitotic division
Chromosomes unravel and the nuclear envelope reforms as the 2 sets of genetic material
become enclosed in separate nuclei




CYTOPLASMIC DIVISION:

In animal cells, the cell surface membrane pinches and contstricts around the centre of the
cell
A protein filament ring…
