a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth.
Life cycle of a cell
the resting phase between successive mitotic divisions of a cell, or between the first and second divisions of meiosis.
the first stage of cell division, before metaphase, during which the chromosomes become visible as paired chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears. The first prophase of meiosis includes the reduction division.
the second stage of cell division, between prophase and anaphase, during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers.
the stage of meiotic or mitotic cell division in which the chromosomes move away from one another to opposite poles of the spindle.
the final phase of cell division, between anaphase and interphase, in which the chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and two nuclei are formed.
a threadlike structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information in the form of genes.
