Cell Division

Cell Division is the process where a single cell divides into two identical daughter cells. Cell division is necessary for the growth and repair of damaged areas anywhere on your body. There are three parts to cell division: Interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis.

Interphase is the first step in cell division. During interphase, the cell goes through its regular processes and prepares itself for mitosis. Mitosis includes four main stages, known as PMAT. Lastly, the cell goes through cytokinesis, the process where the cell actually divides.
