Cell Division


Mitosis is a cell division in which two identical daughter cells are produced by the division of one parent cell.

In this type of division, same chromosome number is maintained in all cells. Mitosis is the cell division which leads to growth and development.

As the number of chromosomes in the daughter cell remain equal to the parent cell this type of cell division is also known as equational division.
