Cells undergo mitosis because there must be a process in which the nucleus is divided in order for there to be a successful reproduction for cells. No mitosis, no cell reproduction.
skin cells are undergoing mitosis continuously because it allows growth and replaces worn out or damaged cells.
Bacteria is constantly forming on the outer layer of your skin. It is looking for a way to invade your body. Your body reacts by simply throwing away the outer layer of your skin. It does that a cell at a time, but it does it constantly. Those cells must be replaced. To do that, the cells underneath… must constantly reproduce and create new skin cells. (MORE)
The cell would have two nuclei, and the cell would not be able to function properly.
All cells in the nervous system do not divide or replicate and thus do not undergo mitosis.
Mitosis is the form of cell division that most eukaryotic cells undergo. In humans, all somatic (non-sex) cells use mitosis to divide. Sex-cells use meiosis instead of mitosis.
No. Red blood cells lack nucleus and its sole purpose is to carry oxygen until its demise. Because of this, red blood cells are produced by pluripotent stem cells in your bone marrow.
Somatic cells (which are all cells excluding sex cells) undergo mitosis. In terms of organisms, mitosis occurs only in eukaryotic cells.
It would be in the Interphase stage. Interphase is the stage where a normal somatic cell is not undergoing mitosis and is the period of growth and DNA replication before the start of Mitosis.
Yes they very much do. Skin cell do undergo mitosis because very day we lose some skin cell.
It will start to multiply and all the organelles will be acting in a different way
the cells which must help for a human's growth undergo it, in other words most do
In accordance with Human Anatmy AND Physiology laboratory manual Ninth Edition of Elaine N. Marieb Susan J. Mitchell, although mitosis is usually accompanied by cytokinesis, in some instances cytoplasmic division does not occur, leading to the formation of binucleate(or multinucleate)cells.
Cells undergo rapid mitosis in the body in areas that feature ahigh turnover. Epithelial and endothelial cells constantlyreplicate to renew skin and vascular lining. Also, hematopoieticprogenitor cells constantly replace blood cells in circulation.
No they can't because they are anucleate, meaning they don't have a nucleus, the structure responsible for mitosis.
For a typical cell, about 20-25 hours. However, cancerous cells can complete the process in about 18 hours, and some bacteria run through it in only 20 minutes.
DNA replication is the process that occurs when mitosis is not inprocess. Mitosis divides chromosomes in the cell nucleus.
Just above the Dermis is a layer of cells called "Stratum Basale" where mitosis is continuously happening. This helps us to keep our integumentary system up to par and able to keep microbes out in the case of a tear or cut in our skin, because our skin cells are being continually replaced.
all of them. that is how your body replenishes the dead cells, such as your dead skin cells that fall off your skin daily.
The only cells in the human body which don't divide are the brain cells. However in reality the sex cells do not go through mitosis either as they divide twice to ensure the are haploid in a process called meiosis. So brain cells do not divide at all and sex cells do divide but not by mitosis,… by meiosis. (MORE)
Not really Two daughter cells are produced after cytokinesis.They are identical to mother cell and each other
Skin cells are undergoing mitosis continuously because we are constantly shedding skin cells so they need to be replaced by undergoing mitosis so that we have skin!
Generally speaking, all cells except for nerve cells store energy to drive chemical processes during cell division. So before undergoing Mitosis, they first prepare themselves that results to their growth in size until they had stored enough energy, then the cells are ready to divide themselves.
All human body cells except for sex cells, such as sperm and ova, have undergone mitosis.
A mitotic division results in the formation of two daughter cells that are identical to the parent cell. The parent cell divides into the two daughter cells. The newly formed cells have diploid number of chromosomes (just like the parent cell)
A cell undergoes mitosis if the cell is somatic and if all the necessary preparations have been made in interphase.
Many somatic cells are constantly undergoing mitosis. An example would be epithelial cells that are constantly being replaced. The cell cycle can be arrested for certain reasons however. This ceases in the cell cycle, or arrests, are due to failures of the cell in passing check points. These check p…oints will often catch cells that have performed mistakes and have become susceptible to becoming cancerous. (MORE)
The gametes (undergoes meiosis instead of mitosis.) . Neurons (they are in G 0 phase, therefore only do their function as a nerve cell.)
The cytoplasm level would be too low in both cells, and this could result in cell shinkage (plasmolysis or crenation). This is often the first step in apoptosis (cell death).
mitosis means , '' the type of cell dividion in which number of chromosomes remain same in daughter cell as well as parent cell..... All type of sometic cells undergo mitosis.... and germ cells undergo meiosis.
No, plant cells DO undergo mitosis, but there are some minor changes. During the end of telophase and the beginning of cytokinesis in animal cells, the cell membrane pinches in half to form the 2 new daughter cells. However, in plant cells, a thicker cell plate forms between the 2 new cells, and …they pinch off and the outside hardens into a new cell wall. (MORE)
Mitosis: Cells undergo mitosis to replace dead cells. If there is/are cell(s) absent in any part of the body, mitosis occurs to replace the missing cell(s). So basically, if an organism is able to keep all its cells from being harmed in any way, mitosis will never be required as no cell will need r…eplacement. Meiosis: Cells undergo meiosis to form gametes (sex cells). These cells are able to fuse with the opposite gamete in order to fertilize and create offsprings. If meiosis did not occur, the continuity of any species that reproduced sexually would be in jeopardy. Because meiosis occurs and gametes form, individuals become fertile and are able to produce offsprings in order to continue their species. (MORE)
They're part of a eukaryotic organism aren't they? Sheesh, use some logic. What the hell do you think, they're gonna use binary fission? God.
No. Red Blood Cells (RBC) are the final cell in a line of cell differentiations starting with a stem cell in bone marrow. During that differentiation the pre-RBC ejects its nucleus and all its DNA. This allows more room for the Oxygen carrying hemoglobin protein. This also means that the cell can no… longer undergo Mitosis (cell division). Because of this, new RBCs are constantly being made in the bone marrow by new stem cells beginning this line of differentiation. (MORE)
Only meristem cells can undergo mitosis throught the process of cresting a cell plate where cell membrance and cell wall material can be laid down to form new ones. Also, plant cells don't have cetrioles so produce tubulin fibres rather than spindles which are produced in the cytoplasm.
No. They are gametes and already contain haploid number of chromosomes in mammals. They are stored in the body until they are reabsorbed or used for fertilization.
Your "germ" (or sex, but I prefer germ) cells undergo mitosis to create more diploids, but then they undergo Meiosis I to form a haploid. In boys, the germ cells will undergo Meiosis II to form their complete germ cells. In girls, the cell will only complete Meiosis II if the egg is fertilized. So… the answer is sort of yes... the diploids will undergo Mitosis, but to actually get germ cells... they must undergo Meiosis. (MORE)
"Production of two identical nuclei." Actually in some cases thenuclei are not identical due to mitotic crossovers or mutation. Theresult is one cell producing two resultant cells.
All cells except germ cells (which undergo meiosis to produce gametes) and red blood cells (which have no nucleus).
Only body/somatic cells undergo mitotic division. However, not all body cells will go through mitosis. For instance, mature nerve cells and muscle do not have the ability to divide.
Shortly after childbirth, nerve cells ( neurons ) stop reproducing. Therefore, nerve cells are not undergoing mitosis at all; rather, they are in the G 0 phase. During the G 0 phase, no preparations are made for cell division: the cell simply lives. While nerve cells do not reproduce, they do form… connections between each other, establishing a more complex network as time passes. (MORE)
2 diploid cells They are identical to each other and mother nuclei. Mieosis produce haploid cells
Since Euakaryotic cells are the only ones that can go through mitosis, any animal with a Eukaryotic cell. Ex. fungi, plants
Mitosis is the main process of cell replication in multicellular organisms. In humans, all somatic (non-sex) cells undergo mitosis if they divide.
So they can grow and divide to make up all the cells, tissues, and organs that make up the human body. Also, cells will undergo mitosis to repair an area of the body in which tissue is damaged, such as a cut. Since the cut is an open wound, and the skin has been seperated, the cells that once made u…p the cells in the originally unbroken skin have been "killed", so to say. They're gone for good. But the body wants to repair this area and make the body whole again, so it produces new cells, which will become skin cells, and these cells grow and divide as necessary for the process of mitosis so that they can fill up the space and heal the cut.

no It is different in cells. Skin cells divide rapidly. Liver cells divide very slowly
because the undergo binary fission, as they have no cell membrane bounded structures or nucleus.
The cells that make up your brain usually do not go through mitosis when mature.
Almost all cells in the human body under go mitosis and cytokinesis or cell division.
Somatic cells (body cells) undergo mitosis. . An example of this could be a skin cell, as the skin cell replacing the dying skin cell must be an exact clone. . Sex cells (gametes) undergo meiosis.. Because meiosis results in half the number of chromosomes in it's daughter cells, gametes are the …only cells that undergo meiosis in the body. . (MORE)
