Why do cells undergo mitosis?

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.

Why are your skin cells continuously undergoing mitosis?

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 (MORE)

What type of cells 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.

Do red blood cells undergo 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.

Which cells undergo mitosis?

Somatic cells (which are all cells excluding sex cells) undergo mitosis. In terms of organisms, mitosis occurs only in eukaryotic cells.

If the cell undergoes mitosis but not cytokinesis the product is what?

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.

Why are skins cells undergoing mitosis continuously?

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.

What types of cells are in your body are no longer undergoing mitosis?

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, (MORE)

What are plant cells doing when they are not undergoing mitosis?

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.

What is the result when a cell undergoes 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)

When a cell undergo mitosis?

A cell undergoes mitosis if the cell is somatic and if all the necessary preparations have been made in interphase.

Is the cell constantly undergoing mitosis?

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 (MORE)

What cells do undergo mitosis?

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.

Plant cells do not undergo mitosis?

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 (MORE)

Why do cells undergo mitosis an meiosis?

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 (MORE)

Can nerve cells undergo mitosis?

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.

Can red blood cell undergo mitosis?

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 (MORE)

Are there any plant cells that do not undergo mitosis?

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.

Are sex cells undergoing mitosis?

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 (MORE)

Do all cells undergo mitosis division?

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.

What mitosis phase are nerve cells undergoing?

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 (MORE)

Why do normal body cells undergo mitosis?

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 (MORE)

What cells undergo meiosis and mitosis?

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 (MORE)
