Cytokinesis - Separating Cells


The two-copy partition is called a cytokinesis and occurs in the animal cell from the outside inwards, that is, as if the cell were strangled and split in two (centripetal cytokinesis).

There is a distribution of organelles across the two sister cells. Note that cytokinesis is actually the division of cytoplasm. This division may start already in anaphase, depending on the cell.
