(biology) The stage in the life cycle of a cell between two successive mitotic or meiotic divisions.
(cytology) The division of a cell nucleus in which the genome is copied and separated into two identical halves. It is normally followed by cell division.
(mechanical engineering) An indistinct region in the interface between two substances in composite materials.
cell division in which the nucleus divides into nuclei containing the same number of chromosomes
Interphase is the portion of the cell cycle that is not accompanied by gross changes under the microscope, and includes the G1, S and G2 phases. During interphase, the cell grows (G1), replicates its DNA (S) and prepares for mitosis (G2).
a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth
‘the single large egg cell subdivides by repeated mitosis’; ‘each mitosis seems to be associated with an increase in calcium’;
In cell biology, mitosis () is a part of the cell cycle in which replicated chromosomes are separated into two new nuclei. Cell division gives rise to genetically identical cells in which the total number of chromosomes is maintained.
