Cell cycle


The length of a complete cell cycle varies greatly among organisms. Typically a mammalian cell takes about 24 hours to complete a cell cycle, of which 90% is interphase.

  • Occupies most of the cell cycle
  • Sometimes known as the resting phase because no division takes place

Nuclear division: 

  • Nuckeus divides 
  • Into two new cells (mitosis) or four (meiosis)

Division of the cytoplasm (cytokenesis): 

  • Cytoplasm divides to produce two new cells (mitosis) or four new cells (meiosis)
