Mitosis


Mitosis is a process that precedes Meiosis (cell division). In this process, the cell works on the reproduction of deoxyribonucleic acid within the nucleus of the cell, acquiring two groups separately and this will lead to their reproduction. Mitosis is related to meiosis since it comprises one of the important phases of the latter, however, mitosis is not related to the reproductive system of the organisms with which it works, mitosis is one of the parts of cell growth of the bodies, the regeneration of cells and the production of natural defenses, but it does not participate in procreation, even mitosis is present in asexual living beings, such as plants, which do not have a relationship with another type of the same specimen to able to reproduce like humans and animals.

Both processes have the same goal, to maintain and protect the original genome of the stem cell from which the specimen came. Every cell has a beginning, and these processes promote continuity of original function. These cells are eukaryotic cells, which contain all the genetic information and hereditary material for the reproduction of the species. Mitosis as a complex process comprises almost the same phases of meiosis, but in plants and some animals that use it for the regeneration of their tissues, they establish strong ties with meiosis, either by their way of separating or combining. their tissues to fulfill their function.

Mitosis originates in the cytoplasm of the cell, through a process called cytokinesis which consists of the collection of DNA data from each of the cell’s compounds to form another similar compound, in another cell complex. Mitosis acts as a transforming mirror of stem cells, creating new components to make way for the replacement, improvement or regeneration of the cell under study. It is important to note that there are organisms whose reproduction process is completely based on the concepts of mitosis and meiosis.
