Importance of cell division for a living cell.

What is the cell division?

  • Cell division is the process by which a cell called the parent cell divides into cells called daughter cells.
  • When the cell divides everything inside it divides also. The nucleus and the chromosomes divide and the mitochondria divide also.

 Two types cell division

1. Mitosis

2. Meiosis

  • Cell division con produce the progeny from some multicellular organisms such as those plants which grow from cutting.
  •  In unicellular organism cell division reproduce an entire organism

E.g.:- Amoeba

  • Cell division also enables sexually reproducing organisms to develop from a single cell the fertilized egg or zygote.
  • Cell division involves in repairing of cells.

E.g.:- Bone marrow makes the new blood cells.

  • It is important because it distributes the identical genetically material to daughter cell.
  • With the cell division growth occur through an increase in volume and enlargement of the outer membrane.
  • Without cell division death will quickly ensure.
