Importance of cell division for a living cell

  • Cell division is the process by which a parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells. Cell division usually occurs as part of a larger cell cycle.
1) All living things are made of cells.

  • Cell is the basic unit of structure and function in organic. All organisms made of one or more cells. cell has been create from various organelles.
2) The cell is the basic unit of structure and function in living thing.

  • Cells are independent, single celled organisms that take in nutrients, excrete wastes, detect and respond to their environment, move, breathe, grow and reproduce.

3) All cells come from exiting cells.

  •  Cell is the fundamental unit of structure and function in all living organisms.
  • The activities of an organism depend on the total activity of independent cells.

4) Cellular growth.

  •  In more primitive life forms, cell division serves as a means of reproduction called binary fission, occurs in organisms that have not evolved sexual reproduction or have no use for sex.

5) Cell repair

  •  Animal, plant, fungal and bacterial cells divide to allow an increase in number and the repair of damaged cell in multicellular organisms.
6) Cell division can produce the progeny from same multicellular organisms such as those plants which grow from cutting.
