The study of mitosis and cytokinesis in cells of higher plants has a long and distinguished history. From the outset, the distinct parallels in mitotic processes between plant and animal cells have been apparent, leading to the conclusion that a similar substructure and mechanism underlies both. However, it was also recognized early that there are notable differences. Mitotic plant cells, for… CONTINUE READING
