Full Answer

Mitosis is the replication of a cell by producing daughter cells that are exactly identical. The daughter cell contains the same DNA and performs the same function as the original cell. After mitosis takes place, the original cell may simply die and shed away, while the daughter cells take its place. Because of mitosis, people are able to continually regenerate new skin. For instance, cuts heal, and people grow bigger as they go through childhood.
