Mitosis is the process in which a cell partitions itself equally to form two daughter cells. This is integral to cellular growth, repair and reproduction.
Mitosis is a part of the cell cycle in which chromosomes in a cell nucleus are
separated into two identical sets of chromosomes, each in its own nucleus.
Mitosis is nuclear division plus cytokinesis, and produces two identical daughter
cells during prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.

Mitosis is a process where a single cell divides into two identical daughter cells (
cell division). During mitosis one cell<sup>?</sup> divides once to form two identical cells.
