what would happen if cytokinesis occured without mitosis???
Not knowing exactly how the cell would divide, it seems impossible to tell the chromosomal distribution between the two cells, except that it probably would be less than the diploid number in at least one daughter cell. If the nuclear envelope does not disintegrate, possibly one cell could receive all the chromosomes, while the other could receive none.
However, this is not my area of expertise. Even so, I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
