Please help me list some of the major differences in the process of mitosis as it occurs in higher plants and as it occurs animals.
Here are two.
1) Centrioles move to opposite poles during mitosis. Well, at least in the cells of organisms that have them. Would that be plant cells or animal cells?
2) Cytokinesis is not technically a part of mitosis, but is usually considered as if it were. During cytokinesis, a cleavage furrow forms, and continues to pinch in until the cell's cytoplasm is divided into two cells. Does that occur in plants or animals?
