Number of Daughter Cells in Mitosis

How many daughter cells are there in mitosis?


Mitosis creates 2 daughter cells from each original parent cell. During mitosis the duplicated DNA inside the cell’s nucleus divides to give rise to 2 new nuclei, each identical to the original. Strictly speaking, cytokinesis, or the division of the cell itself, occurs right after mitosis.
