|Animal Mitosis||Plant Mitosis|
|Have centrioles, centrosomes, and asters||No centrioles, centrosomes or aster: No Migration of centrioles.|
|Cell becomes rounded before cell division||No change in shape before cell division|
|Cell division induced by multiple hormone to start cell division; no known specific cell division hormone.
|Cell division induced by specific hormone called cytokinin.
|In Telophase, animal cells have a contractile ring made of myosin which contracts to form the two daughter cells.
|Plants have a pre-prophase band that consists of actin and microtubules; in prometaphase this band disappears, and is replaced by a phragmoplast during cytokinesis, which is made of actin, myosin and microtubules that forms the cell wall.|
|Migration of centrioles||No migration of centrioles|
|Furrowing pinching of cytoplasm in cytokinesis. A mid body may form during cytokinesis.
|Cell cytokinesis begins with the formation of a cell plate in the center of cell. No furrowing of the cytoplasm in cytokinesis. No formation of mid body.|
|No cell plate to form in the middle of the cell.||Cell plate becomes a new cell wall. Cell plate of cellulose.|
|Cytokinesis proceeds from the outside inward by the cell membrane pinching in at the center of the cell to make two daughters.||Cell plate grows outward and connects to the existing cell wall to divide the cell into two daughters.|
|Furrow formed between the two daughter cells.||Solid, middle lamella develops between the two daughter cells for permanent adhesion.|
