From one to two: cytokinesis in mesenchymal stem cells

Cytokinesis, as we briefly introduced in our mitosis in Mesenchymal Stem Cells post, refers to the obtention of two separated daughter cells after mitosis[1]. The process of separation can coincide in time with anaphase and/or telophase, the two final steps in...
