The Cell Cycle and Events of M-Phase

ID #1941

Are cytokinesis and mitosis two separate parts of the cell cycle along with interphase, or is cytokinesis a step in mitosis? I know it's the separation of cytoplasm and mitosis is separation of chromosomes, but sometimes we talk about it as if it's the last step of mitosis.


Cytokinesis is not the last step of mitosis, but it is the last thing that finishes in M-phase. Remember that M-phase consists of both mitosis and cytokinesis.
