What is Cytokinesis

Cytokinesis is when the cytoplasm of a single cell divides into two daughter cells where each contains a complete set of chromosomes within a nucleus .

In plant cells, cytokinesis is carried out in a very different way, because the rigid walls of the cells prevent them from dividing in two as in animal cells. In this case, vesicles that come from the Golgi apparatus and are loaded with carbohydrates, line up along the middle of the cell (equator) between the two nuclei.

When the vesicles fuse, they produce a structure called a cell plate, very similar to a compartment or flattened sac that is surrounded by a membrane and filled with carbohydrates with a viscous and sticky texture.
