plant vs. animal mitosis

What's the difference in mitosis and cytokinesis between plant and animal cells? :S:S (help pleeease :oops: )

mitosis and meiosis

Centrioles are found only in animal cells. In plants the nuclear and cell division are mainly localized in special regions called meristems. This rapidly dividing region will either elongate the tips of stems and roots or expand the girth of the plant, in animals, cells divide everywhere, all the time. The division process is essentially the same for plants and animals. The main difference comes when it is time for cytoplasmic division. A plant cell builds a new cell wall to divide its two daughter cells, and an animal cell will pinch in two, or cleave.

True, in plants, a membrane vesicle is formed between the two splitting daughter cells. Which soon becomes the cell membrane;moreover, animals were well enough by lara.

your friend answer this question completly but
in animal cells when they want to sytokines they use a protein belt this belt round the cell and get tight and tighter until cell divide in 2 cells
