Cytokinesis ensures that each end product (daughter cell) receives the cellular structures needed for life, such as cytoplasm and organelles. Mitosis and meiosis are different types of divisions and result in different numbers of daughter cells. Figure 2-4 provides an illustration of the two processes. Mitosis.
