How many divisions does mitosis have?

After mitosis two identical cells are created with the same original number of chromosomes, 46. Haploid cells that are generated through meiosis, such as egg and sperm, only have 23 chromosomes, because, remember, meiosis is a "reduction division."

In respect to this, how many divisions are involved in meiosis?

Back to Top. Two successive nuclear divisions occur, Meiosis I (Reduction) and Meiosis II (Division). Meiosis produces 4 haploid cells. Mitosis produces 2 diploid cells.
