Mitosis pertains to the series of processes within a cell's nucleus that would lead to the production of identical sets of chromosomes. This is the first part of the M phase in a cell cycle. The end of this series would immediately be followed by cytokinesis.
Which of the following would most likely result if mitosis were allowed to occur for several rounds, but cytokinesis was blocked?
A. Multiple cells would result, but they would all share the same nucleus.
B. One large cell with a single nucleus would result, but each nucleus would have more than the normal diploid number of chromosomes.
C. One large cell with several nuclei would result.
D. Multiple cells would result but each nucleus would have more than the normal diploid number of chromosomes.
