This video shows mitosis and cytokinesis in an animal cell. Watch the right side as we repeat the video several times. During cytokinesis, a ring of microfilaments interacts with myosin proteins, seen as white dots. This interaction causes the ring to contract, dividing the cytoplasm between the two daughter cells.
