UNEQUAL DIVISION

In this animation we see how an unequal division of the centrosome can result in an unequal cell division. Notice how the smaller mitotic apparatus gets "pushed" to the edge of the dividing cell. The RED area at the bottom of the unequal cell appears to really exist, "sticking" to the mitotic apparatus when it comes into contact.
