This cycle is usually divided into interphase and mitosis, mitosis itself being subdivided into four phases (Fig. 16). The length of the cell cycle varies with the kind of organism involved, the type of cell within an organism, and with temperature and other environmental factors. In most instances, however, interphase may occupy up to 90% or more of the time it takes to complete the cycle. The relatively small amount of time involved in actual division explains why most cells viewed with a microscope are in interphase, and cells in stages of mitosis can be hard to find.
