Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The term Interphase was used to refer to the cell as the 'resting phase' of the cell cycle and it was later found to be incorrect. It was discovered that the cell was still undergoing a process. The cell at this stage was discovered that it is actually still functioning during this phase. It was found out that the cell is preparing for mitosis during this phase. The cell at this phase still grows and normally works, as well as still replicating its DNA readying it for the next mitotic division.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
