Definition

Interphase is a phase of the cell cycle. During interphase, the cell obtains nutrients. This is considered the living phase of the cell. Most eukaryotic cells spend most of their time in interphase. Interphase is not a resting phase as once thought. The cell cycle, or cell-division cycle, is the series of events that take place in a eukaryotic cell leading to its replication. ... Kingdoms Animalia - Animals Fungi Plantae - Plants Protista A eukaryote (also spelled eucaryote) is an organism with complex cells, in which the genetic material is organized into membrane-bound nuclei. ...


There are 3 stages of interphase: G1 in which the cell grows and functions normally. Once it grows too large it enters the synthesis (S) phase. In S phase the cell makes exact copies of its DNA. It is now ready for G2 phase where it makes sure all of its chromosomes and organelles are ready for mitosis.

 Some human cells divide every 24 hours. 

In that case, interphase takes about 23 hours and mitosis takes the other 1 hour. it is of variable duration depending on the function of the cell. It is the period which the cell normally carries out the functions of organelles, this causes the nucleoli to increase in size. Therefore, the time mitosis takes depends on the variety and size of the cell.

Interphase is a phase of the cell cycle, defined only by the absence of cell division.
Interphase is the step before the mitotic phase, though it is frequently erroneously thought to be part of mitosis.
During interphase, the chromosomes are found arranged in the nucleus and appear as a network of long, thin threads, called the chromatin.
