How does the process of binary fission in Amoeba differ from that of Leishmania ?

Expert Answer:

Dear student,
In amoeba, splitting of the cell into two during cell divison can take place in any plane. Leishmania has a whip like structure at one end of the cell, hence binary fission occurs in a definite orientation in relation to this structure.
