Anaphase - Displacement Phase


The spindle fibers begin to shorten. As a result, each batch of sister chromosomes is pulled to opposite poles of the cell ("ana" indicates backward movement).

As each chromid becomes a new chromosome, it can be considered that the cell is temporarily tetraploid.

Telophase - End Phase (telos = end)

  • Chromosomes begin the process of de-respiration.
  • The nucleoli reappear in the new cell nuclei.
  • The library reorganizes on each child core.
  • Each centriole pair is already in the definitive location in future daughter cells.
