How Cells Divide: Mitosis vs. Meiosis
Page 14 of 15 | Next | Previous


Mitosis


Meiosis





Mitosis and cytokinesis are complete.

Telophase II
The chromatids arrive at the either end of each cell and new nuclear membranes form.

With meiosis in a female, there is only one dividing cell at this point. As in telophase I, the cytoplasm of the cell will be concentrated in one of the two emerging cells. The resulting large cell will become an egg cell. The smaller cell will degenerate.
