In the anaphase II stage of meiosis, the sister chromatids are separated and begin moving to opposite poles of the cell, according to About.com. When the paired sister chromatids are fully separate, then each is considered to be a full chromosome. These are known as daughter chromosomes.
Anaphase II occurs near the end of the meiosis process. By the end of anaphase II, each pole of the cells will contain its own chromosome group in preparation for the final stage, telophase II.
When telophase II is complete, the meiosis process is over. The result is four daughter cells, each with half the number of chromosomes as the original parent cell.Learn More
Chromatids separate into two sister chromosomes during the anaphase of cell division. Mitosis is a process of nuclear division in which two daughter cells are created from a parent cell.Full Answer >
The chromosome number is reduced during the telophase II stage of meiosis. This last of eight stages of meiosis results in the formation of four daughter cells.Full Answer >
The longest phase of the cell cycle is the Gap 1 phase, or G1 phase. During this phase, the cell gears up for cell division by amassing more organelles and getting larger.Full Answer >
The main events of the anaphase stage of mitosis are the splitting of the sister chromatids and the moving of them to opposite poles inside the cell. The process begins when the centromeres on each chromosome break, freeing the two halves.Full Answer >
