The major difference between prophase I and prophase II is the genetic recombination process that occurs during prophase I, but does not repeat in prophase II. During prophase I, the duplicated homologous pairs line up a... More »

Prophase II is the stage of meiosis when the nuclear membrane breaks apart and the spindle apparatus is formed. It is the first stage of the second meiotic division (meiosis II) and follows telophase I. More »

In prophase I the nuclear envelope disintegrates, and the chromosomes within condense and cross over. In prophase II there are half as many chromosomes, and these are sometimes already condensed from the previous process... More »

The stages of meiosis 1 and 2 are as follows: prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I, telophase I, cytokinesis, prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, telophase II and cytokinesis again. There are two steps of cytokinesis ... More »

Both mitosis and meiosis are types of cell division that share many similarities, and both share the same basic stages of prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase, according to the University of Illinois at Chicago. B... More »

The main events of meiosis include prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. A cell in meiosis goes through two divisions, meiosis I and meiosis II, in which each division consists of the same stages to produce gamete... More »
