Concept 10: Meiosis II: Prophase II. Meiosis II begins without any further replication of the chromosomes. In prophase II, the nuclear envelope breaks down and the spindle apparatus forms. To replay the prophase II animation, click the Replay button.
In respect to this, what is the difference between prophase 1 and 2 of meiosis?
2. What is the difference between prophase of mitosis and prophase 1 of meiosis? Meiosis= homologous chromosomes each composed of 2 sister chromosomes come together as pairs. The resulting structure, consisting of four chromatids, is called a tetrad.
What are the major events that occur in prophase?
-Prophase--nuclear envelope breakdown, chromosome condensation, spindle formation. -Metaphase--chromosomes are lined up precisely on the metaphase plate, or middle of the cell. -Telophase--chromatids begin to decondense and become chromatin. Spindle disappears.
