1. Anaphase
The stage in mitosis following metaphase . The paired chromatid s are separated from each other and moved to opposite ends of the cell . The stage begins as soon as the centromere s connecting each chromatid to its pair break and ends when the two new sets of chromosome s arrive at opposite ends of the cell.

2. Anaphase I
The stage in the first meiotic division of meiosis that follows metaphase I . The pairs of homologous chromosome s are separated from each other and moved to opposite ends of the cell . This stage begins as soon as homologous chromosomes begin separating and ends when the chromosome s arrive at opposite ends of the cell.

3. Anaphase II
The stage in the second meiotic division of meiosis that follows metaphase II . In each cell produced during the first meiotic division , the paired chromatid s are separated from each other and moved to opposite ends of the cell. The stage begins as soon as the centromere s connecting each chromatid to its pair break and ends when the two new sets of chromosome s arrive at opposite ends of each cell.

4. Anaphase
Phase of mitosis in which the chromosomes begin to separate.

5. First meiotic division
The first of two consecutive divisions of the nucleus of an eukaryotic cell during the process of meiosis . It includes the following stages of meiosis: prophase I , metaphase I , anaphase I , and telophase I .

6. Griseofulvin
Griseofulvin is a fungicide which works by hindering mitosis , in particular by interfering with the spindle and halting chromosome movement during the anaphase stage of mitosis. The compound is produced by the fungus Penicillium griseofulvum.

7. Mitosis
The division of the cell's nucleus and nuclear material of a cell; consists of four stages: prophase , metaphase , anaphase , and telophase . Cell xeroxing. Mitosis occurs only in eukaryotes . The DNA of the cell is replicated during interphase of the cell cycle and then segregated during the four phases of mitosis.

8. Mitotic spindle
A network of microtubules formed during prophase . Some microtubules attach to the centromeres of the chromosomes and help draw the chromosomes apart during anaphase .

9. Second meiotic division
The second of two consecutive divisions of the nucleus of an eukaryotic cell during the process of meiosis . It includes the following stages of meiosis: prophase II , metaphase II , anaphase II , and telophase II .

10. Telophase
The last stage of mitosis , following anaphase . The two sets of chromosome s have finished moving to opposite ends of the cell and begin to decondense. Nuclear membranes reform around each set of chromosomes. The stage ends when two complete nuclei have been formed. Cytokinesis begins shortly after the end of telophase (and mitosis).
