Meiosis 1 & 2 Stages
DNA coils into chromosomes, the nucleolus and nuclear envelope disappear, the mitotic spindle forms, and synapsis (crossing-over) occurs.
Tetrads line up randomly along the midline, spindle fibers attach to the centromere of each homologous chromosome.
Homologous chromosomes move to the opposite poles of the cell
The chromosomes reach the opposite end of cell and cytokinesis begins
Spindle fibers form and begin to move the chromosomes toward the midline of the dividing cell.
Chromosomes move to the midline of the dividing cell, facing opposite poles of the dividing cell
The chromatids seperate and move toward opposite poles of the cell.
A nuclear membrane forms around the chromosomes in each of the 4 new cells.
