Telophase I and cytokinesis
-The spindle apparatus continues to separate homologous chromosome pairs until the chromosomes reach the poles.
-Each pole now has a haploid set of chromosomes that are each still composed of two sister chromatids attached at the centromere.
-Usually cytokinesis occurs simultaneously with telophase I, forming two haploid daughter cells. Cleavage furrows form in animal cells, and cell plates form in plant cells.
-In some species, nuclear membranes and nucleoli reappear, and the cell enters a period of interkinesis before meiosis II. In other species, the daughter cells immediately prepare for meiosis II.
-Regardless of whether a cell enters interkinesis or not, no DNA replication occurs before Meiosis II.
