Unformatted text preview: type of homologous chromosome. The key to reducing chromosome number while maintaining all of the genetic information is the pairing and separation of homologs. Anaphase I Telophase I Telophase I and Interkinesis • Typically two new nuclei are formed, each with one set of the homologous chromosomes • Cytokinesis will form two cells. Each chromosome is still replicated (which occurred in pre-meiotic interphase), and essentially the cells are just preparing for the second division. Some cells do not bother with cytokinesis here, or even form new nuclear envelopes, which will just have to be degraded during meiosis II, anyway....
