telophase

 [tel´o-fāz]
the last of the four stages of mitosis and of the two divisions of meiosis.

tel·o·phase

(tel'ō-fāz),
The final stage of mitosis or meiosis that begins when migration of chromosomes to the poles of the cell has been completed; the chromosomes progressively lengthen whereas the nuclear membranes of the two daughter nuclei are reconstructed and a cell membrane at the equator complete the separation of the two daughter cells.
Synonym(s): telokinesia
[G. telos, end, + phasis, appearance]

telophase

/telo·phase/ (-fāz) the last of the four stages of mitosis and of the two divisions of meiosis, in which the chromosomes arrive at the poles of the cell and the cytoplasm divides; in plants, the cell wall also forms.

telophase

(tĕl′ə-fāz′, tē′lə-)
n.
The final stage of mitosis or meiosis during which the chromosomes of daughter cells are grouped in new nuclei.

tel′o·phas′ic adj.

telophase

[tel′əfāz]
Etymology: Gk, telos + phasis, appearance
the final of the four stages of nuclear division in mitosis and in each of the two divisions in meiosis. The newly produced daughter chromosomes from the preceding stage (anaphase) assemble at the poles of the spindle and become long and slender, the nuclear membrane forms around them, the nucleolus reappears, and the cytoplasm begins to divide. See also anaphase, interphase, meiosis, metaphase, mitosis, prophase.

telophase

The last phase of MITOSIS, in which the chromosomes of the two daughter cells are grouped together at each separating pole to form new nuclei.

telophase

a stage of NUCLEAR DIVISION in EUKARYOTE cells, occurring once in MITOSIS and twice in MEIOSIS. During telophase, the two sets of chromosomes aggregate at the spindle poles, each set having the same number of chromosomes as the parental cell in mitosis, but half the parental complement in meiosis.

The chromosomes uncoil, become extended and cannot be identified individually. A NUCLEAR MEMBRANE forms around each set of chromosomes and the NUCLEOLI are reformed. The process of cell division (CYTOKINESIS) is completed during this stage.
