Anaphase | A Stage of cell division, specifically a phase of mitosis or meiosis. During mitosis anaphase is defined by the chromosomes moving apart, migrating to opposite ‘poles’ of the cell.
In meiosis, anaphase occurs twice. In the first anaphase of meiosis paired homologous chromosomes separate and migrate to opposite ‘poles’ of the cell. In the second anaphase of meiosis chromatids move apart resulting in the production haploid of gametes.
