1

Prophase 2

1. Chromosomes consisting of 2 chromatids, condense and become visible again.
2. Nuclear envelope breaks down and spindle formation begins.

2

Metaphase 2

1. Individual chromosomes assemble of cell equator.
2. Due to crossing over, chromatids are no longer identical so more genetic variation takes place in M2.

3

Anaphase 2

1. Results in chromatids of individual chromosomes being pulled to opposite poles after division of centromeres.

4

Telophase 2

1. Chromatids assemble at the poles and chromosomes uncoil and form chromatin again.
2. Nuclear envelope reforms and nucleus becomes visible.

5

Resulting cells

- 4 daughter cells
- Haploid due to reduction division.
- Genetically different from each other due to crossing over and independent assortment.
