Compare meiotic anaphase I with meiotic anaphase II. Which meiotic anaphase is most similar to the mitotic anaphase?

Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To explain: The comparison between the meiotic anaphase I and meiotic anaphase II.

Introduction: Meiotic anaphase I is marked by the separation of the paired homologous chromosome and each chromosome pair move towards opposite poles. In meiotic anaphase II, sister chromatids split due to the separation of centromeres.

Explanation of Solution

No.CharacteristicsAnaphase IAnaphase II
1.Cell typeAnaphase I occurs in diploid cells.Anaphase II occurs in haploid cells.
2.CentromereDuring anaphase I, centromere remains intact while the paired homologous chromosome separates.During anaphase II, centromere separates to pull apart the sister chromatids.

Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To determine: The type of meiotic anaphase which is similar to the mitotic anaphase.

Introduction: In meiosis, the cell division takes place in two rounds: meiosis I and meiosis II. Meiosis I is divided into prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I, telophase I, and cytokinesis. Meiosis II is divided into prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, telophase II, and cytokinesis.
