an·a·phase

 (ăn′ə-fāz′)
n.
The stage of mitosis and meiosis in which the chromosomes move to opposite ends of the nuclear spindle.

anaphase

(ˈænəˌfeɪz)
n
1. (Biology) the third stage of mitosis, during which the chromatids separate and migrate towards opposite ends of the spindle. See also prophase, metaphase, telophase
2. (Biology) the corresponding stage of the first division of meiosis
[C19: from ana- + phase]

an•a•phase

(ˈæn əˌfeɪz)

n.
the stage in mitosis or meiosis following metaphase in which the chromosomes move away from each other to opposite ends of the cell.
[1885–90]
an`a•pha′sic, adj.

an·a·phase

(ăn′ə-fāz′)
The stage of cell division in which the doubled set of chromosomes separates into two identical groups that move to opposite ends of the cell. In mitosis, anaphase is preceded by metaphase and followed by telophase. See more at meiosis, mitosis.

Non-disjunction and anaphase lag are the two mechanisms causing chromosome segregation in meiosis, primarily the non-disjunction leading to production of aneuploid sperm during spermatogenesis in human (4).
(2015) these types of chromosomal alterations are due to changes in the formation process of spindle fibers, which prevent equatorial plate organizing and chromosomes to be separated correctly during anaphase. That indicates the presence of eugenic substances (Oliveira, Voltolini, & Barberio, 2011), influenced by toxic compounds that had contact with organisms such as heavy metals and agrochemical compounds (Maschio, 2009; Peron, Canesin, & Cardoso, 2009).
The number of cells in the mitotic phases (including the late prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase; n) per total cells (3,000-3,500; C) was determined under light microscope.
At 100-300 kHz, the alternating currents affect the mitotic spindle microtubules resulting in dielectrophoretic movement of molecules during anaphase and telophase, resulting in cellular disruption and apoptosis.
Most bone graft granules used in lumbar posterior pedicle screw fixation with Cage supporting bone graft fusion are cancellous bones which collapse easily when bearing strong strength.11 During bone graft prophase inflammatory reaction as well as anaphase callus reconstruction and remodeling, osteoblasts can absorb necrotic bone and bone tissue outside the stress axis while forming and connecting callus.12 After implantation of large bone granules, considerable gaps are produced during bone granule accumulation and mutual extrusion, causing bone trabecula breakage.
At late anaphase of the first meiosis, two bulges are formed and become two polar bodies that include all chromosomes; however, the process of polar body formation, including the process of meiotic cytokinesis has not been described in detail.
During the second meiotic stages (i.e., prophase II, metaphase II and anaphase II), sex chromosomes were indistinguishable because they were isopycnotic with the autosomes.
Examples of Allium cepa roots cells in normal cell division: (A) interfase; (B) prophase; (C) metaphase; (D) anaphase and (E) telophase at 400x magnification.
At the beginning of anaphase until telophase, we found signals at opposing ends of the dividing chromosome material presumably showing the reformation of the NE (Figure 3(f)).
The observed cells were scored for the different cell division stages (interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase).
