tel·o·phase

 (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

(ˈtɛləˌfeɪz)
n
1. (Biology) the final stage of mitosis, during which a set of chromosomes is present at each end of the cell and a nuclear membrane forms around each, producing two new nuclei. See also prophase, metaphase, anaphase
2. (Biology) the corresponding stage of the first division of meiosis
ˌteloˈphasic adj

tel•o•phase

(ˈtɛl əˌfeɪz, ˌti lə-)

n.
the final stage of meiosis or mitosis in cell division, during which the two sets of chromosomes reach opposite poles and nuclei form around them as the cell divides in midsection.
[1895–1900]
tel`o•pha′sic, adj.

tel·o·phase

(tĕl′ə-fāz′)
The final stage of cell division, in which membranes form around the two groups of chromosomes, each at opposite ends of the cell, to produce the two nuclei of the daughter cells. In mitosis, telophase is preceded by anaphase. See more at meiosis, mitosis.

After fertilization, meiosis proceeds to the anaphase and telophase, followed by the release of the polar bodies and the first mitosis (Colas & Dube 1998, Eudeline et al.
After denudation, oocytes were fixed with methanol + acetic acid (3:1) for 48 h at 4[grados]C, stained with 1% solution of lacmoid in 45% glacial acetic acid, evaluated under an optical microscope and classified according to the meiotic stage reached: mature (metaphase II + polar body, telophase I) and immature (anaphase I, metaphase I, chromosomal condensation and germinal vesicle).
In addition, the frequency of chromosomal aberrations is increased, including chromosome bridges and laggard chromosomes and leads to partition-bundle division (a novel type of chromosomal aberration, in which chromosomes at the transition from anaphase to telophase of mitosis are divided into three, four or six bundles) (Rong et al.
It is now well-established that MN mainly originate from acentric chromosome fragments, acentric chromatid fragments or whole chromosomes that fail to be included in the daughter nuclei at the completion of telophase during mitosis because they did not attach properly with the spindle during the segregation process in anaphase [73].
These stages are prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.
Micronuclei are small extra nuclear bodies formed by chromosome fragments or whole chromosome which did not reach spindle poles during mitosis and remained encapsulated at telophase in separate nucleus.
This is explained by the basis of difference in their respective functioning sites; Auxin works on the level of replication in DNA during the prophase, while Cytokinin works in a late phase, at the cytoplasm division during telophase.
