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.

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.
Nuclear maturation was evaluated without knowing the treatment groups by an independent evaluator and classified as germinal vesicle (GV), germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD), metaphase I (M I) (including anaphase I and telophase I), metaphase II (M II) as described by Cevik et al [2].
At telophase, the actin signal around the actin-poor region became more intense and formed clear rings.
Examples of Allium cepa roots cells in normal cell division: (A) interfase; (B) prophase; (C) metaphase; (D) anaphase and (E) telophase at 400x magnification.
They can be formed from eccentric chromosomes, chromatid fragments, whole chromosomes, or chromatids that lag behind in anaphase and are left outside the daughter nuclei in telophase. [11]
However, some overlap indicating a colocalization could be seen particularly in telophase (see below, Figures 5(a) and 5(b), upper panels; see telophases of control cells for overlap).
The observed cells were scored for the different cell division stages (interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase).
Cells were observed in interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. For calculation of the mitotic index (MI), we used the following equation: (total number of cells in mitosis total number of cells analyzed) x 100.
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).
