Meiosis: Anaphase I

The chromosomes that make up each tetrad separate during anaphase I. However, the sister chromatids will stay connected at the centromere. Anaphase I proceeds until the chromosomes are pulled into a bundle at opposite ends of the cell.

The tetrads are separated during anaphase I. While metaphase looked like sets of x's aligned along the center line of the cell, anaphase I clearly shows the sets of x's being separated into single x's at opposite sides of the cell.
telophase I results in two cells with the number of replicated chromosomes. A nucleus begins to slightly reform around the chromosomes.
