what events of meiosis 2 are identical to steps in mitosis
Meiosis II is the second part of the meiotic process. Mechanically, the process is similar to mitosis, though its genetic results are fundamentally different. As a result of meiosis is a reduction of the number of chromosomes by 2 times, in the process of mitosis is to save the original number of chromosomes in daughter cells. In prophase II we see condensation of chromosomes, the cell center is divided and products of its divisions diverge to the poles of the nucleus, nuclear envelope breaks down, the same occurs in the prophase of mitosis. Metaphase II, it is phase when chromosomes are univalent (consisting of two chromatids each) are located on the "equator" (the same distance from the "poles" of the nucleus) in the same plane, forming a so-called metaphase plate, the same occurs in the metaphase of mitosis. In anaphase II chromatids univalents divide and migrate to the poles, the same occurs in the anaphase of mitosis.
