In telophase, the chromosomes are cordoned off into distinct new nuclei in the emerging daughter cells. The polar fibers continue to lengthen and nuclei begin to form at opposite poles.
At the end of telophase, the genetic content of the cell is divided equally into two parts.
Cytokinesis, the division of the original cell's cytoplasm, begins prior to the end of mitosis and completes shortly after telophase.
At the end of mitosis, two distinct cells with identical genetic material are produced.
