Is the step interphase I after prophase I in meiosis I?
No. Prophase I means prophase of the first division of meiosis. It is followed by metaphase I, anaphase I, and telophase I. Likewise the second division consists of prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, and telophase II.
Interphase is just plain interphase: no I or II, as it is not part of any division, but the stage between divisions.
How is interphase two of meiosis different from interphase of mitosis and interphase one of meiosis?
Interkinesis or interphase II is a period of rest that cells enter during meiosis. It is the abbreviated interphase that occurs between meiosis I and II. No DNA replication occurs during this stage of Meiosis. Many plants skip telophase I and interkinesis, going immediately into prophase II. Each chromosome is still composed of two chromatids.
The first step is interphase( where DNA is duplicated), The next step is Prophase( where chromosomes are visible), next theres Metaphase(where chromosomes gather), After that is Anaphase(where chromatids seperate), and the last steps are Telephase and Cytokinesis(the processes of prophase are revealed). And the cycle continues!
