The sequence of events associated with normal cell division in mitosis.
Structures associated with each phase.
Interphase: G1, S and G2. Describe each.
Explain how asexual reproduction (mitosis) produces new cells with
identical chromosomes.
5. Mitotic division of a diploid cell results in __________.
6. Explain cytokinesis. How does it occur in an animal cell? Plant cell?
7. What is the chromosome number for somatic cells? Are somatic cells
diploid or haploid?
8. During meiotic (meiosis) cell division of a diploid cell, the change in
chromosome number that occurs is represented as 2n
9. The sequence of events associated with normal cell division in meiosis.
10.Define each term and when it occurs in meiosis: synapsis, tetrad, crossing
over, and disjunction.
11.Compare/contrast mitotic and meiotic cell divisions.
12.Define: diploid, haploid, homologous chromosomes, sister chromatids,
centromere, gametes, zygote, fertilization, spermatogenesis, oogenesis,
13.After gametogenesis takes place, which process restores the diploid
chromosomes number of the species?
14.A cell containing 92 chromatids at the start of mitosis would, at its
completion, produce cells containing how many chromosomes?
15.The gamete number is 4 for a specific species. What would be the
chromosome number for the gamete produced by this organism?
