Descent with Modification -cells will replicate themselves; the processes Mitosis WHY? [ Bacterial ] Steps: - replication Signal - Replicate the DNA - Segregate - e the two copies of DNA - Cytokinesis 1. Begin replication of DNA (ori); origin of replication How does a bacterial cell increase in size? - water; osmotic process. Concentration of water in the cell > environment 2. Segregate the copies of the DNA bw the emerging offspring cells 3. Cytokinesis offspring= identical to the parents (Eukaryotes) - DNA duplexes are called chromosomes (DNA/protein complex) - chromosome is also called chromatin (rod-shaped) - HOMOLOGOUS CHROMOSOME (humans) - humans have 23 set of homologous chromosome. one set from paternal the other from maternal Homologous chromosome s are: - 2 chromosomes that contain genes for the same traits > one pair maternal, the other paternal - Alleles are tow genes in a pair of HC that code for the same trait GENES/ CHROMOSOMES/ ALLELES - chromosomes contain the blueprint for a cell - your 46 chromosomes contain the blueprint for an entire organism - How is genetic info passed on from cell to cell within an organism? > Mitosis (all cells can do mitosis) - how is genetic info passed on from organism to organism within a species? > Meiosis (only cells that are meant to be gamete cells do meiosis) Feature of a cell prior to mitosis - chromosomes I'm the nucleus - centrosome and centrioles - events in the mitochondrion( when cells divide, equal amount of mitochondrion; duplicating mitochondria CELL CYCLE - major divisions: • Interphase • M Phase after cell devision, the cell enters interphase; - stages within interphase • G1; reaches restriction point: decision that a cell makes, once they cross the line, continuous towards mitosis(some cells never reach that point) • S; chromosomes are duplicated, each duplicate DNA is unwinding • Once chromosomes are duplicated, G2 - Chromosomes become condensed - centrosome splits, releasing two centrioles (: a microtubule organizing center) (BOARD PIC) Stages of Mitosis 1. Prophase 2. Pro metaphase 3. Metaphase (shortest stage in terms of time in mitosis) 4. Anaphase 5. Telophase Nuclear envelope dissolves; G2-Centrioles separate and Spindle apparatus forms move to opposite ends of prometaphase- begin the cell -duplicated chromosome, lines up in the middle; as soon as it happens, metaphase is over then to Anaphase -one copy being pulled to one side and the other copy to the other sides = chromatids separate and are pulled to the centrosomes when the reach the app sides of the cell, enters Telophase -nuclear envelope has reformed, beings the process of cytokinesis 2 sets of homologous chromosomes : diploid total # of chromosomes: 4 Note the two chromatids for each duplicated chromosome Nuclear env is gone, spindle apparatus is forming 
 Cells that is dicing out of control : cancer cell What do cancer cells create? > a tumor benign- grow to a certain size and stops Cell that continuously secretes a protein : cancer cell Could a cell divide out of control and be secreting a protein out of control? > YES Observations - somatic cells perform mitosis - Precursor gamete cells perform mitosis(how they multiply) gametes? > specialized cells that are used in sexual reproduction In humans: the sperm cell and the ovum Mature gamete have one set of homologous chromosome How does a somatic cells differ from a mature gamete cell? - Ploidy (# of copies of homologous chromosomes Number of complete set of chromosome in a cell Haploid vs. Diploid 1N vs. 2N MEIOSIS I 
 Interphase (2N) Prometaphase 1 - no nuclear env - spindle apparatus formed metaphase 1 (4N) duplicated large chromosome from paternal origin is facing the maternal: synapse DIFF than mitosis FUNDAMENTAL difference bw mitosis > have not made a mature gamete yet. cytokinesis 1 Two(2N) cells MEIOSIS II if this was human, there would be 23 in each one Spermatogenesis - made in testes, in third trimester spermatogonia- constantly replaced over the years - DNA duplication (spermatogonium to spermatocyte) - meiosis does not begin until puberty
 2N - not viable gametes - bc need to go under second meiotic division Mature state Oogenesis in utero all oogonia move to ovulates at age 40, primary oocyte - 40, spindle apparatus - 40 primacy oocyte; stops at prometaphase in the fallopian tube moving to uterus 2N 2N Cross over during meiosis (@synapse) - synapse - crossover - real - re-anneal Non-Disjunction Mutations - chromosome 21 - down syndrome (extra chromosome) • XXX - sterile Female > not lethal, interferes with proper development of female reproductive system • XXY - Sterile Male (Klinefelter Syndrome • __Y - nonviable • X__ - sterile female (Turner Syndrome -> can grow to maturely, but problems with reproductive • XYY - fertile Male (Jacob Syndrome) Gregor Mendel - inheritance - gardening peas Genetics is the study of inheritance of biological traits pass on from generation to generation Observation: within a species offspring tend to resemble the parents Initial theory: > blending: gametes have heritable determinants that blend together in the offspring > particulate inheritance: each determinate had a physically distinct nature OBSERVATIONS: - some pea plants produce smooth round seeds - other peas plants have sprinkled round seeds (rough skin) - if blending is correct, then the seeds of the offspring should be a mic of patches of sooth areas and wrinkled areas > first generation: all the seeds are smooth; no apparent blending > when he crosses F1, F2 > F2: 1/4 seeds are wrinkled (particulate theory determinants within organisms that are dominant, and determinants that are recessive. ; wrinkles: recessive MONOHybrid cross -the plants are diploid -there should be a trait of paternal origin and a trait of maternal origin -One that is dominant (smooth surface) -recessive ( wrinkled ) How were the genes for seed shaped sorted? - by the law of segregation look at gametes of the F1 generation 1) alternative versions of genes account for citations in inherited traits - alleles 2) For each character, an organism inherits 2 copies of a gene, one from each parent Mendel had to do a test cross to establish that he had • a homozygous dominant plant DIHYBRID CROSS Characters Traits - Seed shape: S- smooth, s- wrinkled - color: Y- yellow, y- green > alleles for seed colors were in a different homologous site - dealing with two sets of homologous chromosomes ( seed shape; pheno: smooth dominant, seed color; pheno: yellow dominant) - duplicate of paternal and maternal homologous chromosomes menders law of independent assortment - the side that chromosomes end up on is chance - 9: 3: 3: 1 9 - dominant 3 - dominant for surface, recessive color 3 - recessive for surface, dominant color 1 - recessive Sex-linked traits in humans - dominant and recessive alleles - the ability for blood to clot quickly is a dominant - the inability for blood to clot quickly is recessive (Hemophilia)
