1/21/16 Meiosis II Meiosis II • Same steps as mitosis but chromosomes have been through crossing over. • End product is four haploid cells, instead of the two that result from meiosis I. Prophase II • Chromatin re-condenses into chromosomes. o At the end of meiosis I, chromosomes unwind into chromatin and then in prophase II it recondenses. Inefficient? Evolution doesn’t do things to be perfect, it just does what it does. • Nuclear envelope starts to break down. • Spindle fibers start to form. • Chromosomes have two chromatids attached at the centromere. • Distinguished from prophase I by lack of tetrads and from prophase by evidence of crossing over. • Metaphase II • Chromosomes aligned on metaphase plate. • Each chromatid faces the opposite pole. • Spindle fibers attached at centromere. • Distinguished from metaphase II by lack of tetrads, and from metaphase I by evidence of crossing over. • Anaphase II • Spindle fibers are pulling chromatids apart [sister chromatids are separated] and toward opposite poles. • Distinguished from anaphase I by single chromatid, and from anaphase by evidence by evidence of crossing over. • Telophase II & Cytokinesis • Nuclear envelope reforms. • Chromatids start to decondense into chromatin. • At cytokinesis, each daughter cell from me iosis I splits into two. • Each new daughter cell is haploid, this time with no sister chromatids. • Each new daughter cell is unique [different from others and from parent cell]. • 4 haploid cells are the result of meiosis. • Spermatogenesis: Formation of sperm, occurs in testes. • The acrosome on the tip of the head of sperm, contains enzymes to make a hole in the egg. • The midsection is full of mitochondria. • One sperm is one cell. • • Oogenesis • Formation of ova (eggs) → More complicated than spermatogenesis. • Every division results in a tiny, useless cell called a polar body. • Only one egg is actually made from oogenesis. • You end up with one that’s bigger and functional and a few little polar bodies that are “just there.” • The polar bodies are reabsorbed/recycled. • REVIEW & be familiar with the differences!
