BIO 123 Notes February 3-6 February 3: Chromosomes and Cell Division PPT Terms to know Zygote: We start as a single cell called a zygote. It carries all of the information that we need for life. These cells need to be copied, called mitosis. We have two complete sets when we are made, called diploid. Mitosis: for growth and repair. Every cell it makes is genetically identical. Keeps going throughout life. Meiosis: only used during reproduction to reduce genetic material. Reduced to “n” or haploid, which is one full set of chromosomes. Diploid --> Haploid = meiosis. Fertilization: egg and sperm join together as haploids to create diploid again. Interphase: the first phase of reproducing a cell. G1 phase: taking care of regular cell growth and business. If it gets a trigger, cell division starts S phase: chromosomes replicate. At this phase, DNA is doubled, and starts to shut down and being the process of condensing. When the DNA is doubled, it is called chromatin. G2 phase: recovery phase. Mitosis: four phases Prophase: nuclear membrane begins to breakdown. Chromosomes finish condensing. Metaphase: second phase, chromosomes line up. Anaphase: chromosomes separate Telophase: chromosomes finish separating Cytokinesis: division of cytoplasm Chromosomes: DNA wound around histones Chromatid: one line of the chromosomes (there are 2). What results after chromosome is copied Centromere: what holds the chromosome together Chromatin: uncondensed DNA Feburary 5: Meiosis • Haploid: n, they only have one member of each homogenous pair of chromosomes • Functions of Meiosis (there are 2) o Keeps number of chromosomes in a body cell constant over generations o Increases genetic variability in a population • Preparation for sexual reproduction o Meiosis 1 § Daughter cells receive one of each kind of chromosome o Meiosis II § Chromosomes line up in the center of the cell independently and sister chromatids making up each chromosome separates • Genetic variability o Arises largely because of the shuffling of maternal and paternal forms of genes during meiosis § Crossing over: corresponding pieces of chromatids of maternal and paternal homologues are exchanged during synapsis when they’re lined up side by side § Independent assortment • Extra or missing chromosomes o Nondisjunction: failure of homologous chromosomes to separate during meiosis o Trisomy: when there are three representatives of one chromosome o Turner syndrome: when there is only a single X chromosome
