Biology 1362- 8:30am TTH SW 102 Doctor Ann Cheek- 2/23/16 Mechanism of Meiosis Meiosis I  Separation of homologous chromosomes during formation of gametes  (Figure)  Replicate everything, separate homologous chromosomes then separate copies in meiosis II Prophase I - Homologous chromosomes held together by synaptonemal complex-proteins - Crossing over- chunks of DNA are swapped between non-sister chromatids o Enzymes cut DNA then after switch, other enzymes glue pieces to other chromosomes o If crossing over happened between sister chromatids, genetic info wouldn’t change - Chiasma (singular)- point t which crossover occurs (pl. chiasmata) - Crossing over during prophase I produces recombinant chromosomes: chromosomes that contain genes from both parents o You mix what your parents gave you TO PASS ON TO OFFSPRING because this is in making gametes - Nuclear envelope breaks down - Spindle forms and microtubules attach to kinetochores Biology 1362- 8:30am TTH SW 102 Doctor Ann Cheek- 2/23/16 Metaphase I - Kinetochores of homologs (1/2 of homologous pair; one of each homologous pair) are attached to microtubules from opposite poles Anaphase I - Homologs separate (but chromatids still together) - Homologs move along spindle to opposite poles Telophase I - 2 haploid nuclei (separate at end of cytokinesis to 2 haploid cells) - 2 sister chromatids per chromosome - Complete haploid set of chromosomes at each pole - Identified as 2 chromosomes because 1 chromosome per cell of each number, 4 unique DNA molecules “That’s info for chromosome 2, but we have 4 different codes for same characters” Cytokinesis - Cytoplasm divides - Result: 2 haploid (1n) daughter cells (Further explanation on pg. 198 of textbook where Meiosis I and II are together) Biology 1362- 8:30am TTH SW 102 Doctor Ann Cheek- 2/23/16 Meiosis II: separation of sister chromatids Prophase II - New spindle forms - Microtubules attach to kinetochores Anaphase II - Chromatids separate and move along spindle to opposite poles Telophase II and Cytokinesis - Nuclear envelope reforms - Chromosomes relax - Each nucleus contains 1 copy of each chromosome - Cytoplasm is divided Group activity Notes: Enucleated egg= egg without a nucleus so sperm is the only one contributing genetic material; because they both were normal, this organism only needs 18 chromosomes to survive (sperm has 18, egg has 18, zygote only needs 18 to survive) Biology 1362- 8:30am TTH SW 102 Doctor Ann Cheek- 2/23/16 Additional notes from textbook: Mitosis Meiosis DNA Replication Interphase- S phase Interphase- S phase Number of divisions 1 2 Synapsis of homologous ---does not occur--- Occurs during prophase I chromosomes along with crossing over between nonsister chromatids Number of daughter cells 2 diploid, clones 4 haploid, each genetically different from parent cell and each other Role in animal body Body cells; epithelium (get Produces gametes; a scratchhealing) introduces genetic variability *MEIOSIS IS FOR GAMETES ONLY NOT BODY CELLS*  decides what offspring will pass on to their offspring \ Genetic variation among offspring occurs because of independent assortment of chromosomes, crossing over, and fertilization
