Lecture 8: Mitosis and Meiosis Chromosomes  Key features of a Chromosomes -Centromere (spindle attaches) -Telomeres (special structures at ends) -Arms ( bulk of DNA)  Chromosomes come in 2 forms, depending on the stages of cells cycle -Monad (form consists of a single chromatid) a single piece of DNA containing a centromere and telomeres at ends -Dyad (form consists of 2 identical chromatids “sister chromatids”) attached together at the centromere  Chromosomes are in the dyad from before mitosis and in the monad form after mitosis  Dyad form is the result of DNA replication: a single piece of DNA (monad chromosome) replicated to form 2 identical DNA molecules (2 chromatids of the dyad chromosome)  Homologues: two members of a pair of chromosome; Diploid organisms have 2 copies of each chromosome from each parents Haploid number (n): each species has characteristics number of chromosomes Ex] Humans have n=23 (pairs of chromosomes) Drosophila has n=4 (pairs of chromosomes) Cell Cycle  Cell Cycle: theoretical concept that defines the state of all relative to cell division  4 stages: G1, S, G2, M -(M) Mitosis where cells divides into 2 daughter cells. Chromosomes go from dyad (2 chromatid) form to monad (1 chromatid) form -S=DNA synthesis. Chromosomes monad to dyad -G1= Gap. Cells spends most time; Monad chromosomes -G2= Gap. Dyad chromosomes, cell getting ready for mitosis  G1, S, and G2 are collectively called Interphase, time between mitoses Mitosis  Mitosis: ordinary cell division among the cells of body -During mitosis the chromosomes are divided evenly, each of the two daughters cells end up with 1 copy of each chromosomes  Stages: Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase “Prophase” -chromosomes condense -nuclear envelope disappears -centrioles move to opposite ends of cells -Spindle forms “Metaphase” -chromosomes lined up on cell equator, attached to spindle at centromeres “Anaphase” -centromeres divided where chromosomes are monads -monad chromosomes are pulled to opposite poles by spindles “Telophase” -cytokines: cytoplasm divided into 2 separates cells -chromosomes de-condense -nuclear envelopes re-form -spindle vanishes Meiosis  Meiosis: special cell division that converts diploid body cells into haploid gametes (only occurs in specialized cells)  Takes 2 cells division, M1 and M2 with no DNA synthesis between “First Meiotic Division (M1)”  Main event in prophase of M1 is crossing over (also called recombination)  In cross over, homologous chromosomes pair up (synapsis) and exchange segments by breaking and rejoining at identical locations  Several cross over per chromosome with random positons and pairs of homologous chromosomes line up together “Second Meiotic Division (M2)”  Prophase, the chromosomes condense and spindles forms Gametogenesis in Mammals  Gametogenesis: creation of sperm and egg cells from the products of meiosis, through changes in cytoplasm  Sperm production is continuous from puberty until death. All 4 meiotic products remodel their cytoplasm and grow long flag to become spermatozoans or sperm cells  Gametogenesis in Female Mammals -Meiosis resumes after puberty, under hormonal control -After ovulation, the oocyte finishes meiosis 1 -Meiosis 2 only occurs after fertilization Angiosperm Life Cycle  Angiosperm are flowering plants  All eukaryotes alternate between a diploid phase and haploid phase  Plant Diploid Phase= Sporophyte: large visible plant body  Plant Haploid Phase=Gametophyte: lower plants, stage is quite short and small “Angiosperm Gametophytes”  Male gametophytes (pollen grain) consists of 3 haploid nuclei. Nuclei are derived from one haploid meiotic product, by mitosis. Two nuclei are “sperm nuclei” and other control the metabolism of pollen gain  Female gametophytes (ovule) consists of 8 haploid nuclei. These 8 nuclei are derived from one of the meiotic products “Double Fertilization”  All angiosperm undergo double fertilization: major defining characteristic of angiosperms  Pollen grain land on stigma of flower. Germinate a long “pollen tube”, which containing the ovule. The 2 sperm nuclei migrate down the pollen tube into the ovule  Each ovule has a cell at one that is pollinated by one of the sperm nuclei. Fertilized cell is diploid, and it grows into the embryo and ultimately into sporophyte plant body  Pollen gains lands on stigma of flowers, germinates a long “pollen tube”, which contains the ovules. The 2 sperm nuclei migrate down the pollen tube into ovule. “Seed Development”  After fertilization, both embryos and endosperm grow and develop into seed. Resting stage containing multicellular embryo and multicellular endosperm surrounded by protective coat
