Card Set Information
1-22 of chromosome pairs
Numbers 23 & 24 chromosomes that are X & Y
Protein wrapped around the centromere
Two points of interphase that are periods for growth
G1 and G2
Phase of interphase where there is replication of the DNA.
Average time for cell cycle.
Checkpoint to see if the cell is big enough to go through division.
Checkpoint to see if replication has occurred and can undergo repair mechanisms if their is a problem.
Checkpoint for chromosomal alignment and to see if spindle fibers are attached correctly to the kinectochore
The 3 major events of prophase I and what step is different from regular prophase?
Chromosome condenses and coils.
Homologous pairs line up (different from prophase)
Crossing over occurs
The name of the location where homologous pairs physically touch in prophase I.
Chiasma (Chiasmata) pl.
What 5 features makes a chromosome homologous to another chromosome?
Length of the chromosomes
Same genetic activity potential
Same loci of genes
Diploid organisms only
What are the steps of mitosis?
Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase
If a cell starts interphase with X number of chromosomes and has the same number of daughter cells at the end what process occured?
How are chromosomes arranged during metaphase?
Lined up down the middle of the cell at the kinectochore.
Meiosis I is also known as?
The physical exchange of genetic material and the process it is associated with.
Crossing over that happens during prophase I of meiosis that is responsible for genetic diversity.
Three characteristics of Meiosis II.
Functionality identical to mitosis
Daughter cells are haploid
