Meiosis and Sexual Life Cycles

genetics scientific study of heredity and inherited variation
genes offspring with coded information in the form of hereditary units
gametes reproductive cells
asexual reproduction a single individual is the sole parent and passes copies of all its genes to its offspring without the fusion of gametes
clone a group of genetically identical individuals
homologous chromosomes carrying genes controlling same inherited characteristics
haploid cells single set of chromosomes; 23
fertilization union of gametes,culminating in fusion of their nuclei
what cells can undergo meiosis? diploid
Meiosis I main function separates homologous chromosomes
What stages are in Meiosis I? -Prophase I -Metaphase I -Anaphase I -Telophase I and Cytokinesis
Prophase I -centrosome movement, spindle formation -cross over: nonsister chromatids are broken and rejoined
Metaphase I -arranged homologous chromsomes, one pair facing each pole
Anaphase I -protein breakdown -homologs move opposite poles
Telophase I and Cytokinesis -haploids -cleavage furrow
Meiosis II main function separate sister chromatids
What stages are in Meiosis II? -Prophase II -Metaphase II -Anaphase II -Telophase II & Cytokinesis
Prophase II -form spindle apparatus
Metaphase II Metaphase plate
Anaphase II protein breakdown, allow chromatids to separate
Telophase II and Cytokinesis chromosomes begin decondensing , nuclei form
