General Biology Study Objective Questions #9 Reading: Raven et. al., Chapter 11 1)The Process of cell division in Prokaryotes involves division by binary fission. This still has the same end result as in eukaryotic cells. The cell first replicates the DNA. This happens at the origin of replication. The enzymes then move to the different poles of the cell until they reach the terminus of replication. The cell is elongated then partitioned. Then a septum is formed at the midpoint of the cell. The cell then pinches off and two daughter cells are formed, both containing the prokaryotic DNA molecule. 2) Chromosome is composed of chromatin. This is 40% DNA and 60% protein. It is a very long double stranded fiber. Diploid (46 chromosomes) double the haploid cell. This shows that there is equal genetic contribution from the father and the mother. Haploid (23 chromosomes)1 complete set of chromosomes. This is ½ of what a human has. (sperm, egg, are haploids)
