BIS2C W2011 Lecture 13 Maloof Jan 26, 2010 PERLIMINARY LECTURE OUTLINE--SUBJECT TO CHANGE 1) Eukaryotic sexual life cycles a) reminder: mitosis maintains chromosome number; meiosis reduces chromosome number. i) all eukaryotic sexual life-cycles have two essential components: (1) haplolid gametes fusing to create a diploid (2) meiosis reducing diploid cells to haploids b) "generic" = sporophytic. i) multicellular at both haploid and diploid stages ii) alternation of generations iii) Ulva or plants as an example c) diplontic i) multicellular diploid (humans as an example) d) haplontic i) multicellular haploid (Ulothrix as an example) 2) Quick review: eukaryotic cells 3) Mitochondria a) Function of mitochondria b) Almost all eukaryotes have a mitochondria c) Mitochondria arose by endosymbiosis of a bacteria
