1 1/6/11 1. Cell division cycle (CDC) genes: Regulatory genes for kinases (which control the activities of other proteins by phosphorylating them) and cyclins (the kinase binding partners) – together, these regulatory proteins control the passage rate of cells through the cell cycle 2. Chromatin: The substance of a chromosome (i.e., its DNA, protein, and RNA components) during interphase 3. Law of (equal) segregation: Factors (alleles) come in pairs that separate (segregate) into different gametes during meiosis 4. Recombination: Generation of new progeny genotypes/phenotypes from those of their parent’s by segregation/independent assortment (unlinked genes) and crossover (for linked genes) *GENERAL TERMS (that we assume you know: Please refer to your textbook as needed): karyotype, chromosome, gene, allele, diploid (2 n ), haploid ( n ), homologous chromosome (homologue), non- homologous chromosome, chromosome types, genotype, phenotype, heterozygous, homozygous, dominant, recessive, locus, genome
