-3 types of cells -mitosis vs meiosis (diploid vs haploid) Meiosis is a specialized cell division process that produces haploid gametes Meiotic cell division occurs in animal ovaries and testes for sexual reproduction to take place Meiotic cell division involves a specialized division called meiosis , and two rounds of cytokinesis Two divisional steps produce four daughter cells that can become gametes Daughter cells are genetically different from the parent cell and from each other Each daughter cell has half the genetic material of the parent cell -chromosome components (allele,loci,centromere) Kaytype,homologues,automes,se chromosomes Mitosis steps:interphase(g1,s,g2) mtitic divison/cytokinesis Meiosis steps: 2 divisons The first division, meiosis I , separates the pairs of homologues, with each daughter nucleus receiving one pair The second division, meiosis II , separates the chromatids and parcels one

Unformatted text preview: chromatid into each of two more daughter nuclei Gist of cloning Cloning – To clone an animal, the chromosomes are removed from a donor egg (haploid à no DNA) – The diploid set of chromosomes from a normal cell is injected into the egg (no DNA à diploid) – The now-diploid egg carries only chromosomes from the donor cell (genetic clone/identical) rather than mixing chromosomes from a sperm and egg Cancer,mutations,carcinogens = uncontrolled cell division due to DNA mutations that cause the cell cycle regulation (checkpoints) to fail – 3 checkpoints means that there must also be multiple DNA mutations to cause them to fail – 2 kinds of cancerous mutations: – Genes that mutate to constantly promote cell division (gas pedal stuck to the floor) – Suppressor genes mutate to be inactive (parking brake is broken)...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
