Meiosis Terms Microtubule - One of three protein components of the cytoskeleton. Long, cylindrical structures approximately 25 nanometers in diameter. Extend from the centrosome to all parts of the cell, forming tracks on which organelles can travel within the cell. Prometaphase 1 - The second stage of the first meiotic division (meiosis I), during which the nuclear envelope breaks down, allowing microtubule access to chromosomes. Prometaphase 2 - The second stage of the second meiotic division (meiosis I), during which microtubules attach to chromosomes. Prophase 1 - The first stage of the first meiotic division (meiosis I), during which genetic reassortment takes place. Can be very long occupying up to 90% of the entire duration of meiosis.

Unformatted text preview: Prophase 2 - The first, brief stage of the second meiotic division (meiosis II), during which condensed chromosomes are visible. Sister chromatid - Refers to the copy of a chromosomes that results from DNA replication and is still closely linked to its original. Somatic cell - Any plant or animal cell that is not a germ cell. The class of cell formed during mitosis. Telophase 1 - The fifth and final stage of the first meiotic division (meiosis I), during which chromosomes arrive at the poles of the cell and begin to recondense. Telophase 2 - The fifth and final stage of the second meiotic division (meiosis II), during which chromosomes arrive at the poles of the cell, the nuclear envelope begins to reform, and the chromosomes begin to recondense....

    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.
