Chapter 8 Outline(s) and Questions for Review Outline Chapter 8: The Cellular Basis of Reproduction and Inheritance Part One 1. Binary Fisson -A means of sexual reproduction in which a parent organism, often a single cell, divides into two individuals of about equal size. 1.) As the chromosomes is duplicating one copy moves toward the opposite end of the cell. 2.) Meanwhile, as chromosome duplication progresses the cell elongates. 3.) When chromosome duplication is complete and the bacterium has reached about twice it's initial size the plasma membrane grows inward, dividing the parent cell into two daughter cells. 2. Asexual Reproduction -The creation of offspring by a single parent without the participation of sperm and egg. 3. The Cell Cycle - An ordered sequence of events (including interphase and the mitotic phase) that extends from the time a eukaryotic cell is first formed from a dividing parent cell until its own divisions into two cells 4. The Steps in Mitosis- Interphase , most of the cell cycle is spent in interphase. This is a time when a cells metabolic activity is very high and the cell performs its various functions within the organism. A cell in interphase increases its its supply of proteins creates more cytoplasmic organelles (such as mitochondria and ribosomes), and grows in size. Chromosomes duplicate in this period.
