AMOEBA SISTERS: VIDEO RECAP MEIOSISAmoeba Sisters Video Recap of Meiosis 1. The purpose of meiosis is to makegametes, also known as sperm and eggcells. In humans, your body cells have 46chromosomes. How many chromosomesare in a sperm or egg cell if, when theycome together to form a fertilized zygote,there are 46 chromosomes? Write thecorrect number of chromosomes next tothe sperm and egg.2.Interphase must occur once beforemeiosis can happen. (Same thing formitosis). What would happen ifinterphase didn’t occur first?3. A cell that begins meiosis has 23chromosomes inherited from the mother(shown in green in the cartoon below)and 23 chromosomes inherited from thefather (shown in blue in the cartoonbelow). In the process of meiosis,chromosomes begin to match up inhomologous pairs. How would you knowif two chromosomes were homologous?4.Crossing over is a very important eventin Prophase I of meiosis! What happensduring crossing over and what is thesignificance?
