Cellular reproduction and chromosomes

Cellular Reproduction and Chromosomes

Chapter Five: Cellular Reproduction and Chromosomes

5.1 and 5.2 (5.3 after the last slide)


1 what is the continuous sequence of growth and division known as

1. What is the continuous sequence of growth and division known as?

  • The Cell Cycle

2. True or False? The growth stage is known as Mitosis.

  • False- The growth stage is known as interphase.


3 the division of a cell s nucleus is known as

3. The division of a cell’s nucleus is known as

  • A. Meiosis

  • B. Mitosis

  • C. Metaphase I

  • D. Prophase I

4. What is each chromosome made up of?

  • Two sister chromatids


Cellular reproduction and chromosomes

5. Gametes, either egg or sperm, are ___ which means they contain only one copy of each type of chromosome that the diploid parent cell contains.

  • Haploid


6 give examples of mitosis

6. Give examples of mitosis.

  • When a starfish loses an arm as a result of an attack by a predator, a new arm is regenerated by the process of mitosis.

  • Cells that do not function properly are replaced by mitosis.

  • Cells are replaced when they die through mitosis.


Cellular reproduction and chromosomes

7. True or False? The centromere within the nucleus holds the genetic info needed to maintain the cell and to make new copies of the cell.

  • False- chromosomes

8. What does the centromere do?

  • Holds together the sister chromatids


9 the cell divides to produce two new cells

9. The _____ cell divides to produce two new _____ cells.

  • Parent, daughter

10. How many chromosomes do all human somatic (body) cells have?

  • A. 24

  • B. 21

  • C. 42

  • D. 46


11 what are the four phases of mitosis

11. What are the four phases of mitosis?

  • Prophase

  • Metaphase

  • Anaphase

  • Telophase

12. What happens before mitosis begins?

  • Interphase


13 during which phase of mitosis do the chromatids reach the two opposite poles within the cell

13. During which phase of mitosis do the chromatids reach the two opposite poles within the cell?

  • Telophase (the 4th phase)

14. During which phase of mitosis do the spindle fibres attach to the centromere of the replicated chromosomes?

  • Metaphase (the 2nd phase)


Cellular reproduction and chromosomes

15. During which stage of mitosis does chromatin condense and thicken to form visible duplicated chromosomes?

  • Prophase (the 1st phase)

16. During which phase of mitosis are the chromatids pulled to opposite poles of the cell?

  • Anaphase (the 3rd phase)


17 what is the separation of the cytoplasm and the formation of two new daughter cells called

17. What is the separation of the cytoplasm and the formation of two new daughter cells called?

  • A. Cytokinesis

  • B. Mitosis

  • C. Meiosis

  • D. Genetic Variation


18 what are some of the causes of mutations

18. What are some of the causes of mutations?

  • Various mutagens such as toxic compounds (smoke, chemicals, etc), radiation or viruses

19. What are genes called that can be activated by a mutation?

  • Oncogenes


20 true or false meiosis is a special type of cell division that occurs only in reproductive organs

20. True or False? Meiosis is a special type of cell division that occurs only in reproductive organs.

  • True

21. True or False? The first part of meiosis that reduces the chromosome number from diploid to haploid is known as crossing over.

  • False- Reduction Division


22 how many autosomes and sex chromosomes does each human sperm or egg cell contain

22. How many autosomes and sex chromosomes does each human sperm or egg cell contain?

  • A. 20 autosomes, 2 sex chromosomes

  • B. 24 autosomes, 1 sex chromosome

  • C. 22 autosomes, 1 sex chromosome

  • D. 22 autosomes, 2 sex chromosomes


25 true or false homologous chromosomes are identical

25. True or False? Homologous chromosomes are identical.

  • False- similar but not identical

26. What type of chromatids do not belong to the same chromosome and undergo crossing over?

  • Non-sister chromatids


27 true or false the random positioning of tetrads along the cell s equator is called crossing over

27. True or false?The random positioning of tetrads along the cell’s equator is called crossing over.

  • False – independent assortment

  • True or false?The production of gametesis known as gametogenesis.

  • True


Cellular reproduction and chromosomes
