Activity 3

Mitosis and Asexual Reproduction


Read the introduction
Read the Introduction

  • Asexual reproduction takes only one parent to produce offspring.

  • Mitosis occurs when a single cell divides to produce two identical daughter cells.


Challenge

  • If a genetically modified cell undergoes mitosis, how likely is it that the daughter cells will contain the inserted gene?


As you watch the simulation i n each phase of mitosis note the chromosomes
As you watch the simulation, in each phase of mitosis note the chromosomes’:

  • shape

  • position within the cell

  • movement within the cell



What is the probability that a daughter cell will receive an inserted gene from a genetically modified parent cell that undergoes mitosis?

  • In your discussion include:

    • chromosomes

    • parent cell

    • daughter cell

    • gene


Analysis 3
Analysis 3 inserted gene from a genetically modified parent cell that undergoes mitosis?

  • A friend of yours claims that every genetically modified single-celled organism that reproduces asexually would pass along the inserted gene to its daughter cells. Based on your work in this activity, is that claim valid? Explain.


Revisit the inserted gene from a genetically modified parent cell that undergoes mitosis? Challenge

  • If a genetically modified cell undergoes mitosis, how likely is it that the daughter cells will contain the inserted gene?


Key Vocabulary inserted gene from a genetically modified parent cell that undergoes mitosis?

  • asexual reproduction

  • centrioles

  • centromere

  • chromatid

  • chromosomes

  • cytokinesis

  • daughter cell

  • mitosis

  • parent cell
