Meiosis

Meiosis

Formation of Sex Cells


Meiosis1
Meiosis

  • A process of reduction division in which the number of chromosomes per cell is cut in half through the separation of homologous chromosomes in a diploid cell.

  • Diploid – 2 sets of chromosomes

  • Haploid – 1 set of chromosomes

  • Homologous – chromosomes that each have a corresponding chromosome from the opposite sex parent



Meiosis stages
Meiosis Stages

  • Meiosis usually involves 2 distinct stages

    • Meiosis I

    • Meiosis II


Prophase i
Prophase I

  • Each chromosome pairs with its corresponding homologous chromosome to form a tetrad.

  • Each tetrad is made of 2 chromosomes, each with a copy attached forming sister chromatids

  • The pairing of homologous chromosomes is the key to understanding meiosis.

  • Crossing-over may occur here

  • Crossing-over is when chromosomes overlap and exchange portions of their chromatids.

Metaphase i
Metaphase I

  • Spindle fibers attach to the chromosomes

Anaphase i
Anaphase I

  • The fibers pull the homologous chromosomes toward opposite ends of the cell.

  • Notice that in anaphase I the sister chromatids remain attached at their centromeres and move together toward the poles.

  • A key difference between mitosis and meiosis is that sister chromatids remain joined after metaphase in meiosis I, whereas in mitosis they separate.

Telophase i
Telophase I

  • A nuclear envelope reforms around each chromosome set, the spindle disappers, and cytokinesis follows.

Cytokinesis
Cytokinesis

  • Cytokinesis is not one of the stages or phases of meiosis or mitosis. It is the process of division that the cytoplasm undergoes when it is distributed into daughter cells

  • In animal cells, cytokinesis involves the formation of a cleavage furrow, resulting in the pinching of the cell into two cells.

  • After cytokinesis, each of the two progeny cells has a nucleus with a haploid set of replicated chromosomes.



Prophase ii
Prophase II

  • Meiosis I results in two haploid (N) cells.

  • Each cell has half the number of chromosomes as the original cell.

  • There is no DNA replication between the two cell divisions.

  • The nuclear envelope breaks down, and the spindle apparatus forms.


Prophase ii1
Prophase II

Metaphase ii
Metaphase II

  • The chromosomes line up similar to metaphase in mitosis.

Anaphase ii
Anaphase II

  • Sister chromatids separate and move to opposite ends of the cell.

Telophase ii
Telophase II

  • Meiosis II results in 4 haploid cells (gametes in animals)

  • Because of crossing-over, some chromosomes are seen to have recombined segments of the original parental chromosomes.

Gamete formation
Gamete Formation

  • In males, meiosis results in 4 sperm cells

  • In females, meiosis results in 1 egg cell and three polar bodies, which are not used in reproduction.
