Sexual vs. Asexual Reproduction

  • Sexual:

  • 2 parents

  • Offspring are genetically different from parent – mix of traits

  • Union of egg & sperm

  • Asexual:

  • 1 parent

  • Offspring are identical to parent

  • Binary fission in bacteria

  • Regeneration in worms


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • In sexual reproduction, each parent produces a reproductive cell called a gamete

    • Male gamete – sperm

    • Female gamete – egg

  • Zygote– formed when sperm fertilizes egg

  • Fertilization – process in which sperm and egg fuse together


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Examples of asexual reproduction:

  • Fragmentation – body breaks into several pieces, each of which regrows into an adult

  • Budding – new individuals split off from existing ones

  • Parthenogenesis – a female makes a viable egg that grows into an adult without being fertilized by a male

  • Binary fission – a type of cell division used by prokaryotic cells


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Advantage of sexual reproduction:

  • Produces offspring that are different from their parents so they have a better chance of surviving changes in the environment, diseases, etc.

  • Advantages of asexual reproduction:

  • Simple and efficient

  • No need to find a mate

  • May produce many offspring in a relatively short period of time


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Somatic cells– body cells such as skin, hair, muscle, bones, or organs thatdo no participate in sexual reproduction

Germ cells– cells that are specialized for sexual reproduction, such as eggs or sperm


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Each species has a set number of chromosomes:

    • Humans – 46

    • Crayfish – 200

    • Corn – 20

    • Adder’s tongue fern – 1262

    • Chimpanzee - 48

    • Sand dollar – 52

    • Dog – 78

    • Cat - 32


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Viewing the Chromosomes

  • Karyotype - a photograph of the chromosomes in a dividing cell

    • Shows the gender of the child

    • Shows abnormalities in chromosome number or structure.

  • Humans have 23 pairs of homologous chromosomes(chromosomes with the same genes; similar in size and shape), or 46 chromosomes total.

    • You get 1 of each chromosome from mom, and 1 from dad.


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Of the 23 pairs of chromosomes:

    • 1 pair aresex chromosomes– determine your gender; may determine other traits as well

      • Females are XX

      • Males are XY

    • 22 pairs areautosomes– all other pairs of chromosomes; do NOT determine gender


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • How is karyotyping done?

  • Cells are taken from the fetus of a pregnant woman

  • Chemicals added to the cells make them divide

  • Another chemical stops division at the midpoint

  • The stained cells are photographed and can be paired based on cross-bands, size, and shape.

Human karyotype preparation


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Normal male karyotype


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Down syndrome karyotype


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Body cells contain the diploid(2n) number of chromosomes – contain2 chromosomes of each kind (1 from each parent)

  • Sex cells (eggs and sperm) contain only 1 chromosome of each kind – haploid(1n) number of chromosomes


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Meiosis– form of cell division tha produces

  • daughter cells with half the number of

  • chromosomes that are in the parent

  • Produces sex cells (gametes)

    • Female gamete –egg

    • Male gamete - sperm

  • Reduces the chromosome number

    • Egg or sperm cells each have only one of each kind of chromosome

    • Diploid cells (2n)  haploid cells (1n)


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Overview of meiosis

http://www.cellsalive.com/meiosis.htm


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Meiosis involves two cell divisions (meiosis I and II)

  • Produces four haploid cells.


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Meiosis I

  • Original cell produces 2 new cells

  • Splits homologous chromosomes so that each new cell has 1 chromosome from each homologous pair

  • Diploid cells (2n) create haploid cells (1n)

  • Crossing over (chromosomes exchange genetic material) can occur


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Meiosis II

  • Each of the 2 cells made in meiosis I splits

  • 2 haploid cells divide to make 4 haploid cells

  • Chromatids of chromosomes are separated

  • Errors in meiosis can result in missing or extra chromosomes


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Changes in Chromosome Number

  • Occurs when:

    • In meiosis I, homologous pair both go into the same daughter cell or

    • In meiosis II, the sister chromatids both go into the same gamete.

  • The result is either:

    • Trisomy(3 copies of a single chromosome)

    • Monosomy (1 copy of a single chromosome)


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Nondisjunction in meiosis I


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Nondisjunction in meiosis II


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Types of chromosomal mutations:

  • Deletion – a piece of a chromosome is lost

  • Duplication – a chromosome with a repeated section attached

  • Inversion –a section of chromosome is flipped in the reverse direction

  • Translocation – a chromosome piece ends up on another non-homologous chromosome

  • Gene rearrangement – an entire gene moves to a different location on the same chromosome


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Ex. of deletion: Williams syndrome

    • Chromosome 7 loses an end piece

    • Children have a pixie look (turned-up noses, wide mouth, small chin, large ears)

    • Poor academic skills, good verbal and musical abilities

    • Skin ages prematurely from lack of the gene that controls the production of elastin (also affects cardiovascular health).


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Ex of duplication: An inverted duplication in chromosome 15 causes inv dup 15 syndrome

    • Poor muscle tone, mental retardation, seizures, curved spine, and autistic characteristics


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Duplication


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Ex of translocation: Alagille syndrome results from a deletion of chromosome 20 or a translocation that disrupts an allele on chromosome 20.

  • The symptoms for Alagille syndrome range from mild to severe, so people may not be aware they have the syndrome.

  • Distinctive face, abnormalities of eyes & internal organs, and severe itching.


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Translocation


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Meiosis in males vs. females:

  • Males:

    • Occurs in testes

    • Spermatogenesis

    • Makes 4 haploid sperm

  • Females:

    • Occurs in ovaries

    • Oogenesis

    • Makes 1 large egg & 3polar bodies(that die) – cells divide unevenly


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Spermatogenesis


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Oogenesis


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Meiosis vs. Mitosis

  • Mitosis

  • Body cells

  • Diploid cells make diploid cells

  • End result 2 cells

  • No variation in cells produced

  • Meiosis

  • Sex cells

  • Diploid cells make haploid cells

  • End result up to 4 cells

  • Cells made are different from parent


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

Meiosis compared to mitosis


Chapter 11 meiosis and sexual reproduction

  • Cloning: Produces an organism that is genetically identical to the parent

  • Steps:

    • DNA is removed from a fertilized egg

    • Fertilized egg cell is fused with cell of individual being cloned

    • Egg with new DNA is implanted into a woman
