    Meiosis reductiodivision Meiosis reductiodivision Presentation Transcript

    • Reduction-DivisionGenetic Recombination 1
    •  The form of cell division by which GAMETES, with HALF the number of CHROMOSOMES, are produced. DIPLOID (2n) → HAPLOID (n) Meiosis is SEXUAL reproduction. TWO divisions (MEIOSIS I and MEIOSIS II). II 2
    •  Sex cells divide to produce GAMETES (sperm or egg). egg) Gametes have HALF the # of chromosomes. Occurs only in GONADS (testes or ovaries). Male: SPERMATOGENESIS -sperm Female: OOGENESIS - egg or ova 3
    • n=23 human sex cell sperm n=23 n=23 2n=46 n=23diploid (2n) n=23 haploid (n) n=23 Meiosis I Meiosis II 4
    • Haploid n=23 (1n) human egg sex cell n=23 2n=46 Polar Bodies (die)diploid (2n) n=23 Meiosis I Meiosis II 5
    •  Similar to mitosis interphase. CHROMOSOMES (DNA) replicate in the S phase Each duplicated chromosome consist of two identical SISTER CHROMATIDS attached at their CENTROMERES. CENTROMERES CENTRIOLE pairs also replicate. 6
    •  Nucleus and nucleolus visible. Nucleus chromatin cellmembrane nucleolus 7
    •  Cell division that reduces the chromosome number by one-half. Four phases: phases a. Prophase I b. Metaphase I c. Anaphase I d. Telophase I Prophase I 8
    •  Longest and most complex phase (90%). Chromosomes condense. Synapsis occurs - Homologous chromosomes come together to form a tetrad. tetrad Tetrad is two chromosomes or four chromatids (sister and non-sister chromatids). 9
    • •Homologs contain DNAthat codes for the samegenes , but differentversions of those genes•Genes occur at the sameloci 10
    • Homologous chromosomes Tetradsister chromatids sister chromatids 11
    •  Pair of chromosomes (maternal and paternal) paternal that are similar in shape and size. Homologous pairs (tetrads) carry GENES controlling the SAME inherited traits. traits Each locus (position of a gene) is in the LOCI same position on homologues. Humans have 23 pairs of homologous chromosomes: a. First 22 pairs of autosomes b. Last pair of sex chromosomes 12

    •  Crossing over may occur between non- sister chromatids at sites called chiasmata. chiasmata Crossing over: segments of nonsister over chromatids break and reattach to the other chromatid. chromatid Chiasmata (chiasma) are where chromosomes touch each other and exchange genes (crossing over.) over Causes Genetic Recombination 14
    • nonsister chromatids Tetrad chiasmata: site variation of crossing over 15
    • 16
    • XX chromosome - female XY chromosome - male 17
    • Meiosis I Homologs separate 18
    • • Nucleus & Nucleolus disappear• Spindle forms• Chromosomes coil & Synapsis (pairing) occurs• Tetrads form & Crossing over Occursspindle fiber centrioles aster fibers TETRAD 19
    •  Shortest phase Tetrads align on the equator. Independent assortment occurs – chromosomes separate randomly causing GENETIC RECOMBINATION 20
    • ORHomologs line up at equator or metaphase plate 21
    •  Formula: 2n Example: 2n = 4 then 1n = 2 thus 22 = 4 combinations 22
    •  In terms of Independent Assortment -how many different combinations of sperm could a human male produce? 23
    •  Formula: 2n Human chromosomes: 2n = 46 n = 23 223 = ~8 million combinations 24
    •  Homologous chromosomes separate and move towards the poles. Sister chromatids remain attached at their centromeres. centromeres 25
    • Homologs separate 26
    •  Each pole now has haploid (1n) set of chromosomes. chromosomes Cytokinesis occurs and two haploid daughter cells are formed. 27
    • cytokinesis 28
    • SisterMeiosis II Chromatids Separate 29
    •  No Interphase II or very short No DNA Replication Remember: Meiosis II is similar to mitosis 30
    •  Same as Prophase in mitosis  Nucleus & nucleolus disappear  Chromosomes condense  Spindle forms 31
    •  Same as Metaphase in mitosisChromosomes (not homologs) line up at equator 32
    •  Same as Anaphase in mitosis SISTER CHROMATIDS separate 33
    •  Same as Telophase in mitosis. Nuclei and Nucleoli reform, spindle disappears CYTOKINESIS occurs. Remember: FOUR HAPLOID DAUGHTER cells are produced. Called GAMETES (eggs and sperm) 1n Sperm cell fertilizes 1n egg to form 2n zygote 34

    •  Also known as GENETIC RECOMBINATION Important to population as the raw material for NATURAL SELECTION. All organisms are NOT alike Strongest “most fit” survive to reproduce & pass on traits 37
    •  What are the 3 sources of genetic recombination or variation? 38
    • 1. CROSSING OVER (prophase I)2. INDEPENDENT ASSORTMENT (metaphase I)3. RANDOM FERTILIZATION 39
    •  A cell containing 20 chromosomes (diploid) at the beginning of meiosis would, at its completion, produce cells containing how many chromosomes? chromosomes 40
    •  10 chromosomes (haploid or 1n) 41
    •  An organized picture of the chromosomes of a human arranged in pairs by size from largest to smallest. Pairs 1-22 called AUTOSOMES Last pair are SEX Male - XY CHROMOSOMES 42
    • Female - XX 43
    • Down Syndrome – Trisomy 21 Female - XX 44
    •  The fusion of a sperm and egg to form a zygote. zygote A zygote is a FERTILIZED EGG sperm n=23 n=23 egg 2n=46 zygote 45
    •  A cell containing 40 chromatids at the beginning of meiosis would, at its completion, produce cells containing how many chromosomes? chromosomes 46
    •  10 chromosomes 47
