5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Ovulation and Menopause
  2. Gametes
  3. Female Reproductive Anatomy
  4. Meiosis
  5. Budding
  1. a - replication of the nucleus followed by unequal cytokinesis
    - the cell membrane pinches inward to form a new cell that is smaller in size but genetically identical to the parent cell
    - can grow to an adult size
    - new cell may separate immediately from the parent or remain attached to it
    - occurs in hydra and yeast
  2. b - sperm and egg
    - produced in gonads
  3. c - once a month, an immature ovum is released from the ovary into the abdominal cavity and drawn into the nearby fallopian tube
    - inner surface of the fallopian tube is lined with cilia that move the ovum into and along the tube and toward the uterus
    - mammalian female's reproductive and excretory systems are distinct from one another (urethra and vagina aren't connected)
  4. d - only occurs in the sex cells
    - meiosis I produces two intermediate daughter cells
    - meiosis II is similar to mitosis, it separates sister chromatids and results in four genetically distinct haploid gametes
  5. e - women ovulate about once every four weeks
    - menapause occurs between age 45 and 50
    - during menopause, ovaries become less sensitive to the hormones that stimulate follicle development (FSH and LH), and eventually they atrophy
    - remaining follicles disappear, estrogen and progesterone levels greatly decline and ovulation stops

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. - intense biochemical activity and growth
    - cell doubles in size and new organelles are produced
    - passing "restriction point", where a cell is committed to continue through the rest of the cell cycle and divide
    - some cells like skeletal muscle cells and nerve cells never pass this point, and enter a nondividng phase sometimes referred to as G₀
    - 2N number of chromosomes
  2. - site of sperm deposition during intercourse
    - passageway through which a baby is expelled during childbirth
  3. - outer layer of the oocyte cell membrane
  4. - development of an unfertilized egg into an adult organism
    - occurs naturally in certain lower organisms (bees and ants, some salamander)
    - eggs of some organisms can be induced to develop parthenogenetically (not done naturally)
    - since the organism develops from a haploid cell, all of its cells will be haploid
  5. - hard layer that surrounds the ovum cell membrane
    - prevents multiple fertilizations

5 True/False questions

  1. Epididymuswhere sperm acquire motility and stored here till ejaculation

          

  2. Anaphase- disjunction: homologous pairs separate and are pulled to opposite poles of the cell
    - distribution of homologous chromosomes to intermediate daughter cells are random

          

  3. Metaphase- homolgous pairs (tetrads) align at the equatorial plane
    - each pair attaches to a separate spindle fiber by its kinetochore

          

  4. S Stage (synthesis)- mitosis: division and distribution of the cell's DNA to its two daughter cells such that each cell receives a complete copy of the original genome
    - cytokinesis: division of cytoplasm that follows
    - happens on somatic cells only
    - 2N --> 2N (ends up with two diploid cells)

          

  5. Reproduction- the regrowth of a lost or injured body part
    - replacement of cells occurs by mitosis
    - ex: hydra and starfish
    - in higher animals, regeneration is usually limited to the healing of tissues
    - some internal organs (liver) can regenerate considerably as long as part of the organ remains viable
