5 Matching questions

  1. Stages of Mitosis
  2. Interphase
  3. Female Reproductive Anatomy
  4. Epididymus
  5. Metaphase I
  1. a - homolgous pairs (tetrads) align at the equatorial plane
    - each pair attaches to a separate spindle fiber by its kinetochore
  2. b where sperm acquire motility and stored here till ejaculation
  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 PMAT:
    a) Prophase
    b) Metaphase
    c) Anaphase
    d) Telophase
  5. e - the longest part of the cell cycle
    - a cell normally spends at least 90% of the cycle in interphase

    - spindle apparatus forms
  2. - external female genitalia
  3. - the first time a female gets her period
  4. - site of sperm deposition during intercourse
    - passageway through which a baby is expelled during childbirth
  5. - outer layer of the oocyte cell membrane

5 True/False questions

  1. Ovulation and Menopause- 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


  2. Cytokinesis- production of female gametes
    - occurs in the ovarian follicles
    - one primary oocyte completes meiosis I per month after menarche
    - yields two secondary oocyte and a polar body
    - secondary oocyte is expelled from the follicle during ovulation
    - meiosis II doesn't occur till fertilization


  3. Spermatozoa- spermatids after a series of changes, becomes a mature sperm
    - mature sperm is an elongated cell with a head, neck, body and tail
    - head consists almost entirely of the nucleus
    - tail (flagellum) propels the sperm
    - mitochondria in the neck and body provide energy for locomotion


  4. Fertilization- a process where a cell doubles its organelles and cytoplasm, replicates its DNA and then divides in two
    - unicellular organism: reproduction
    - multicellular organism: growth, development & replace old cells


  5. Cervix- lower, narrow end of the uterus
    - connects with the vaginal canal
