Where does oogenesis occur?
Two identical copies of the same chromosome are called
The mode of cell division that results in the formation of daughter cells that are genetically identical to the original cell is called
T/F: A cell with 12 pairs of homologous chromosomes is said to be diploid, 2n
T/F: From one original cell, four genetically unique daughter cells, each with 23 nonreplicated chromosomes, are produced at the conclusion of meiosis II of spermatogenesis.
T/F: Testosterone is made by the myoid cells of the male testes.
T/F: During an erection, blood from the testicular arteries fills the vascular spaces of the corpus spongiosum of the penis.
T/F: The prostate gland releases clotting proteins into ejaculated semen which cause coagulation and temporarily prevents the sperm from leaking back out of the female reproductive tract.
T/F: During cold temperatures, the testes are pulled closer to the pelvic floor and the warmth of the body wall, and the scrotum becomes shorter and heavily wrinkled.
T/F: Spermiogenesis is the process of sperm cell development. It includes all phases of meiosis and spermatogenesis, the cytoplasmic changes required to form a mature sperm cell.
T/F: high levels of testosterone inhibit gonadotropin-releasing hormone (gnrh) by the hypothalamus
T/F: The round ligaments connect each ovary to the uterus and receive an oocyte during ovulation.
T/F: The uterus is anchored by the broad ligament, suspensores ligament, and the round ligament.
Which of the following is true about oogenesis?
It releases an immature gamete each month.
What stem cell begins the process of spermatogenesis?
Which of the following is the main hormone that regulates spermatogenesis?
What is the maturation process in which spermatids elongate and shed excess cytoplasm?
A male bodybuilder takes testosterone supplements to increase his muscle mass. After three weeks, which of the following do you expect to observe?
Excess testosterone inhibits production of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH).
A seventy-five year old male has noticed he has had difficulty urinating. His physician says his difficulty is most likely due to an enlarged gland know as the:
What is/are the primary sex organs in females?
Where does fertilization usually occur?
ampulla of the uterine tube
What portion of the uterus is composed of smooth muscle and contracts rhythmically during orgasm and childbirth?
T/F: During the luteal phase of the uterine (menstrual) cycle, the corpus luteum secretes progesterone and some estrogen.
T/F: If pregnancy occurs, the secretory phase of the uterine (menstrual) cycle continues and the uterus will continue to develop.
Which of the following accompanies puberty?
When menstruation has ceased for at least one year, what has occurred?
female climacteric, or menopause
Assuming a 28-day ovarian cycle, on what day should ovulation occur?
Which follicle contains a secondary oocyte arrested in metaphase II?
vesicular (tertiary) follicle
T/F: The high levels of estrogens during the luteal phase of the ovarian cycle trigger release of more FSH and LH, and their levels peak around day 14, which causes ovulation.
T/F: Barrier methods of birth control prevent sperm from moving beyond the vagina and include condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps, and the sponge.
