homologous pairs
chromosomes occur in
46 homologous chromosomes
humans have this number of chromosomes
homologous chromosome
pair of chromosomes one inherited from each parent that have corresponding gene sequence and pair up during meiosis
autosomes
22 pairs of chromosomes are
sex chromosomes
one pair of chromosomes are
locus
The chromosomes of homologous pair carry genes for the same characteristics at the
locus
position that given gene occupies on chromosome
diploid
cells with two sets of chromosomes are
haploid
gametes (egg and sperm) are
true
True/false
Sexual life cycles involve alternation of haploid and diploid stages
first diploid cell
fertilization creates the
mitosis
from the moment of fertilization, what is in action
Meiosis
Reduces the chromosome number from diploid to haploid
chromosome duplication
meiosis is preceded by
four daughter cells
in meiosis the cell divides twice to form
haploid
each daughter cell is
