1. Define meiosis

  • nuclear division that results in the formation of cells that are genetically identical to the parent cell
  • a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell, as in the production of gametes and plant spores.
  • uclear division that results in the formation of cells that are not genetically identical to the parent cell
  • the first stage of nuclear divison

2. what happens in Interphase?

  • The chromatids uncoil and become chromosomes gain.
  • The cells DNA is unravelled and replicated to double its genetic content. the organelles are also replicated.
  • The chromosomes condense, getting shorter and fatter, and the centrioles move to opposite ends of the cell.
  • The chromosomes line up along the middle of the cell and become attached to the spindle by their centromere.

3. Eukaryotes are about 100-1000um in diameter

  • no - they are 10-100um
  • True
  • no - they are 5-10um
  • no - they are 1000-2000

4. where does the fluid mosaic model gets it's name from?

  • it is fluid, because the phospholipids are constantly moving, and is like a mosaic, because of the protein and cholesterol molecules scattered throughout the bilayer.
  • it is because of the different molecules that make up the model
  • due to the name of the person who came up with.
  • due to the place where it was discovered

5. define division of labour?

  • amount of work an organelle does
  • what organelle completes what function
  • each type of organelle has a specific role within the cell
