How many sex chromosomes in a human somatic cell?

Humans have two sex chromosomes in each somatic cell - the sex chromosomes are X and Y. Females have two X chromosomes in each cell, and Males have both an X and a Y chromosome. It is impossible to have two Y chromosomes. (Or if you did, you wouldn't be alive)


How many chromosomes do you have in your somatic cells?

46 chromosomes are there in a human somatic cell. 22 pairs of homologous chromosomes are there with one pair of XX (in case of females) and one pair of XY (in case of males). Hence, 22 pairs of chromosomes + one pair of XX/XY chromosomes gives 23 pairs of chromosomes, i.e., 46 chromosomes.

How many autosomes are present in a somatic cell?

This depends on the number of chromosomes the species has, and whether or not they have sex chromosomes. Autosomes are non-sex chromosomes, and somatic cells are cells with the full complement of chromosomes, i.e, are not gametes. Let's consider humans as our example. A human somatic cell carries a total of 46 chromosomes (23 homologous pairs). One pair of these are the sex chromosomes (an XX pair for females and an XY pair for males). That leaves 22 pairs of automes, for a total of 44.

How many chromosomes in a somatic cell from a mule?

Mules are a mix between a horse, which has 62 chromosomes, and a donkey, which has 64 chromosomes. Therefore mules have 63 chromosomes in their somatic cells.


How are gamete cells different from somatic cells?

They are sex cells and haploid. n. This means they have 23 chromosomes ( in humans ) which is half the usual cellular complement of chromosomes. This way when male and female gametes form a zygote the number of chromosomes are a full and matched complement.


How many chromosomes are in a somatic animal cell?

It will depend on the animal - the number of chromosomes varies from species to species. Somatic cells are non-sex cells. This means that in sexually reproducing animals, somatic cells usually have 2 pairs of chromosomes (they are called diploid cells). Human somatic cells have 46 (23 pairs of) chromosomes. Cat somatic cells have 38 (19 pairs of) chromosomes. Dogs have 78 (39 pairs of) chromosomes.
