The definition of chromosomes?
chromosome is one of the structures in the nucleus that are made up of DNA and protein
chromosomes carry the hereditary information of an organism and is made up of chromatin
By definition the diploid number of chromosomes is 2 times the number of chromosomes, and 2x is always even.
structures in the nucleus that is made up of DNA
two chromosomes, one of paternal origin, the other of maternalorigin, that are identical in appearance and pair during meiosis
i guess it would be false because the definition is: any pair of chromosomes OTHER THAN THE SEX chromosomes so its not ALL paired chromosomes because it excludes the sex chromosomes. =D
The number, form, and size of the chromosomes in a cell/individual. It can also be used to describe a photomicrograph of chromosomes arranged according to a standard classification.
A diploid cell has pairs of homologous chromosomes in its nucleus.
A sex chromosome helps in the determination of sex in an organism.
It would not be a sex cell. By definition a sex cell has half the number of chromosomes.
An autosome is a type of chromosome that does not happen to be a sex chromosome (allosome). Humans will each have 42 autosome chromosomes and one pair of allosome chromosomes.
Yes! The definition of a genetic disorder is an abnormal condition that a person inherits through genes or chromosomes.
The definition of DNA is a chemical that makes up chromosomes that contains an organism's informational code> deoxyribonucleic; the material found in cells nucles, that determines the organism
A cell with pairs of homologous chromosomes. (it has two copies of each chromosome)
A pair of chromosomes containing a maternal and paternal chromatid joined to together at the centromere.
homologous chromosomes are chromosomes that are paired during meiosis. They consists of four chromatids. One pair comes from the father and the other, from the mother.The homologous chromosomes are the same size, their centromeres are in the same postition, they have the same number of genes, arranged in the same order. the main definition is Chromosomes that have the same length, appearance and copies of genes, although the alleles may differ
A 1n cell is a haploid cell, posessing one copy of each chromosome for that species. N=the number of different chromosomes present, 1=the number of sets of chromosomes.
diploid, definition is here http://www.bioethics.gov/reports/stemcell/glossary.html
Homo is a Latin word root that means man, or human. When it is used as a prefix, as in "homosexual," it comes from the Greek word homos, meaning the same. Homologous chromosomes are a pair of chromosomes that have the same gene sequences and are paired during meiosis.
the process of nuclear division in cells during which the number of chromosomes is reduced by half
Nuclear division that results in the formation of cells containing half the number of chromosomes as the adult cell.
Females have the same amount of chromosomes as males, except to be male, you have an X and a Y, whilst females have an X and an X to be girls. P.S. this answer may not be 100% correct, this was answered by an 8 year old.
the definition of telophase is the final stage in mitosis, during which a set of chromosomes is present at each end of the cell and a nuclear membrane forms around each, producing two new nuclei.
The process by which DNA is copied before it condences into chromosomes. Replication takes place before a cell divides
Diploids are bodily cells that possess two set of chromosomes that are derived from a male and a female gamete cells (haploid)
Genes are arranged on twisted strands called A. Cells B. Chromosomes C . Hormones D. Mechanisms
What might happen inf the gametes of a species has the same number of chromosomes as the species' body cells?
They won't. Gametes by definition are haploid while the somatic cells are diploid. i.e. Gametes halve 1/2 the chromosomes as somatic cells.
Homologous We receive one complete set of chromosomes from each parent. This means that for each chromosome, say chromosome 7, there are two copies in every cell of our bodies: the maternal and paternal copies of chromosome 7. The two copies of one chromosome are called a pair of homologous chromosomes.
They are visible during mitosis. During Prophase the DNA is compacted into Chromosomes while the intermediate filaments that make up the Nuclear Envelope are phosphorylated and it falls apart. Leaving behind the chromosomes, very easy to see throughout prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase (Until the nucleus reforms in both daughter cells and the chromosomes de-condense). Chromosomes are easy to see by definition, their name in greek literally means colored bodies, this mostly because the guy… Read More
the process in which homologous chromosomes exchange portions of their chromatids during meiosis is the definition of the term "Crossing Over"
A karyotype is the number and type of chromosomes within the nucleus of a cell of a species. Given that definition, the karyotype is within the cell. There can be no cells within the karyotype.
Sexlinked traits are alleles that reside on the X or Y chromosomes but generallly refer to alleles on the X chromosome that do not have a matching allele on the Y chromosome. Sex-related traits would be any characteristic displayed by individuals of a particular sex. These traits, while primarily controlled by the sex chromosomes can be greatly modified by many factors on other chromosomes and during development.

I don't know the Human Physiology definition, but the cell definition is: Cytokinasis is the last stage of mitosis. It is the process of splitting the daughter cells apart. A furrow forms and the cell is pinched in two. Each daughter cell contains the same number and same quality of chromosomes.
The chromosomes in each pair of chromosomes are called diploid chromosomes.
A process by which chromosomes replicate without the division of the cell nucleus. For the source and more detailed information concerning your request, click on the related links section indicated below.
Contiguity is defined as a series of items within ones area. In science, a large mass or set of genes, which are close to other chromosomes would be considered contiguous.
One pair of chromosomes is two chromosomes.
The 22 pairs of chromosomes that aren't the sex chromosomes are known as the autosomal chromosomes. The X and Y chromosomes are the sex chromosomes.
a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth
One pair of chromosomes are considered sex chromosomes. Chromosomes number 23 are either X or Y. A person with XX chromosomes is female. A person with XY chromosomes is male.
The 44 chromosomes that are not sex chromosomes. 1st through the 22nd pair. The X and Y chromosomes are the only chromosomes not autosomes.
The autosomal is all the chromosomes, except for the sex chromosomes. so, in a sense, the autosomal has nothing to do with the sex chromosomes. sex chromosomes determine the offspring's sex. Autosomal is simply all of the other chromosomes.
A lobster has 100 chromosomes. Humans have 46 chromosomes, the same as a lizard. A dog has 78 chromosomes, and a fly has 12 chromosomes.
haploid chromosomes are a set of chromosomes from one parent , half the total of diploid chromosomes.
homologous chromosomes and autosomal chromosomes
Autosomal chromosomes are all non-sex (X or Y) chromosomes.
The chromosomes that a kiwi has are diploid sets of chromosomes. That is approximately 174 pairs of chromosomes.
Homologous chromosomes are chromosomes that are a member of a chromosomes pair. I believe it's ONE of the 46 you would see on a karytype.
Chromosomes can be observed by karyotypes which are pictures of the chromosomes.
the human x chromosomes are female chromosomes and y choromes are male chromosomes
