What cell produces female characteristics?
Hormones, not cells, determine characteristics. Females have two 'X' chromosomes, and men have one 'X' and one 'Y'.
The sperm which has got X chromosome in it. Fortunately it is not possible to isolate such types of sperms. It will be better that you do not have the technology to determine the sex of the child by way of selecting the sperms. Technology have already disturbed the sex ratio is some countries of the world.
A female produces only one functional egg cell because if a female produce four functional egg cell it means that the female will have four babies in her womb if the four lucky sperm cells reached the four functional egg cell. it says that theres only one lucky sperm cell for the egg cell so female produce only one functional egg cell.
Why are there 4 sperm cells form the original male cell and only 1 egg cell from the original female cell?
gametes are produced by a special kind of cell division called meiosis. Meiosis produces ova (eggs) in women and sperm in men. Gametes have half the normal number of chromosomes (haploid number) - 23 chromosomes in human egg or sperm cells. For just the female gamete, the egg cell goes through the process of 'Oogenesis', which produces one female gamete and three polar bodies.
Why is it important that meiosis produces gametes that have only half the chromosomes of the parent cell?
Type your answer here... There are two types in cell division Mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis occurs in Somatic cells and it produces diploid cells(i.e., cells with the same number of chromosomes as that of the mother cell) .This is because of the formation of sister chromatids . Meiosis is further subdivided into Meiosis -1 and meiosis-2.meiosis -1 produces diploid cell and is a process which is same as that of mitosis.But meiosis-2 produces haploid cells…
