What will happen if a chromosome loses its centromere?

centromere is place at which spindle fibers are attached if the centromere is lost then chromosome will lose its point for the attachement of the spindle fiber and then will not be able to take part in mitosis. chromosome is usually lost in this case.

How abnormal number of any chromosome gets into gamete?

That happens in Ana phase.When a chromosome is not split in centromere,a chromosome fully moves to a daughter cell.

What is centromere splitting?

Centromere splitting is something that happens to the Chromosomes during the M Phase (Mitosis) of cell division. During Anaphase (a phase in the M Phase), the centrioles that have sent out spindle fibers and are at opposite poles just tug at the centromere of the Chromosome, causing the centromere to split. Anaphase is basically centromere splitting, where the spindle fibers from the centrioles split the chromosome in half at the centromere.

What is a list of the 3 parts of a chromosome?

Telomere - The ends of the chromosome. Centromere - The primary constriction of the chromosome. Chromatid - A single molecule of DNA. The centromere also divides the chromosome into a short arm (p) and a long arm (q).

What is the difference between chromosomes and centromeres?

a centromere is the center area on a chromosome when two sister chromatids have formed. if you remember in biology the picture of a chromatid it looked like an X. the centromere is where the X crosses.
