Which cell has single set of chromosomes?
I'm assuming you mean 46 chromosomes. This is all cells. All cells have 46 chromosomes (the diploid number). Only gametes (sex cells, ie sperm and egg) have 23 chromosomes (sperm and egg meet to make a cell with 46 chromosomes). Cells dividing my meiosis (to produce gametes) have 92 chromosomes as they double up so they can half to get 2 cells with 46 chromosomes when they divide and therefore can produce the games with he haploid number (23)
From a text book.. diploid cell- In an organism that reproduses sexually, a cell containing two homologous sets of chromosomes, one set of inherited from each parent; a 2n cell haploid cell- In the life cycle of an organism that reproduces sexually, a cell containing a single set of chromosomes; an n cell ...diploid?
If a dog cell has 72 chromosomes how many daughter cells will be created during a single cell cycle?
How many chromosomes does each new cell contain after mitosis if the the original cell had 52 original cell chromosomes?
They would each have 52. When a cell divides through mitosis, it copies the original chromosomes, pulls them apart so that there is a copy of the same set of chromosomes on each side of the cell, then divides. The original set of chromosomes will always be the exact same set as the daughter cell's set of chromosomes (unless something went horribly wrong.) -if you are on a worksheet called "Section 1 Reinforcement - Cell…
The absolute number depends on the parent organism, but there are half the number of chromosomes present in a haploid cell as compared to the parental diploid cell. In humans diploid cells have 46 chromosomes, and haploid cells have 23. A diploid chromosome Set is a Paired Set; the haploid chromosome Set is a complete set of the Organism's chromosomes - UNPAIRED, as in Unique.
The nucleus is the region of the cell that contains the genetic material of the cell which are pairs of chromosomes. The chromosomes are responsible for controlling the metabolic and reproductive activities of the cell. In plants pairs of chromosomes (diploid or 2n) are found in most general cells; specialised cells such as pollen grains and the ovules contain haploid (or n) single chromosomes which are formed through the process of meitosis. When the egg…
How does the number of chromosomes in a human skin cell compare to the number of chromosomes in a human egg cell?
In a healthy person with no genetic disorders, there will be double the number of chromosomes in a skin cell versus an egg cell. This is because a skin cell is a somatic (non-sex) cell and is diploid (2 sets of chromosomes - 1 from the mother and 1 from the father). An egg cell is a sex cell and is haploid (only contains 1 set of chromosomes - the mother). When combined with a…
