Flashcards in Reproduction Deck (14):
1

Binary fission

-Asexual reproduction in unicellular organisms
-Parent divides into two roughly equal parts

2

Cell cycle

-Events of a cells life
-G1, S, G2, Mitosis, Cytokinesis
-May have G0 (resting phase)

3

Centriole

-Cylindrical organelle made of group of microtubules
-Replicated during S phase
-Separate during mitosis and move to opposite poles of cell

4

Chromatid

-One of two copies of a chromosome
-To copies called sister chromatids
-Joined at centromere

5

Chromosome

-Coiled DNA strands
-Carry hereditary information
-All body cells have same number of chromosomes

6

Cytokinesis

-Division of cell following meiosis/mitosis
-Movement of cytoplasm

7

Daughter cell

-New cell formed by replication

8

Interphase

-Phase when cell not undergoing mitosis

9

Mitosis

-Division of a nucleus
-Daughter cells genetically identical to parent
-Used for asexual reproduction and growth

10

Asexual reproduction

-One parent gives rise to new individual from body cell
-Offspring genetically identical to parent

11

Budding

-Asexual reproduction
-New individual arises as growth/bud from parent

12

Cloning

-Creation of new individual by transferring nucleus of somatic cell into egg without nucleus.
-Genetically identical to parent nucleus

13

Spore

-Haploid cell
-Develops into new organism
-Released into air

14

Vegetative reproduction

-Asexual reproduction in plants
-Piece of plant separated
-Grows into new organism
