Meiosis vs. Mitosis: Comparison

Comparisons Meiosis Mitosis Number of divisions Two Divisions. One cell Division. Number and type of daughter cells produced Results in formation of four haploid sex cells (gametes) produced. Two diploid identical daughter cells for one cell division. Differences in chromosome arrangement In Metaphase 1, the maternal chromosomes pair with the paternal chromosomes at the equator…

Cell Cycles: Interphase, Mitosis, Cytokinesis

Cell Cycle: nuclear division, cytokinesis Parental cell: genetic copies of parental cell 3 process: checks/ regulators for each step to ensure timely progression, replication process to synthesis DNA into two copies, interwoven “cables” and “motors” of mitotic cytoskeletons. Chromosomes: nuclear units of genetic information; DNA molecules combined with proteins. In eukaryotes, heredity information of nucleus…
