Karyotype Analysis of Human Chromosomes 1. Karyotype preparation and analysis Cells (from blood, amniotic fluid, etc) are grown in vitro (in a cell culture dish) to increase their number Cell division is then arrested in metaphase with colchicine (prevents mitotic spindle from forming) Cells are centrifuged and lysed to release chromosomes Chromosomes are stained, photographed, and grouped by size and banding patterns This is a photograph of the 46 human chromosomes in a somatic cell, arrested...

Biotechnology was not a subject us two girls knew a lot about. Hearing the word biotechnology we thought of cloning, lab work, and experiments. Little did we know that it is much more complex than we thought. Biotechnology deals with crops to animals, fruit, milk, and...

Homologous Chromosomes and Sister Chromatids

 Homologous Chromosomes and Sister Chromatids (HC and SC): Clearly distinguish between HC and SC pairs. Your answer should include the following: a clear distinction between ‘chromatin’ and ‘chromosome’, and how this difference affects gene expression; simple line diagrams to illustrate the difference between non-replicated and replicated DNA inchromatin and chromosome forms; afull description of both HC and SC with a labeled diagram that includes gene/allele sequences for a heterozygote and...

Karyotype: Sex Chromosomes

KARYOTYPING LAB INTRODUCTION The complete set of chromosomes in the body cell of a species is known as karyotype. Karyotype is a test to identify and evaluate the size, shape, and number of chromosomes in a sample of body cells. Any abnormalities such as extra, missing, or abnormal positions of chromosome pieces can cause problems with a person growth, development and body functions. Karyotype can be used to determine whether the chromosomes of an adult have an abnormality that can be passed on...

The Positioning of Chromosomes During Cell Division

Introduction For a zygote to contain a diploid complement of chromosomes, the gametes, which fuse to form this zygote must contain half the number of chromosomes. This reduction of chromosome number occurs in two distinct sequential phases of meiosis, termed meiosis I and meiosis II. Both divisional sequences have sub-stages such as, prophase (I, II), prometaphase (I, II), metaphase (I, II), anaphase (I, II), and telophase (I, II) that is continued by cytokinesis (I, II), which is not part of meiosis...
