How many chromatids are in the cell?
Prior to replication, human somatic cells contain 46 chromosomes. Thus, after replication, there would be 92 chromatids. In other words, a chromatid is one half of a replicated chromosome. Two chromatids are joined together by a central centromere to form one single chromosome.
How many chromatids is 92 chromosomes?
During metaphase, there are 46 chromosomes composed of two sister chromatids each that align at the metaphase plate. Then, during anaphase, these chromatids are separated and pulled to opposite poles of the cell. This separation results in 92 separate chromatids in the cell, which are considered 92 chromosomes.
What happens when you have 47 chromosomes?
Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. A trisomy is a chromosomal condition characterised by an additional chromosome. A person with a trisomy has 47 chromosomes instead of 46. Down syndrome, Edward syndrome and Patau syndrome are the most common forms of trisomy.
