Why is it called sister chromatids?
During cell division, the chromosomes first replicate so that each daughter cell receives a complete set of chromosomes. Following DNA replication, the chromosome consists of two identical structures called sister chromatids, which are joined at the centromere.
What are four sister chromatids called?
Homologous paternal and maternal chromosomes pair up along the midline of the cell. Each pair of chromosomes—called a tetrad, or a bivalent—consists of four chromatids.
Is homologous chromosomes the same as sister chromatids?
Since homologous chromosomes are not identical and do not originate from the same organism, they are different from sister chromatids. Sister chromatids result after DNA replication has occurred, and thus are identical, side-by-side duplicates of each other.
What is Nonsister chromatid?
A non-sister chromatid refers to either one of the two chromatids of paired homologous chromosomes. During prophase I of meiosis I, the non-sister chromatids of (homologous chromosomes) form chiasma(ta) to exchange genetic material.
What is the difference between Synapsis and a chiasma?
Synapsis is the pairing of homologous chromosomes during prophase while chiasma is the point of contact between unrelated chromatids from homologous…
