Having two of each chromosome. Diploid
The only cells that undergo meiosis. Germ Cells
The actual number of different types of chromosomes a cell possesses. Haploid

cell reproduction vocabulary words Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

any cell of a living organism other than the reproductive cells. somatic cell
The male gamete or reproductive cell involved in sexual reproduction. sperm
the final phase of cell division telophase
the occurrence of an organism in more than one distinct color or form. variation
the stage of meiotic or mitotic cell division in which the chromosomes move away from one another to opposite poles of the spindle. anaphase
a threadlike structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information in the form of genes. chromosome
the cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis or meiosis, bringing about the separation into two daughter cells. cytokinisis
(of a cell or nucleus) containing two complete sets of chromosomes, one from each parent. diploid
It is the carrier of genetic information. deoxyribonucleic acid
the resting phase between successive mitotic divisions of a cell, or between the first and second divisions of meiosis. interphase
a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell, as in the production of gametes and plant spores. meiosis
the second stage of cell division, between prophase and anaphase, during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers metaphase
type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth. mitosis
the first stage of cell division, before metaphase, during which the chromosomes become visible as paired chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears. prophase
the female reproductive cell in animals and plants; an ovum. egg
a mature haploid male or female germ cell that is able to unite with another of the opposite sex in sexual reproduction to form a zygote. gamete
an organ that produces gametes; a testis or ovary. gonad
(of a cell or nucleus) having a single set of unpaired chromosomes. haploid
a pair of chromosomes containing a maternal and paternal chromatid joined to together at the centromere. homologous pair
The sperm and egg of living things. sex cell
