Science Lab question 3

Predict what might happen to each daughter cell if all of the chromosomes moved to only one side of the cell during anaphase?

Answer #1

Theoretically, one daughter cell would get most of the chromosomes, and the other would get very little DNA. The cells would recognise this, and both would apoptose (commit cell suicide) immediately afterwards. It wouldn’t really get to cytokinesis though, since there are checkpoints during mitosis which prevent this sort of thing happening, and mitosis wouldn’t move on till the previous stage had been completed. It might happen, however, if the cells are cancerous, since these checkpoints are often mutated.

Answer #2

try looking up non-disjunction
