A diploid cell of an onion has 16 chromosomes. Haploid gametes are produced during meiosis, which is a type of cell division that reduces the number of chromosomes in a parent diploid cell by half. When meiocyte divides to form gametes, the chromosomes become half i.e., 8.
How many chromosomes will the meiocyte have?
Meiocyte is a diploid cell (2n) that divides meiotically to produce haploid gametes (n). Meiocyte has 24 chromosomes and each gamete contains 12 chromosomes.
How many chromosomes are in meiocyte of Ophioglossum?
It has almost 1260 number of chromosomes in the meiocyte (gamete mother cell) which undergo meiosis, the reduction division to form the gamete with only one set of chromosome getting incorporated into each gamete.
How many chromosomes does male gamete of butterfly have?
Male gamete of butterfly will have 190 chromosomes.
What animal has 32 chromosomes?
List of organisms by chromosome count
|Organism (Scientific name)||Chromosome number|
|American badger (Taxidea taxus)||32|
|Alfalfa (Medicago sativa)||32|
|Red fox (Vulpes vulpes)||34|
|Sunflower (Helianthus annuus)||34|
Do onions have more DNA than humans?
Since the onion (Allium cepa) is a diploid organism having a haploid genome size of 15.9 Gb, it has 4.9x as much DNA as does a human genome (3.2 Gb).
How many Haploids are in a onion?
The onion has a diploid number of 16 chromosomes, so it is seldom possible to see all of them at 1 time. Reduce the light by adjusting the diaphragm of your microscope, and see if you can find any spindle fibers near the center of the cell.
