Question: What would be the number of chromosomes in the meiocyte and gamete of onion?

Contents

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.

What is the chromosome number in gamete of onion?

Chromosome number in gamete of onion is 24.

What are the chromosomes numbers in meiocyte and gametes?

Events in Sexual Reproduction

How many chromosomes are in meiocyte?

The chromosome number in meiocyte is 34.

How many gametes are in an onion?

=> the cells of onion are meiocytes which are diploid i.e have two sets of chromosomes. => a diploid cell or meiocyte has 16 chromosomes. => when meicyte divides to form gamete the chromosomes become half i.e 8. => so the number of chromosomes in gamete of onion => 8.

Which have maximum number of chromosomes in meiocyte?

In Ophioglossum (a fern), the chromosome number in meiocyte is \$1260\$, then the number of chromosomes in gametes will be \$630\$. Ophioglossum reticulatum has the highest recorded chromosome number of any organism. Therefore, this is the correct option.

Is there any relationship in the number of chromosomes of Meiocytes and gametes?

Meiocytes are the cells, which undergo meiosis to produce gametes. The number of chromosomes present in gametes is half the number of chromosomes present in meiocytes.
