Can triploid cells do mitosis?

Can triploid cells do mitosis?

Any cell can divide by mitosis – haploid, triploid, even aneuploid cells.

Can polyploid cells undergo mitosis?

Polyploid cells can re-enter the mitotic cell cycle We found that polyploid Drosophila rectal cells re-enter the mitotic cell cycle despite having previously undergone two or more endocycles. The general characteristics of polyploid mitotic cycles, including cell cycle gene expression and function, appear to be normal.

What is meiotic mitosis?

Meiosis is a type of cell division that reduces the number of chromosomes in the parent cell by half and produces four gamete cells. During reproduction, when the sperm and egg unite to form a single cell, the number of chromosomes is restored in the offspring.

What is reproduced in mitosis?

One round of mitosis yields two genetically identical cells. In bacteria, this process results in an entirely new, independent organism. This is classified as asexual reproduction because it does not require sex for the creation of new organisms.

Can meiosis occur in triploid cells?

Meiosis in triploids results in four highly aneuploid gametes because six copies of each homolog must be segregated into four meiotic products. Strains derived from some of the aneuploid spore colonies had very high frequencies of mitotic chromosome loss, resulting in genetically diverse populations of cells.

Is polyploidy a mutation?

Polyploidization, the addition of a complete set of chromosomes to the genome, represents one of the most dramatic mutations known to occur. Nevertheless, polyploidy is well tolerated in many groups of eukaryotes.

Is mitotic and mitosis are same?

In the cell cycle, the cell’s DNA is replicated in interphase, the phase that precedes mitosis. Mitosis alternates with interphase to make up the cell cycle in its entirety….Mitosis Versus Meiosis: The Similarities and Differences.

Mitosis Meiosis
Ploidy Diploid daughter cells Haploid daughter cells

Why can’t a triploid cell go through meiosis?

Edit: Of course a triploid cell CAN undergo mitosis. (daughter cells with 3 chromosomes each). But in meiosis you can’t divide equally. So to be more exact: the DAUGHTER cells cannot be used for reproduction.
