61 [micro]g, respectively), yet the 2 species show the opposite extreme values for haploid set
length (C = 69.
2006), has identified 41 linkage groups that partly correspond to the 39 chromosomes per haploid set
in this species.
The nuclear division is meiotic in which sets of chromosomes are reduced (generally from two sets to one) and results in four nuclei each containing a haploid set of chromosomes.
Union of gametes (fertilization) brings haploid sets of chromosomes together and initiates the diploid sporophyte generation.
e) a human ovum or an ovum of a non-human life form that otherwise contains haploid sets
of chromosomes from both a human being and a nonhuman life form.
5-7) Apart from rare hereditary cases, complete hydatidiform mole (CHM) has a diploid nuclear genome that comprises paternal DNA ("diandry") exclusively; the 2 paternal haploid sets
may be derived from duplication of the DNA content of a single sperm or, less commonly, from the DNA of 2 separate sperm.
