HeLa Cells Are a Genetic Mess HeLa cells can vary in chromosome number. Defects in proteins that orchestrate cell division result in descendant cells with too many or too few chromosomes, an outcome that is one of the ha1lmarks of cancer cells. The panel of chromosomes in FIGURE 11.9 , originally published in 1989, shows all of the chromosomes in a single metaphase HeLa cell. FIGURE 11.9 Karyotype of HeLa showing chromosomes in one cell. Can you tell that this cell came from a female? How?

Can you tell that this cell came from a female? How?

Summary Introduction

To find: How it one say that the cell has come from a female.

Concept introduction: HeLa cell is the oldest and most commonly used cell line that was derived from the cervical cancer cells. HeLa cells differ from the normal cells in many ways.  These cells have the ability to contaminate other cell lines. These cells have furthered the understanding of cancer, HIV, and the cells in general. It is still used widely to grow viruses and to test anti-tumor medicines.

Explanation of Solution

Every female chromosome is composed of two X chromosomes (XX), whereas one Y and one X together form the male chromosomes (XY)...
