Example Question #1 : Help With Karyotypes
Which term refers to a picture of the chromosomes of a single cell, arranged in descending order of size?
Radionuclide reflux imaging
A karyotype is produced by staining and photographing the chromosomes of a dividing cell. Pictures of the individual chromosomes are cut out and arranged in descending order of size. The chromosomes occur in homologous pairs that are similar in both staining patterns and size and have similar genetic material.
Physiological imaging is the visual representation of the functions of an organ, for example its blood flow, electrical activity, metabolism, and oxygen uptake. Radionuclide reflux imaging is a nuclear medicine scan used to determine whether an infant has gastroesophageal reflux. Phage type involves distinguishing subgroups of bacteria by the type of bacteriophage associated with that specific bacterium. Chromatography is the separation of two or more chemical compounds by their removal at different rates based on differential absorption and solubility.
