Regarding this, what is a non reproductive cell quizlet?
Non-reproductive cells that have two sets of chromosomes. Diploid. A cell with 2 sets of chromosomes. Gametes. Reproductive cells (eggs and sperm)
Similarly, what are non gametes called?
They are also referred to as sex cells. Female gametes are called ova or egg cells, and male gametes are called sperm. In contrast, each egg cell, or ovum, is relatively large and non-motile.
Like all cells, somatic cells contain DNA arranged in chromosomes. If a somatic cell contains chromosomes arranged in pairs, it is called diploid and the organism is called a diploid organism. (The gametes of diploid organisms contain only single unpaired chromosomes and are called haploid.)
