If a single pair of homologous chromosomes experience nondisjunction during mitotic cell division, what will the resulting cells look like?

0 votes

One cell will be missing a chromosome (2n − 1) and the other cell will be diploid.

One cell will be carrying an extra chromosome (2n + 1) and the other cell will be diploid.

Both cells will be diploid because nondisjunction can be corrected prior to cell division.

Both cells will be aneuploid, with one carrying an extra chromosome (2n + 1) and the other missing a chromosome (2− 1).
