- Any cell in the human body which is not a gamete, i.e., either a sperm or an ovum/egg cell is called a somatic cell. The reproductive cells of the body are called the germ cells.
- Skin cells, nerve cells, cells of the mammary gland and muscle cells are all somatic cells. Sperm and ovum are germ cells.
- Somatic cells always have twice the number of chromosomes found in the germ cells/gametes.
- Somatic cells contains 23 pairs of chromosomes (22 autosomes + 1 sex chromosome (X/Y)
- Germ cells contain only 23 chromosomes (22 autosomes + 1 sex chromosome (X/Y)
- The chromosomal set of 23 chromosomes present in different parts of the body do not show variations. However, the individual chromosomes such as chromosomes 1, 2, 3, X, Y etc. show variations with respect to size, length and the number of genes.
