In most animals, successful segregation of female meiotic chromosomes involves sequential associations of the meiosis I and meiosis II spindles with the cell cortex so that extra chromosomes can be deposited in polar bodies. The resulting reduction in chromosome number is essential to prevent the generation of polyploid embryos after fertilization. Using(More)
In animals, female meiotic spindles are attached to the egg cortex in a perpendicular orientation at anaphase to allow the selective disposal of three haploid chromosome sets into polar bodies. We have identified a complex of interacting Caenorhabditis elegans proteins that are involved in the earliest step in asymmetric positioning of anastral meiotic(More)
