A re-examination of the case for homology between the X and Y chromosomes of mouse and man

Abstract

Evidence is presented from the literature which suggests that in mouse and man, (1) synapsis between the X and Y is nonhomologous, (2) crossing over does not regularly occur between the X and Y, but is prevented by “precocious” desynapsis, and (3) normal disjunction of the X and Y is assured by an achiasmatic end association.
