An interstitial constriction located on the long arm of rye chromosome 5R (5RL) shows neocentromeric activity at meiosis. In some meiocytes this region is strongly stretched orienting with the true centromere to opposite poles at metaphase I, and keeping sister chromatid cohesion at anaphase I. We found previously that the frequency of neocentric activity varied dramatically in different generations suggesting the effect of environmental factors. Here we studied the behavior of the 5RL… CONTINUE READING
