This is because the primarily cytological knowledge of the SC has been increasingly supplemented by immunochemical characterization and genetical studies over recent years. Moreover, yeast, offering one of the most handy and rewarding experimental systems, has joined the group of organisms in which the SC can be studied cytologically. In this essay I shall present aspects concerning the SC and its role in meiotic… CONTINUE READING
