The development of the first meiotic prophase stages was studied in two series of human female embryos and fetuses aborted for social reasons. The first series (64 embryos or fetuses aborted at 6–24 weeks of gestation) was used mainly to perfect the methods applied to obtain chromosome preparations and synaptonemal complex spreads. The second series (37 embryos or fetuses aborted at 9–24 weeks of gestation) was used to establish the timing and to charcterize the different stages of prophase I… CONTINUE READING
