Synaptonemal complexes (SCs) are zipperlike structures that are assembled between homologous chromosomes during meiotic prophase. They consist of two axial elements (AEs) (one along each of the two homologous chromosomes), which, in mature SCs, are connected by numerous transverse filaments along their length. Several proteins involved in the later steps of meiotic recombination most probably function in close association with the AEs of SCs, because the proteins involved in these steps have… CONTINUE READING
