Chromosome pairing takes two steps: members of the homologous pair become aligned first and then “zip up” throughout their length. Initial contact may begin from one end or from both ends of the chromosomes. Prom late paehytene to diplotene, the chromosomes are somewhat elongated and exhibit lampbrush characteristics. This is followed by a diffuse stage in which the chromosomes are most indistinct. The centrosome divides at this time. The chromosome numbers are as follows: Coprinus lagopus, n… Expand
A New Model for Homologous Chromosome Pairing
TLDR
It is proposed that chromosome pairing may result from the fortuitous juxtaposition of homologues by the congressive adjustments of chromosome positions during mitotic metaphase alignment and that numerous elastic physical connections are formed between corresponding sites of homology. Expand
Chromosome behaviour during meiotic prophase in the solanaceae
TLDR
Most of meiosis corresponds to earlier descriptions, but two unusual behaviours were observed, the aggregation of the chromosomes into a synizetic knot during zygotene, and the delayed contraction of chromosomes during a diffuse stage after pachytene. Expand
From early homologue recognition to synaptonemal complex formation
TLDR
The mechanisms of methylation induced premeiotically, repeat-induced point mutation, meiotic silencing by unpaired DNA, and meiotic sex chromosome inactivation will be discussed and the multiple mechanisms suggested to contribute to homologous pairing are analyzed. Expand
Meiosis in the basidiomycetous fungus,Coprinus atramentarius
TLDR
Serial sections of late pachytene nuclei showed a diglobular spindle pole body adjacent to the nuclear membrane and the two spindles of the second meiotic division formed in the same plane but at 90° to the original spindle of the first division. Expand
Meiosis in Coprinus. IX. The influence of premeiotic S-phase arrest and cold temperature on the meiotic cell cycle.
TLDR
Genetical and cytological evidence shows that diplotene is drastically reduced from 4-5 h to less than 1 h, which supports the argument that recombination frequency is a function of time. Expand
Meiotic Divisions in the Basidium
TLDR
A review of the literature illustrates that there are different opinions with respect to the morphology of the spindle apparatus and associated structures and their behavior during meiosis, and it would seem to be useful to discuss these structures and the possible functions about which there is disagreement.

TLDR
A comparative analysis of the meiotic secquence in a wide variety of organisms indicates there is no convincing evidence that premeiotic pairing plays any role in the synapsis of homologues and there is good evidence that interlocking of bivalent can occur regularly in species with a chiasma frequency sufficiently high to regularly produce ring bivalents.

Meiotic nuclear behavior and ascospore formation in five homothallic species of Neurospora
TLDR
Ascus development, haploid chromosome numbers, and morphology in all five homothallic species resemble the heterothallic N. crassa, and the following observations have not been reported previously for any Neurospora species, although some have been described in other fungi. Expand
Meiosis in Schizophyllum commune
TLDR
The synaptinemal complex of Schizophyllum consists of a banded lateral component with a 240 Å repeating unit that is similar in size to that found in Boletus. Expand
Substructural morphogenesis of the spindle apparatus in meiotic basidia ofCoprinus micaceus (Agaricales)
  • C. Thielke

  • Plant Systematics and Evolution
  • 2006
TLDR
The spindle apparatus ofCoprinus micaceus begins to develop from the diglobular polar body outside the nucleus and operates inside the nuclear envelope and consists of two amorphous poles, a central bundle of interpolar microtubules, and chromosomalmicrotubules. Expand

The presence of quadrivalents as well as secondary associations of like chromosomes suggests that Cyathus stercoreus may be a tetraploid species. Expand
The diffuse diplotene stage of meiotic prophase in Neurospora
TLDR
The prophase stages of meiosis in Neurospora crassa are re-examined and it is proposed that the diffuse stage does not necessarily represent a condition of intense gene activity in the sense of directing the metabolic activity of the ascus. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that recombination is an event subsequent to the formation of the S.C. and is independent of the process of its formation and is suggested that the event takes place at the synaptic centre. Expand

The haploid number of chromosomes in this species is unquestionably demonstrated to be seven and the centrioles were found to increase in size from division I to division III, within the ascus, but to decrease in size again by division IV. Expand

Results of recent studies on RNA metabolism during the meiotic cycle provide additional evidence on the relationship between the physical state of the chromosomes and RNA synthesis, consistent with the view that the capacities of chromosomes to transcribe DNA into RNA are inversely related to their degree of condensation.
