Controversy exists regarding the meiotic behaviour of the giant sex chromosomes during spermatogenesis in the field vole, Microtus agrestis. Both univalents and bivalents have been observed between diakinesis and metaphase I. These differences seem to be dependent on the technique used. The present study employs electron microscopy of serially sectioned testes tubules and light microscopy of microspread preparations to re-examine the behaviour of sex chromosomes during meiosis. In microspreads… CONTINUE READING
