Nuclear architecture and chromosome dynamics in the search of the pairing partner in meiosis in plants.

Abstract

The formation of haploid gametes in organisms with sexual reproduction requires regular bivalent chromosome pairing in meiosis. In many species, homologous chromosomes occupy separate territories at the onset of meiosis. To be paired at metaphase I, they need to be brought into a close proximity for interactions that include homology recognition and the… (More)
