FEATURES One of the fundamental differences between mitotic and meiotic cells is the source of homology used to repair double strand breaks (DSBs). Recombination in vegetative cells occurs preferentially between sister chromatids to repair unexpected DNA damage. 1 In contrast, repair of programmed DSBs in meiotic cells occurs primarily between non-sister chro-matids of homologous chromosomes. 2 The resulting crossovers generate physical connections that promote accurate segregation at the first… CONTINUE READING
