Synaptonemal complex analysis in spermatocytes and oocytes of turbot, Scophthalmus maximus (Pisces, Scophthalmidae).


A surface-spreading synaptonemal complex (SC) technique was used to analyze spermatocytes and oocytes of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) to visualize the process of chromosome synapsis. The total SC length was 205 +/- 12 microm in males and 172 +/- 29 microm in the only female analyzed. A representative SC karyotype of turbot was obtained. Each SC showed… (More)
