The morphological sequence of XY pairing in the Norway rat Rattus norvegicus

Abstract

The sequence of XY pairing at meiotic prophase in the Norway rat, Rattus norvegicus, has been studied in spread preparations of spermatocytes obtained from pubertal males. As in most mammals, sex chromosome pairing is delayed in relation to that of the autosomes. At one stage in pachytene, the Y is fully paired in synaptonemal complex association with about… (More)
