agenda of the translator.
In meiosis, the accurate segregation of maternal and paternal chromosomes
is accomplished by homologous recombination. A central player in meiotic
recombination is the Dmc1 recombinase, a member of the RecA⁄Rad51
recombinase superfamily, which is widely conserved from viruses to
Recombination of homologous chromosomes is essential for correct reduc-tional segregation of homologous chromosomes, which characterizes meio-sis. To accomplish homologous recombination, chromosomes must find
their homologous partners and pair with them within the spatial con-straints of the nucleus.
Chapter 12 - Patterns of inheritance, after studying this chapter, you should be able to accomplish the following outcomes: List the approaches to science that made Gregor Mendel's genetic experiments successful, define Mendel's law of segregation, contrast dominant alleles with recessive alleles, define genotype and phenotype,...
