Studies of rec-1 function in Caenorhabditis elegans

Vijeyakumary Vijayaratnam
The faithful transmission of genetic information to succeeding generations relies on the accurate segregation of chromosomes during meiosis. Central to the meiotic process is recombination. Alteration of the pattern of crossing over can lead to improper chromosome segregation. A recessive mutation in the rec-1 gene in Caenorhabditis elegans eliminates the meiotic pattern of crossing over on the autosomes. Whether or not the rec-1 mutation also affects the X chromosome was investigated. Even though the amount...
