Example sentences for: achiasmatic

How can you use “achiasmatic” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The rec12 mutant meioses are achiasmatic and would thus be expected to suffer chromosome segregation errors during meiosis I. To gain insight into this possibility, asci from meiotic cultures were stained with a DNA specific fluorescent dye (DAPI) and visualized by differential interference contrast (DIC) and fluorescence microscopy.

  • We propose that the Rec12-Y98F protein facilitates distributive segregation of achiasmatic chromosomes during MI.

  • Rec12 is required for chiasmatic and achiasmatic chromosome segregation during MI; and its active site tyrosine is required for chromosome segregation during MII

  • Since wild-type S. pombe has 44 crossovers per meiosis (between 11 and 18 per chromosome) [ 36 ] , the mutants statistically have less than 0.1 crossovers per chromosome per meiosis and are thus achiasmatic.

  • If Rec12 were required for such a checkpoint, the null mutants would be achiasmatic, would fail to delay for the time period required to establish distributive segregation, and would consequently undergo high rates of MI nondisjunction.
