Example sentences for: achiasmatic

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

  • Rec12 has dual roles in chiasmatic and achiasmatic (distributive) chromosome segregation during Meiosis I

  • In the absence of Rec12 protein and crossovers, a backup distributive (achiasmatic) segregation system operates successfully on up to half of the chromosomes that would otherwise undergo MI nondisjunction.

  • However, the frequency of MI nondisjunction observed is only half of that expected, suggesting the presence of a distributive (achiasmatic) system of chromosome segregation.

  • The rec12-D15 (null) mutants are achiasmatic (Table 1) and, as anticipated, exhibit a high frequency of MI nondisjunction (Figures 3, 5, Table 2).

  • A 250-fold reduction in recombination would leave less than 0.1 crossovers per chromosome, so all three chromosomes in most of the rec12 mutant meioses are achiasmatic.
