The reciprocal exchange of segments at corresponding positions along pairs of homologous CHROMOSOMES by symmetrical breakage and crosswise rejoining forming cross-over sites (HOLLIDAY JUNCTIONS) that are resolved during CHROMOSOME SEGREGATION.

Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

A genetic linkage map of rat chromosome 9 with a new locus for variant activity of liver aldehyde oxidase. (1/1272)

A genetic linkage map of rat chromosome 9 consisting of five loci including a new biochemical marker representing a genetic variation of the activity of the liver aldehyde oxidase, (Aox) was constructed. Linkage analysis of the five loci among 92 backcross progeny of (WKS/Iar x IS/Iar)F1 x WKS/Iar revealed significant linkages between these loci. Minimizing crossover frequency resulted in the best gene order: Aox-D9Mit4-Gls-Cryg-Tp53l1. The homologues of the Cryg, Gls, and Aox genes have been mapped on mouse chromosome 1 and human chromosome 2q. The present findings provide further evidence for the conservation of synteny among these regions of rat, mouse, and human chromosomes.  (+info)

Removal of one nonhomologous DNA end during gene conversion by a RAD1- and MSH2-independent pathway. (2/1272)

Repair of a double-strand break (DSB) by homologous recombination depends on the invasion of a 3'-ended strand into an intact template sequence to initiate new DNA synthesis. When the end of the invading DNA is not homologous to the donor, the nonhomologous sequences must be removed before new synthesis can begin. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the removal of these ends depends on both the nucleotide excision repair endonuclease Rad1p/Rad10p and the mismatch repair proteins Msh2p/Msh3p. In rad1 or msh2 mutants, when both ends of the DSB have nonhomologous ends, repair is reduced approximately 90-fold compared to a plasmid with perfect ends; however, with only one nonhomologous end, repair is reduced on average only 5-fold. These results suggest that yeast has an alternative, but less efficient, way to remove a nonhomologous tail from the second end participating in gene conversion. When the removal of one nonhomologous end is impaired in rad1 and msh2 mutants, there is also a 1-hr delay in the appearance of crossover products of gene conversion, compared to noncrossovers. We interpret these results in terms of the formation and resolution of alternative intermediates of a synthesis-dependent strand annealing mechanism.  (+info)

Distribution of crossing over on mouse synaptonemal complexes using immunofluorescent localization of MLH1 protein. (3/1272)

We have used immunofluorescent localization to examine the distribution of MLH1 (MutL homolog) foci on synaptonemal complexes (SCs) from juvenile male mice. MLH1 is a mismatch repair protein necessary for meiotic recombination in mice, and MLH1 foci have been proposed to mark crossover sites. We present evidence that the number and distribution of MLH1 foci on SCs closely correspond to the number and distribution of chiasmata on diplotene-metaphase I chromosomes. MLH1 foci were typically excluded from SC in centromeric heterochromatin. For SCs with one MLH1 focus, most foci were located near the middle of long SCs, but near the distal end of short SCs. For SCs with two MLH1 foci, the distribution of foci was bimodal regardless of SC length, with most foci located near the proximal and distal ends. The distribution of MLH1 foci indicated interference between foci. We observed a consistent relative distance (percent of SC length in euchromatin) between two foci on SCs of different lengths, suggesting that positive interference between MLH1 foci is a function of relative SC length. The extended length of pachytene SCs, as compared to more condensed diplotene-metaphase I bivalents, makes mapping crossover events and interference distances using MLH1 foci more accurate than using chiasmata.  (+info)

The frequency and allelism of lethal chromosomes in isolated desert populations of Drosophila pseudoobscura. (4/1272)

Second-chromosome lethals were extracted from four populations of Drosophila pseudoobscura in Southern California. Two of the populations were from desert oases and two from the classic habitat on Mt. San Jacinto, previously studied by Dobzhansky. Allelism tests were made on the lethals within and between all locations. The frequency of lethal second-chromosomes in each location was 0.18, and this was not different from the results of other workers for samples throughout the species range. Interpopulational allelism rates were about 0.005, and not different from earlier results of Dobzhansky. Intrapopulational rates in this study were, with one exception, the same as the interpopulational rates, and significantly lower than Dobzhansky found using the third chromosome. This may be due to lethals being linked with heterotic third-chromosome inversions. The allelism rate of the exceptional population (about 0.03 and equal to Dobzhansky's intrapopulational results) may be due to heterotic lethals, or a founder effect. Two lethals were found in three populations each, possibly due to migration among these populations, which are up to 334 km apart.  (+info)

Intermolecular V(D)J recombination is prohibited specifically at the joining step. (5/1272)

V(D)J recombination, normally an intramolecular process, assembles immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes from V, D, and J coding segments. Oncogenic chromosome translocations can result from aberrant rearrangements, such as occur in intermolecular V(D)J recombination. How this is normally prevented remains unclear; DNA cleavage, joining, or both could be impaired when the recombination signal sequences (RSS) are located in trans, on separate DNA molecules. Here, we show that both trans cleavage and joining of signal ends occur efficiently in vivo. Unexpectedly, trans joining of coding ends is severely impaired (100-to 1000-fold), indicating that protection against intermolecular V(D)J recombination is established at the joining step. These findings suggest a novel surveillance mechanism for eliminating cells containing aberrant V(D)J rearrangements.  (+info)

Genetic recombination of poliovirus in vitro and in vivo: temperature-dependent alteration of crossover sites. (6/1272)

Genetic recombination that occurs with high frequency during poliovirus genome replication is a process whose molecular mechanism is poorly understood. Studies of genetic recombination in a cell-free system in vitro and in infected tissue culture cells in vivo have led to the unexpected observation that temperature strongly influences the loci at which cross-over between the two recombining RNA strands occurs. Specifically, cross-over between two genetically marked RNA strands in vitro and in vivo at 34 degrees C occurred over a wide range of the genome. In contrast, recombination in vivo at 37 and 40 degrees C yielded cross-over patterns that had shifted dramatically to a region encoding nonstructural proteins. Preferential selection of recombinants at 37 and 40 degrees C was ruled out by analyses of the growth kinetics of the recombinants. During the studies of recombination in the cell-free system we found that there is a direct correlation between the ability of a poliovirus RNA molecule to replicate in the cell-free system and its capacity to complement de novo virus synthesis programmed by another viral RNA.  (+info)

Three-dimensional microscopy of the Rad51 recombination protein during meiotic prophase. (7/1272)

An open question in meiosis is whether the Rad51 recombination protein functions solely in meiotic recombination or whether it is also involved in the chromosome homology search. To address this question, we have performed three-dimensional high-resolution immunofluorescence microscopy to visualize native Rad51 structures in maize male meiocytes. Maize has two closely related RAD51 genes that are expressed at low levels in differentiated tissues and at higher levels in mitotic and meiotic tissues. Cells and nuclei were specially fixed and embedded in polyacrylamide to maintain both native chromosome structure and the three dimensionality of the specimens. Analysis of Rad51 in maize meiocytes revealed that when chromosomes condense during leptotene, Rad51 is diffuse within the nucleus. Rad51 foci form on the chromosomes at the beginning of zygotene and rise to approximately 500 per nucleus by mid-zygotene when chromosomes are pairing and synapsing. During chromosome pairing, we consistently found two contiguous Rad51 foci on paired chromosomes. These paired foci may identify the sites where DNA sequence homology is being compared. During pachytene, the number of Rad51 foci drops to seven to 22 per nucleus. This higher number corresponds approximately to the number of chiasmata in maize meiosis. These observations are consistent with a role for Rad51 in the homology search phase of chromosome pairing in addition to its known role in meiotic recombination.  (+info)

Use of a recombination reporter insert to define meiotic recombination domains on chromosome III of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (8/1272)

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, meiotic recombination is initiated by DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs). DSBs usually occur in intergenic regions that display nuclease hypersensitivity in digests of chromatin. DSBs are distributed nonuniformly across chromosomes; on chromosome III, DSBs are concentrated in two "hot" regions, one in each chromosome arm. DSBs occur rarely in regions within about 40 kb of each telomere and in an 80-kb region in the center of the chromosome, just to the right of the centromere. We used recombination reporter inserts containing arg4 mutant alleles to show that the "cold" properties of the central DSB-deficient region are imposed on DNA inserted in the region. Cold region inserts display DSB and recombination frequencies that are substantially less than those seen with similar inserts in flanking hot regions. This occurs without apparent change in chromatin structure, as the same pattern and level of DNase I hypersensitivity is seen in chromatin of hot and cold region inserts. These data are consistent with the suggestion that features of higher-order chromosome structure or chromosome dynamics act in a target sequence-independent manner to control where recombination events initiate during meiosis.  (+info)

Recombination plays a crucial role in creating novel genetic variation in sexually reproducing species (Barton and Charlesworth 1998; Otto and Lenormand 2002) and for securing proper disjunction of sister chromatids and chromosomes during meiosis. Chiasma interference (hereafter simply referred to as interference) is a fundamental process that influences crossover locations because the formation of a chiasma reduces the chance of a nearby recombination (Sturtevant 1915). Interference was thought to only occur within independent chromosome arms because the centromere acted as a barrier to interference (Mather 1938).. Another important role of recombination includes crossing over between homeologs; these crossovers slow rediploidization of polyploid-origin genomes resulting from recent whole genome duplications (WGD). Pioneering studies considered allozyme loci in lake trout and brook trout hybrids to characterize segregation of duplicated loci in males and presented a meiotic model for explaining ...

High resolution analyses indicate that meiotic crossovers in human autosomes tend to cluster into 1-2 kb hotspots separated by blocks of high LD tens to hundreds of kilobases long. In contrast, low resolution data suggest only modest regional variation in recombination efficiency across the 2.6 Mb Xp/Yp pseudoautosomal region (PAR1), a male-specific recombination hot domain with a recombination rate about twenty times higher than the genome average. Recent data suggest a more complex picture of PAR1 recombination. Around the SHOX gene, 500 kb from the telomere, LD decays extremely rapidly with physical distance, but nearly all crossovers cluster into a highly localised hotspot about 2 kb wide. In contrast, SNPs in a 1.5 kb region immediately adjacent to the PAR1 telomere are in intense LD, implying that this region is recombinationally inert and that male crossover activity terminates at a currently unidentified boundary in the distal region of PAR1. To further investigate PAR1 recombination, ...
The pairing of homologues at the start of meiosis we helps to ensure that each gamete gets one person in each set. Homologues contact each other along most of their size and are also held together by a protein that is special called the synaptonemal complex. This relationship associated with the homologues may continue from hours to times. The relationship of this two chromosomes is known as a bivalent, and since you can find four chromatids included additionally, it is known as a tetrad. The points of accessory are called chiasmata (single, chiasma).. The pairing of homologues includes the near-identical sequences discovered on each chromosome, and also this sets the phase for crossing over. The mechanism that is exact which crossing over occurs is certainly not understood. Crossing over is controlled by an extremely protein that is large called a recombination nodule. A few of the proteins involved also play roles in DNA replication and fix, which will be unsurprising, given that all three ...
Background: Meiotic recombination is the foundation for genetic variation in natural and artificial populations of eukaryotes. Although genetic maps have been developed for numerous plant species since the late 1980s, few of these maps have provided the necessary resolution needed to investigate the genomic and epigenomic features underlying meiotic crossovers. Results: Using a whole genome sequencing-based approach, we developed two high-density reference-based haplotype maps using diploid potato clones as parents. The vast majority (81%) of meiotic crossovers were mapped to less than 5 kb. The fine-scale accuracy of crossover detection was validated by Sanger sequencing for a subset of ten crossover events. We demonstrate that crossovers reside in genomic regions of open chromatin, which were identified based on hypersensitivity to DNase I digestion and association with H3K4me3-modified nucleosomes. The genomic regions spanning crossovers were significantly enriched with the Stowaway family ...
largely the result of two tight double crossovers, including a pair of crossovers separated by only 10 cM (see Figure 3). If the estimated genetic distance between these crossovers had been larger, the estimated level of interference on chromosome 12 would be stronger. Estimates of the interference parameter are clearly sensitive to the distance between tightly spaced double crossovers.. Our results rely, in part, on the appropriateness of the gamma model. While the gamma model provides a reasonable fit to these data (see Figure 6), it fails to capture all of the biological details of the recombination process. For example, it does not require the presence of at least one chiasma on the four-strand bundle. The gamma model should be viewed as a device for estimating the strength of crossover interference. While more elaborate mathematical models might conform better to what is known about the biological mechanism of the recombination process, the data are not sufficient to discriminate between ...

While the gamma model provides a reasonable fit to these data (see Figure 6), it fails to capture all of the biological details of the recombination process. For example, it does not require the presence of at least one chiasma on the four-strand bundle. The gamma model should be viewed as a device for estimating the strength of crossover interference. While more elaborate mathematical models might conform better to what is known about the biological mechanism of the recombination process, the data are not sufficient to discriminate between ...
A small crossover control study of triclosan- and triclocarban-containing products in humans showed that routine use of these products does not have a significant impact on human oral or gut microbiome composition or on other metabolic markers.
Recombination events have important uses in experimental and medical genetics. They can be used to order and determine distances between loci (chromosome positions) by genetic mapping techniques. Loci that are on the same chromosome are all physically linked to one another, but they can be separated by crossing over. Examining the frequency with which two loci are separated allows a calculation of their distance: The closer they are, the more likely they are to remain together. Multiple comparisons of crossing over among multiple loci allows these loci to be mapped, or placed in relative position to one another.. Recombination frequency in one region of the genome will be influenced by other, nearby recombination events, and these differences can complicate genetic mapping. The term interference describes this phenomenon. In positive interference, the presence of one crossover in a region decreases the probability that another crossover will occur nearby. Negative interference, the opposite of ...
Crossing over, in addition to its strictly genetic role, is responsible for an orderly reduction of the chromosome number. As such, it is strictly controlled in frequency and distribution. In our new paper, we described direct evidence of chromatid interference. Using in situ probing in two interspecific plant hybrids during anaphase I, we demonstrated that the involvement of four chromatids in double crossovers is significantly more frequent than expected (64% versus 25%). We also provided a physical measure of the crossover interference distance, covering ~30-40% of the relative chromosome arm length, and showed that the two arms of a chromosome appear to act as independent units in the process of crossing over ...

One major conclusion from our analysis is that there is a higher rate of nonsynonymous site evolution in the regions of the Drosophila genome that apparently lack crossing over, as compared with regions with low to high rates of crossing over (Figure 1). We also found little evidence of differences in dN or dN/dS between low, intermediate, and high crossover regions. This contrasts with the results of Betancourt and Presgraves [12] and Presgraves [13], who found higher nonsynonymous divergence between D. melanogaster and D. simulans in regions of high recombination when compared with the rest of the genome. The reason for this difference is not entirely clear, but it may reflect the fact that the previous studies were based on relatively few genes. These might have included some genes with unusually high rates of amino acid sequence evolution in the high recombination regions. Consistent with this possibility, Betancourt and Presgraves [12] and Presgraves [13] found a much higher mean ratio of ...

It is well known that rather general mutation-recombination models can be solved algorithmically (though not in closed form) by means of Haldane linearization. The price to be paid is that one has to work with a multiple tensor product of the state space one started from. Here, we present a relevant subclass of such models, in continuous time, with independent mutation events at the sites, and crossover events between them. It admits a closed solution of the corresponding differential equation on the basis of the original state space, and also closed expressions for the linkage disequilibria, derived by means of M\obius inversion. As an extra benefit, the approach can be extended to a model with selection of additive type across sites. We also derive a necessary and sufficient criterion for the mean fitness to be a Lyapunov function and determine the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions ...
Just as the uncounted dreams of unnumbered dead worlds echo and resonate within the realms of the Great Ring, the Ectosphere seeps into the manifest realms wherever the living spend any amount of time. The collapse of the universe brought about by the Monocrats Mechanisms has exerted a tremendous pressure upon the Ectosphere, forcing it to erupt into the manifest with the slightest provocation, invitation or tiniest crack or fracture. The dead are very restless in Zalchis and they are desperate to make the most of what time remains before everything comes to an end. You will need to learn how to ward off the insinuations and temptations of the Ectosphere or lose more than your mind to the things that prowl at the very sheerest margins of separation between the manifest and what lies beyond. Crossing over between the realms is no longer a difficult task to accomplish, as in the olden days when people tried to communicate with the departed, now it is a terrible thing that erupts forth if one just ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The SMC-5/6 Complex and the HIM-6 (BLM) Helicase Synergistically Promote Meiotic Recombination Intermediate Processing and Chromosome Maturation during Caenorhabditis elegans Meiosis. AU - Hong, Ye. AU - Sonneville, Remi. AU - Agostinho, Ana. AU - Meier, Bettina. AU - Wang, Bin. AU - Blow, J. Julian. AU - Gartner, Anton. PY - 2016/3/24. Y1 - 2016/3/24. N2 - Meiotic recombination is essential for the repair of programmed double strand breaks (DSBs) to generate crossovers (COs) during meiosis. The efficient processing of meiotic recombination intermediates not only needs various resolvases but also requires proper meiotic chromosome structure. The Smc5/6 complex belongs to the structural maintenance of chromosome (SMC) family and is closely related to cohesin and condensin. Although the Smc5/6 complex has been implicated in the processing of recombination intermediates during meiosis, it is not known how Smc5/6 controls meiotic DSB repair. Here, using Caenorhabditis elegans we show ...
The recombinational environment is predicted to influence patterns of protein sequence evolution through the effects of Hill-Robertson interference among linked sites subject to selection. In freely recombining regions of the genome, selection should more effectively incorporate new beneficial mutations, and eliminate deleterious ones, than in regions with low rates of genetic recombination. We examined the effects of recombinational environment on patterns of evolution using a genome-wide comparison of Drosophila melanogaster and D. yakuba. In regions of the genome with no crossing over, we find elevated divergence at nonsynonymous sites and in long introns, a virtual absence of codon usage bias, and an increase in gene length. However, we find little evidence for differences in patterns of evolution between regions with high, intermediate, and low crossover frequencies. In addition, genes on the fourth chromosome exhibit more extreme deviations from regions with crossing over than do other, no
Author Summary Cell proliferation involves DNA replication followed by a mitotic division, producing two cells with identical genomes. Diploid organisms, which contain two genome copies per cell, also undergo meiosis, where DNA replication followed by two divisions produces haploid gametes, the equivalent sperm and eggs, with a single copy of the genome. During meiosis, the two copies of each chromosome are brought together and connected by recombination intermediates (joint molecules, JMs) at sites of sequence identity. During meiosis, JMs frequently resolve as crossovers, which exchange flanking sequences, and crossovers are required for accurate chromosome segregation. JMs also form during the mitotic cell cycle, but resolve infrequently as crossovers. To understand how JMs resolve during the mitotic cell cycle, we used a property of budding yeast, return to growth (RTG), in which cells exit meiosis and resume the mitotic cell cycle. By returning to growth cells with high levels of JMs, we determined
Mph1 is a member of the conserved FANCM family of DNA motor proteins that play key roles in genome maintenance processes underlying Fanconi anemia, a cancer predisposition syndrome in humans. Here, we identify Mte1 as a novel interactor of the Mph1 helicase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In vitro, Mte1 (Mph1-associated telomere maintenance protein 1) binds directly to DNA with a preference for branched molecules such as D loops and fork structures. In addition, Mte1 stimulates the helicase and fork regression activities of Mph1 while inhibiting the ability of Mph1 to dissociate recombination intermediates. Deletion of MTE1 reduces crossover recombination and suppresses the sensitivity of mph1Δ mutant cells to replication stress. Mph1 and Mte1 interdependently colocalize at DNA damage-induced foci and dysfunctional telomeres, and MTE1 deletion results in elongated telomeres. Taken together, our data indicate that Mte1 plays a role in regulation of crossover recombination, response to replication ...
Recombination hotspots are regions in a genome that exhibit elevated rates of recombination relative to a neutral expectation. The recombination rate within hotspots can be hundreds of times that of the surrounding region. Recombination hotspots result from higher DNA break formation in these regions, and apply to both mitotic and meiotic cells. This appellation can refer to recombination events resulting from the uneven distribution of programmed meiotic double-strand breaks. Meiotic recombination through crossing over is thought to be a mechanism by which a cell promotes correct segregation of homologous chromosomes and repair of DNA damages. Crossing over requires a DNA double-stranded break followed by strand invasion of the homolog and subsequent repair. Initiation sites for recombination are usually identified by mapping crossing over events through pedigree analysis or through analysis of linkage disequilibrium. Linkage disequilibrium has identified more than 30,000 hotspots within the ...

There have been ∼23 Zip1/Rec8 traces (dots in some circumstances) per pachytene nucleus within the pCLB2-PDS5 mutant, which was between ~14.9 Rec8 traces per WT pachytene nucleus when all homologs had been paired and ~29.8 (14.9 × 2 = 29.8) Rec8 traces anticipated when all homologs had been unpaired [Fig. 1, A and B, and fig. S1A; Materials and Methods; (23)]. This means that roughly half of the homologs are unpaired within the pCLB2-PDS5 mutant. To verify the pairing defects, we built-in the TetO or LacO array into a particular chromosome place on each homologs. When TetR-inexperienced fluorescent protein (GFP) or LacI-GFP was expressed, theyd bind to the TetO or LacO array, respectively, forming a shiny spot (Fig. 1, F to H). One and two GFP spots had been noticed when the homologs had been paired and unpaired, respectively, and three or 4 GFP spots indicated sister cohesion defects (Fig. 1H). In WT, ~95% of pachytene nuclei have just one GFP spot. Nevertheless, the frequency of 1 GFP spot ...
The specific causes of non-homologous crossover events are unknown, but several influential factors are known to increase the likelihood of an unequal crossover. One common vector leading to unbalanced recombination is the repair of double-strand breaks (DSBs).[26] DSBs are often repaired using non-homologous end joining, a process which involves invasion of a template strand by the DSB strand (see figure below). Nearby homologous regions of the template strand are often used for repair, which can give rise to either insertions or deletions in the genome if a non-homologous but complementary part of the template strand is used.[26] Sequence similarity is a major player in crossover - crossover events are more likely to occur in long regions of close identity on a gene.[27] This means that any section of the genome with long sections of repetitive DNA is prone to crossover events. The presence of transposable elements is another influential element of non-homologous crossover. Repetitive regions ...

|jats:p|Although the past decade has seen tremendous progress in our understanding of fine-scale recombination, little is known about non-crossover (NCO) gene conversion. We report the first genome-wide study of NCO events in humans. Using SNP array data from 98 meioses, we identified 103 sites affected by NCO, of which 50/52 were confirmed in sequence data. Overlap with double strand break (DSB) hotspots indicates that most of the events are likely of meiotic origin. We estimate that a site is involved in a NCO at a rate of 5.9 × 10−6/bp/generation, consistent with sperm-typing studies, and infer that tract lengths span at least an order of magnitude. Observed NCO events show strong allelic bias at heterozygous AT/GC SNPs, with 68% (58-78%) transmitting GC alleles (p = 5 × 10−4). Strikingly, in 4 of 15 regions with resequencing data, multiple disjoint NCO tracts cluster in close proximity (∼20-30 kb), a phenomenon not previously seen in mammals.|/jats:p|
Homologous recombination utilizing hosts own recombination machinery is widely used for genome engineering. More specifically, a plasmid that carries homologous arms to the upstream and downstream areas of target gene(s), is introduced into the host. In order to select for a double crossover event (gene deletion), a positive selection (such as antibiotic resistance cassettes) or combination with a negative selection (such as mazF [84] or pyrE [85]) is used. Other variant methods that rely on homologous recombination also include Allele-Coupled Exchange (ACE) [86], Triple crossover [87] and scar-less, marker-less knockout or knock-in using two negative selection markers (C. thermocellum), detailed information has recently been reviewed [88]. In some instances, specific DNA sequences which can be recognized by site-specific recombinases, flanking the antibiotic resistance cassettes were introduced into the chromosome at the same time during the double crossover event. The antibiotic resistance ...

We identify a novel meiotic recombination intermediate, the single-end invasion (SEI), which occurs during the transition from double-strand breaks (DSBs) to double-Holliday junction (dHJs). SEIs are products of strand exchange between one DSB end and its homolog. The structural asymmetry of SEIs indicates that the two ends of a DSB interact with the homolog in temporal succession, via structurally (and thus biochemically) distinct processes. SEIs arise surprisingly late in prophase, concomitant with synaptonemal complex (SC) formation. These and other data imply that SEIs are preceded by nascent DSB-partner intermediates, which then undergo selective differentiation into crossover and noncrossover types, with SC formation and strand exchange as downstream consequences. Late occurrence of strand exchange provides opportunity to reverse recombinational fate even after homologs are coaligned and/or synapsed. This feature can explain crossover suppression between homeologous and structurally heterozygous
During meiosis, crossover recombination is essential to link homologous chromosomes and drive 22 faithful chromosome segregation. Crossover recombination is non-random across the genome, 23 and centromere-proximal crossovers are associated with an increased risk of aneuploidy, 24 including Trisomy 21 in humans. Here, we identify the conserved Ctf19/CCAN kinetochore sub- 25 complex as a major factor that minimizes potentially deleterious centromere-proximal crossovers 26 in budding yeast. We uncover multi-layered suppression of pericentromeric recombination by the 27 ...

Meiosis is a special cell division employed in organisms undergoing sexual reproduction. In one meiotic cycle, a single round of DNA replication is followed by two rounds of nuclear division separating homologous chromosomes (meiosis I) and then sister chromatids (meiosis II), and finally produces four daughter cells with half the number of chromosomes. Accurate separation of chromosomes depends on the successful completion of homologous recombination and formation of meiotic crossovers (COs). COs establish physical links between homologs, which play a vital role in balancing the opposite pulling force of the spindle at metaphase I (Wang and Copenhaver, 2018).. Homologous recombination is initiated by the induction of programmed double-strand breaks (DSBs). DSBs are generated by a widely conserved sporulation 11 (SPO11)-meiotic topoisomerase VIB-like (MTOPVIB) protein complex (Fu et al., 2016; Robert et al., 2016; Vrielynck et al., 2016; Xue et al., 2016). DSBs are processed by the ...
Although present in both humans and chimpanzees, recombination hotspots, at which meiotic crossover events cluster, differ markedly in their genomic location between the species. We report that a 13-base pair sequence motif previously associated with the activity of 40% of human hotspots does not function in chimpanzees and is being removed by self-destructive drive in the human lineage. Multiple lines of evidence suggest that the rapidly evolving zinc-finger protein PRDM9 binds to this motif and that sequence changes in the protein may be responsible for hotspot differences between species. The involvement of PRDM9, which causes histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation, implies that there is a common mechanism for recombination hotspots in eukaryotes but raises questions about what forces have driven such rapid change.
The first Nobel laureate who used balancers in his work was Hermann J. Muller. He used a strain of D. melanogaster that was heterozygous for an X-chromosome inversion. This suppresses crossing over between the normal X and the X carrying the inversion during meiosis. A single crossover within the inverted segment will generate a bridge at meiosis I, causing the non-crossover chromatid to preferentially segregate to the future ovum. In Mullers work the inverted X was marked with the dominant eye shape mutation, Bar, and carried a recessive lethal allele.1 A female heterozygous for the marked inverted chromosome and a wild type chromosome will produce only 1/2 the normal number of male progeny and they will all be wild type. This is because 1/2 the males die because they receive the Bar chromosome and are hemizygous for the lethal. The inversion heterozygosity prevents recombination between the Bar locus and the lethal locus. Muller used this stock, called ClB, to show that X-irradiation ...
The number of antigenic components detectable in system s such as H-2 in mice depends in part upon technical developments. It is also limited by the number of genetically different individuals available for study and a formula for deducing the number of antigenic components detectable for N unrelated systems is given in the text. If parental types and descendants derived from them by crossing over are included the possibilities are decreased. A new antigenic factor(s) has been brought to light by technical improvements and two more have been revealed by crossing over. Three cross-over combinations H-2g, H-2h and H-2i are now available as homozygotes. A preliminary map gives the order DCVK for genes within the H-2 system. The relative positions of E and K are not yet known but their genes are closely linked. The frequency of recombination between D and K was 1⋅03% for both sexes and 1⋅4% for females. Values obtained by other workers are given in the text. It is concluded that crossing over ...

Previous studies have suggested that multiple canine 3A forms exist and have distinct metabolic profiles (Ciaccio et al., 1989). The results presented here describe the isolation and initial characterization of a new canine cytochrome P450 3A enzyme, P450 3A26, from a cDNA library generated from PB-induced canine hepatic tissue. The 1.9-kbp cDNA encoding 3A26 exhibited 33 nucleotide and 22 amino acid differences when compared with canine P450 3A12. The sequence identity between CYP3A12 and CYP3A26 at the N-terminal and 5′-untranslated region, and the sequence differences found mostly at the C-terminal and 3′-untranslated region suggest that CYP3A26 might be the product of a recent gene conversion or unequal crossing over event involving CYP3A12. According to this hypothesis, the 5′ portion of the CYP3A26 gene would be derived from CYP3A12 and the 3′ portion would be derived from either an ancestral CYP3A26 gene, which was subsequently lost, or from a putative third canine CYP 3A ...

The induction, accumulation, and persistence of sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) and high SCE frequency cells (HFCs) was measured in peripheral blood lymphocytes of women with breast cancer before chemotherapy and on multiple occasions during and after therapy. Chemotherapy consisted of i.v. infusion of cyclophosphamide, Adriamycin, and 5-fluorouracil, administered on day 1 of each of approximately six 21-day cycles. This treatment resulted in a highly significant induction of SCEs (1.8-fold, P , 0.0001) and HFCs (5-fold, P , 0.0001) measured in samples obtained 1 week after the first therapy. Accumulation of lesions leading to SCEs was measured by comparing samples surrounding the first and last rounds of therapy and was significant for both SCEs and HFCs in most comparisons. Persistence of lesions leading to SCEs was evaluated at multiple times until 9 months after completion of therapy, and both SCEs and HFCs remained significantly elevated throughout this time.
