The molecular biology of meiosis in plants.
Meiosis is the cell division that reshuffles genetic information between generations. Recently, much progress has been made in understanding this process; in particular, the identification and functional analysis of more than 80 plant genes involved

Interorganelle interactions and inheritance patterns of nuclei and vacuoles in budding yeast meiosis.
Many of the mechanisms by which organelles are inherited by spores during meiosis are not well understood. Dramatic chromosome motion and bouquet formation are evolutionarily conserved characteristics of meiotic chromosomes. The budding yeast bouquet

Callose synthesis during reproductive development in monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous plants.
Callose, a linear β-1,3-glucan molecule, plays important roles in a variety of processes in angiosperms, including development and the response to biotic and abiotic stress. Despite the importance of callose deposition, our understanding of the roles

Recent advances in understanding of meiosis initiation and the apomictic pathway in plants.
Meiosis, a specialized cell division to produce haploid cells, marks the transition from a sporophytic to a gametophytic generation in the life cycle of plants. In angiosperms, meiosis takes place in sporogenous cells that develop de novo from somati

Deformation of nuclei and abnormal spindles assembly in the second male meiosis of polyploid tobacco plants.
The bipolar spindle is a major cytoskeletal structure, which ensures an equal chromosome distribution between the daughter nuclei. The spindle formation in animal cells depends on centrosomes activity. In flowering plant cells the centrosomes have no

Dynamics of nuclear receptor gene expression during Pacific oyster development.
Nuclear receptors are a highly conserved set of ligand binding transcription factors, with essential roles regulating aspects of vertebrate and invertebrate biology alike. Current understanding of nuclear receptor regulated gene expression in inverte

meiosis II transition in pig oocytes.
Polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1), as a characteristic regulator in meiosis, organizes multiple biological events of cell division. Although Plk1 has been implicated in various functions in somatic cell mitotic processes, considerably less is known regarding

Analysis of inter-examination differences in sperm nuclear vacuoles among male patients with infertility.
We analyzed the inter-examination differences in sperm nuclear vacuoles among male patients with infertility. We enrolled 56 male patients with infertility who underwent multiple semen analyses and high-magnification observation of the sperm head. A

Wrestling with Chromosomes: The Roles of SUMO During Meiosis.
Meiosis is a specialized form of cell division required for the formation of haploid gametes and therefore is essential for successful sexual reproduction. Various steps are exquisitely coordinated to ensure accurate chromosome segregation during mei
