ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the study conducted by the authors related to global transcriptome analysis of two ameiotic1 alleles in maize anthers. It states that during sexual reproduction meiosis insures that progeny receive half their genetic information from each parent, thus maintaining the correct ploidy from generation to generation.

    Polo-like kinases (Plks) are increasingly recognized as key regulators of mitosis, meiosis and cytokinesis. In agreement with a broad range of proposed functions during cell division, Plks are subject to complex temporal and spatial control. Recent findings are uncovering the mechanisms of Plk...

    Stepwise and regionally controlled resolution of sister chromatid cohesion is thought to be crucial for faithful chromosome segregation during meiotic divisions.

    The mitotic kinetochore of the budding yeast contains a number of proteins which are required for chromosome transmission but are non-essential for vegetative growth. We show that one such protein, Iml3, is essential for meiosis, in that the absence of this protein results in reduced spore...
