Abstract

During the meiotic cell cycle, a single round of DNA replication precedes two nuclear divisions. Recent work has shown that the proteins controlling the mitotic cell cycle are either replaced by homologous proteins only expressed during the meiotic cell cycle or modulated by meiosis-specific factors to bring about this specialized cell cycle.
