[Synapsis in single and double heterozygotes for partially overlapping inversions in chromosome 1 of the house mouse].

[Article in Russian]


Electron microscopic analysis of synaptonemal complexes (SC) in single and double heterozygotes for the partially overlapping inversions In(1)1Icg, In(1)1Rk and In(1)12Rk in the Chromosome 1 of the house mouse reveals a dependence of synapsis and synaptic adjustment on the size and location of the inversions and their interaction. In(1)1Icg contains the insertions of inverted repeats Is(HSR: 1C5)1Icg and Is(HSR: 1I)2Icg as well as inverted euchromatic region. The synaptic adjustment of the D loops by shortening of asynapsed parts of the lateral elements of SC belonging to the insertions occurs at late zygotene-early pachytene stage. After that the synaptic adjustment of the inversion loops takes place. A delay in adjustment was found in diheterozygotes In(1)1Icg/In(1)1Rk and In(1)1Icg/In(1)12Rk. Morphological alterations of the asynapted terminal segments of lateral elements preventing synaptic adjustment were found in single and double heterozygotes for In(1)1Rk and In(1)12Rk. Correspondence between the size of asynapted regions and the probability of association of XY and heteromorphic bivalents was revealed.
