Abstract

Crossover recombination is essential for homolog segregation during meiosis. In contrast to spontaneous mitotic recombination, meiotic recombination is intrinsic being initiated by the programmed formation of DNA double-strand-breaks. In addition, the tendencies of the core recombination machinery to utilize a sister-chromatid template and to produce a noncrossover outcome are counteracted by meiosis-specific factors, which ultimately ensure the formation of at least one crossover per homolog.
