Prophase I is divided into five sub-phases: leptotene, zygotene, pachytene, diplotene and diakinesis. Another sub-phase called preleptonema is sometimes . Leptotene; Zygotene; Pachytene; Diplotene; Diakinesis. Prometaphase I; Metaphase I; Anaphase I. C) Pachytene- In this stages, there is the chaismata formation takes place where crossing over Leptotene, Zygotene, Pachytene, Diplotene and Diakinesis.

These microtubules only exist during mitosis, the other spindle types are polar and kinetochore microtubules. Nucleolus and the nuclear membrane dissolve.

Leptotene, which is also known as leptonema is the first stage of Prophase I. Development, This makes the chromosomes look thicker pachy- is Greek for thick. It is also much longer in meiosis than in mitosis.

This page was last modified on 28 Novemberat This interdigitating structure consisting of antiparallel microtubules is responsible for pushing the poles of the spindle apart. In male human spermatogenesisproducing of four haploid cells 23 chromosomes, 1N from the two haploid cells 23 chromosomes, 1Neach of the chromosomes consisting of two sister chromatids produced in meiosis I.

Premature dyad separation in meiosis II is the major segregation error with maternal age in mouse oocytes. Follicle formation – occurs during the second trimester in humans. In the developing human ovary, oocytes remain at the diplotene stage from fetal life through postnatal childhood, until puberty when the lutenizing hormone LH surges stimulate the resumption of meiosis.


Normal chromosomal attachment in early mitosis, is by only one of the two sister kinetochores attached to spindle microtubules monotelic attachment later sister kinetochores attach to microtubules arising from opposite spindle poles amphitelic attachment.

Homologs are still paired at this point. This phase overlaps with cytokinesis, the division of the cell cytoplasm. The dyads align on the metaphase plate and spindle fibres attach to the kinetechores.

Diplotne dictyotene stage is the resting diakonesis of the oocyte.

Stages of the meiotic prophase of the oocyte

If the error is in a sex chromosome, the inheritance is said to be sex-linked. Retrieved from ” https: Bora regulates meiotic spindle assembly and cell cycle during mouse oocyte meiosis. How can a haploid cell undergo mitosis? This process of sliding toward the ends is known as terminalization.

Crossing over occurs between two non-sister chromatids of homologous chromosomes. Personal tools Log in. Meiosis and Oogenesis [17].

Discussion View source History. It lasts from birth up to sometime between the twelfth and fiftieth year of age, depending on the moment of the atresia of dia,inesis follicle or of the ovulation.

Paachytene a result of this, gametes contain the incorrect number of chromosomes and they are said to be aneuploid gametes [4]. Zygotene is also known as zygonema.

Sequential actin-based pushing forces drive meiosis I chromosome migration and symmetry breaking in oocytes. See all questions in Haploid vs Diploid. This table allows an automated computer search of the external PubMed database using the listed “Search term” text link. Retrieved from ” https: Meiosis is reductional division.


In meiosis, how does prophase I differ from prophase II?

External Links Notice – The dynamic dipltoene of the internet may mean that some of these listed links may no longer function. In the Meiosis of the oocyte an in-between stage is added: Meiosis 1 is separated into lepgotene stages. Nuclear membrane and nucleoli start disappearing. This is followed by metaphase. Bivalent is more commonly used at an advanced level as it is a better choice due to similar names for similar states a single homolog is a ‘univalent’, and three homologs are a ‘trivalent’ [9].

These chromosomal arms are only seen when the chromosome is folded for cell division. Diakinesis is the final substage of prophase 1. However, they cannot separate completely because they are still connected by two strands of DNA at each of the points where exchanges took place. In the diakinesis a further condensation of the chromosomes and, simultaneously, a further separation of the chromatids takes place that, however, still hang together at the chiasmata.
