synapsis

The specific pairing of the chromatids of homologous chromosomes during prophase I of meiosis. It allows crossing-over to take place.

Synapsis

Synapsis (also called syndesis) is the pairing of two homologous chromosomes that occurs during meiosis. It allows matching-up of homologous pairs prior to their segregation, and possible chromosomal crossover between them. Synapsis takes place during prophase I of meiosis. When homologous chromosomes synapse, their ends are first attached to the ...
