A bouquet makes ends meet

Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol. 2001 Aug;2(8):621-7. doi: 10.1038/35085086.

Abstract

The 'chromosomal bouquet' is a polarized chromosomal arrangement that is highly conserved among eukaryotes. There have been many hypotheses about its role in the pairing of meiotic chromosomes, but until recently these have been difficult to test.
