Similarity of Domain Organization of Proteins in Phylogenetically Distant Organisms as a Basis of Meiosis Conservatism

Similarity of Domain Organization of Proteins in Phylogenetically Distant Organisms as a Basis of... The cytological mechanism of meiosis is very conservative in all eukaryotes. Some meiosis-specific structural proteins of yeast, nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila, and mammals, which play identical roles in cells during meiosis, do not have homology of the primary structure, but their domain organization and conformation are similar. The enzymes of meiotic recombination in yeast and plants have similar epitopes. These facts suggest that the similarity of the higher level of organization of the meiosis-specific proteins allows these proteins to form similar subcellular structures and produce similar cytological picture of meiosis and similar functions of these subcellular structures. Finally, this leads to a conservative scheme of meiosis in evolutionally distant eukaryotes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Developmental Biology Springer Journals
