Term Information [More information on synapsis]

Accession
GO:0007129
Name
synapsis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
chromosomal synapsis, homologous chromosome pairing at meiosis, chromosomal pairing
Definition
The meiotic cell cycle process where side by side pairing and physical juxtaposition of homologous chromosomes is created during meiotic prophase. Synapsis begins when the chromosome arms begin to pair from the clustered telomeres and ends when synaptonemal complex or linear element assembly is complete.
