Reciprocal Meiotic Recombination

The cell cycle process in which double strand breaks are formed and repaired through a double Holliday junction intermediate is known as Reciprocal Meiotic Recombination. This process results in the equal exchange of genetic material between non-sister chromatids in a pair of homologous chromosomes. The reciprocal recombinant products ensure the proper segregation of homologous chromosomes during meiosis I and create genetic diversity.
