Synapsis

Initiation of recombination precedes and is required for synapsis. The synaptonemal complex forms when transverse filaments of Sycp1 link axial/lateral elements of sister chromatids to a central element comprising Syce1, Syce2, and other proteins (Allen et al. 1996, Liu et al. 1996, Kovalenko et al. 1996, Mahadevaiah et al. 2001, Crackower et al. 2003, de Vries et al. 2005, Costa et al. 2005, Hamer et al. 2006, Bolcun-Filas et al. 2007, Hamer et al. 2008, Bolcun-Filas et al. 2009, Prieto et al. 2009). The order of assembly is unknown.
