Background of Monopolin antibody

A novel kinetochore associated protein, Mam1 (Monopolin), plays a key role in the mechanism of meiotic chromosome segregation. It controls kinetochore behavior in meiosis I and defines a functional basis by which sister kinetochores are directed toward the same pole in meiosis I.
