Los estadios finales de la meiosis II no presentaron micronucleos que pudieran indicar perdida de material genetico y ademas, las tetradas generadas mostraron forma y tamano normales, condiciones que contribuyen a sugerir su viabilidad.
Esta banda de organulos permitiria el reparto equitativo de estos elementos celulares entre las celulas posmeioticas y ademas, dado que se presenta por lo general en especies con esporogenesis o microsporogenesis de tipo simultaneo, podria evitar interferencias entre los husos meioticos durante la meiosis II (Bednara et al.

In this context, the term "meiosis" refers to the process whereby a nucleus divides by two divisions (meiosis I and meiosis II) into four gametes.
Our use of three-color FISH allowed us to compare the frequencies of various disomic and nullisomic sperm within the same samples and to assess whether the disomy and diploidy errors occurred during meiosis I (X-Y-21 and X-Y-21-21) or meiosis II (X-X-21,Y-Y-21, X-X-21-21, Y-Y-21-21).
