Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
attachment of meiotic spindle microtubules to kinetochore +   
chromosome localization to nuclear envelope involved in homologous chromosome segregation +   
homologous chromosome movement towards spindle pole in meiosis I anaphase  
homologous chromosome pairing at meiosis +   
meiotic centromeric cohesion protection in anaphase I 
meiotic metaphase I homologous chromosome alignment +   
A cell cycle process whereby homlogous chromosomes are positioned in a specific order and orientation at the metaphase plate (spindle equator) by the spindle machinery and centromere/kinetochore arrangement during meiosis I chromosome segregation. This alignment ensures that each daughter cell will receive the correct number of chromosomes during cell division.
