During gamete formation, the enzyme recombinase participates during

  • metaphase - I

  • anaphase-II

  • prophase-I

  • prophase-II

Answer

C.

prophase-I

The pachytene stage of prophase I of meiosis I is characterized by the appearance of recombination nodules, the sites at which crossing over occurs between non-sister chromatids of the homologous chromosomes. Crossing over is the exchange of genetic material between two homologous chromosomes. It is also an enzyme-mediated process and the enzyme involved is called recombinase.
