Expression of GFP::SYP-3 largely complements syp-3(ok758), but some meiotic nondisjunction is detected above the N2 background (85% embryonic viability; ~1% male self-progeny;). GFP::SYP-3 expression is readily detected in spermatocytes and oocytes in the germline, and localizes to the interface between paired homologous chromosomes during most of meiotic prophase.
