Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. The telomeres of both homologous and nonhomologous chromosomes can easily self-associate, perhaps as a simple consequence of their structure--repeated arrays of a sequence at the ends of all of an organism's chromosomes. As discussed in a recent Perspective, these associations are sufficiently strong that the separation of telomeres presents a special problem for the meiotic and mitotic segregational systems. In this issue (page 1252), Conrad et al. report a gene (NDJ1) that encodes a telomere-associated protein required for meiotic chromosome segregation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
