Name a cell that is found arrested in diplotene stage for months and years. Comment in 2-3 lines how it completes cell cycle?
The cells found arrested in diplotene stage for months and years are oocyte cells of vertebrates such as tailed and tailless amphibians, birds and insects.
The chromosomes of these cells transform into the Lampbrush form during the diplotene stage of meiotic prophase due to an active transcription of many genes. These chromosomes produce large amounts of RNA for the oocyte and most of the genes present in the DNA loops are being expressed actively.
