Dissection of the molecular mechanisms underlying the transition through the complex events of the meiotic process requires the use of gene mutants or RNAi-mediated gene silencing. A considerable number of meiotic mutants have been isolated in plant species such as Arabidopsis thaliana, maize or rice. However, structural chromosome mutants are also important for the identification of the role developed by different chromosome domains in the meiotic process. This review summarizes the contribution of studies carried out in plants using structural chromosome variations. Meiotic events concerning the search of the homologous partner, the control of number and distribution of chiasmata, the mechanism of pairing correction, and chromosome segregation are considered.
