  • Gene conversion is an outcome of recombination, causing non-reciprocal transfer of a DNA fragment. (mdpi.com)
  • Gene conversion between duplicated copies in a gene family basically homogenizes genetic variation within the family, so that copy members in the family can maintain high levels of sequence homology long-term (referred to as concerted evolution). (mdpi.com)
  • KplE1, HK620 and numerous (pro)phages that integrate at the same site in enterobacteria genomes (such as the argW tRNA gene) all share a highly conserved recombination module. (mdpi.com)
  • Allelic gene conversion occurs during meiosis when homologous recombination between heterozygotic sites results in a mismatch in base pairing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recombination also occurs between homologous sequences present at different genomic loci (paralogous sequences) which have resulted from previous gene duplications. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gene conversion may also occur during recombinational repair involving a DHJ, and this gene conversion may be associated with physical recombination of the DNA duplexes on the two sides of the DHJ. (wikipedia.org)
  • GC-biased gene conversion (gBGC) is the process by which the GC content of DNA increases due to gene conversion during recombination. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, in Mus musculus, it has recently translocated such that the 3' end of the gene overlaps with the PAR region of the X-chromosome, which is known to be a recombination hotspot. (wikipedia.org)
  • sites
  • Recombinational cloning is provided by the use of nucleic acids, vectors and methods, in vitro and in vivo, for moving or exchanging segments of DNA molecules using engineered recombination sites and recombination proteins to provide chimeric DNA molecules that have the desired characteristic(s) and/or DNA segment(s).
