Definitions for "Ligation"
The formation of a phosphodiester bond between two adjacent bases separated by a single-strand break. Catalyzed by DNA ligase.
The joining of two linear nucleic acid molecules by the formation of phospho-diester bonds. In cloning experiments, a restriction fragment is often ligated to a linearized vector molecule using T4 DNA ligase.
Joining of DNA fragments to produce a single DNA molecule. Ligases are enzymes which perform this reaction. Fragments of plant DNA are ligated into bacterial plasmids during the cloning of probes for use for RFLP analysis.
