A term used in both classical and molecular genetics. 1. In classical genetics: An organism or cell that is the result of meiotic recombination. 2. In molecular genetics: A hybrid molecule made up of DNA obtained from different organisms. Typically used as an adjective, e.g. recombinant DNA.
An organism which, because of DNA recombination, contains a combination of alleles differing from either of its parents. DNA that contains sequences from different sources, usually the result of in vitro laboratory procedures. Individual gamete or chromosome resulting from recombination.
Genetically engineered follicle stimulating hormone as opposed to FSH extracted from the urine of post menopausal women. It is synthesized in vitro by cells into which genes encoding for FSH subunits have been inserted. Brand names are Gonal-F and Follistim.
an organism whose genome contains integrated genetic material from a different organism. Also used in relation to compounds produced by laboratory or industrial cultures of genetically engineered living cells. Recombinant compounds often are altered versions of naturally occurring substances.
Genes work as directions for making proteins. When scientists combine genetic material from two or more different sources, the resulting gene is said to be recombinant. If that gene is expressed (used to make a protein), the resulting protein is also described as recombinant.
A term used in both classical and molecular genetics. 1. In classical genetics: An organism or cell that is the result of recombination (crossing-over), e.g., Parents: AB/ ab and ab/ ab; recombinant offspring: Ab/ ab. 2. In molecular genetics: A molecule containing DNA from different sources. The word is typically used as an adjective, e.g., recombinant DNA.
An individual, meiotic product, or single chromosome in which genetic materials originally present in two individuals end up in the same haploid complement of genes. The reshuffling of genes can be either by independent segragation, or by crossing over between homologous chromosomes. For example, a human may pass on genes from both parents in a single haploid gamete.
The result of a crossover in a doubly heterozygous parent such that alleles at two loci that were present on opposite homologs are brought together on the same homolog. The term is used to describe the chromosome as well as the animal in which it is present.
Made through genetic engineering, which is also called gene splicing or recombinant DNA technology. By putting animal or plant genes into the genetic material of bacteria or yeast cells, these microorganisms can be turned into "factories" to make proteins for medical uses.
Refers to compounds produced by laboratory or industrial cultures of genetically engineered living cells. The cells' genes have been altered to give them the capability of producing large quantities of the desired compound for use as a medical treatment. Recombinant compounds often are versions of naturally occurring substances.
An organism or cell in which genetic recombination has taken place; typically, material produced by genetic engineering. Recombination is the process by which progeny derive a combination of genes different from that of either parent
