Definitions for "Recombinant DNA technology"
A procedure for manufacturing proteins by manipulation of DNA segments. Used to produce large quantities of enzymes for use in enzyme replacement therapy.
Procedures used to join together DNA segments in a cell-free system (an environment outside a cell or organism) to make recombinant DNA. The techniques involved in the construction, study and use of recombinant DNA molecules.
Procedure used to join together DNA segments in a test tube. Under appropriate conditions, a recombinant DNA molecule can enter a cell and replicate there, either autonomously or after it has become integrated into a chromosome. The technique of cutting DNA from one organism and inserting it into the DNA of another, invented in 1972, created the field of genetic engineering.
