One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
attributive Relating to or denoting an organism, cell, or genetic material formed by recombination.
- ‘The proportion of recombinant plasmids in each sample was then estimated by comparing the two numbers.’
- ‘Backcross males having recombinant X chromosomes were genotyped and scored for fertility.’
- ‘DNAs were isolated from individuals that were homozygous for recombinant haplotypes.’
- ‘Overall, we observed 116 recombinant chromosomes in these experiments.’
- ‘This scheme allowed unequivocal identification of four out of six possible recombinant phenotypes.’
- ‘Our ability to detect doubly recombinant chromosomes depends on the genotype of the homolog after fertilization.’
- ‘Homozygous phenotypes of the recombinant lines were analyzed.’
A recombinant organism, cell, or piece of genetic material.
- ‘All genotypes were checked for Mendelian inheritance and double recombinants.’
- ‘They concluded that either double crossovers do not occur or recombinants are selected against.’
- ‘Previously identified recombinants within a single gene were omitted and only one strain was included from groups of linked infections.’
- ‘Because this region contains no essential genes, haploid recombinants containing this deletion are viable.’
- ‘First, we scanned each individual chromosome for double recombinants.’
- ‘Fluorescent genes from jellyfish have also been added to organisms in this manner to show which are successful recombinants.’
- ‘Among these gametes, some will be exact copies of the parental haplotypes while others are recombinants.’
- ‘These basidiospores are recombinants containing genetic material from both mating partners.’
