MeSH Heading
Gene Conversion
Tree Number(s)
G05.728.615.475
Unique ID
D005785
RDF Unique Identifier

Scope Note
The asymmetrical segregation of genes during replication which leads to the production of non-reciprocal recombinant strands and the apparent conversion of one allele into another. Thus, e.g., the meiotic products of an Aa individual may be AAAa or aaaA instead of AAaa, i.e., the A allele has been converted into the a allele or vice versa.
