- Reciprocal translocation
A type of chromosome rearrangement involving the exchange of chromosome segments between two chromosomes that do not belong to the same pair of chromosomes. A specific reciprocal translocation might, for example, involve the swap of material between chromosomes 1 and 19.
- Recombinant clones
Clones containing recombinant DNA molecules.
- Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee (RAC)
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) panel that oversees gene-therapy research in the U.S.
- Recombinant DNA molecules
A combination of DNA molecules of different origin that are joined using recombinant DNA technology.
- Recombinant DNA technology
A series of procedures that are used to join together (recombine) DNA segments. A recombinant DNA molecule is constructed from segments of two or more different DNA molecules. Under certain conditions, a recombinant DNA molecule can enter a cell and replicate there, either on its own or after it has been integrated into a chromosome.
