Term Name: gene conversion at mating-type locus Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • gene conversion at mating-type locus, DNA double-strand break formation
  • gene conversion at mating-type locus, DNA double-strand break processing
  • gene conversion at mating-type locus, DNA repair synthesis
  • gene conversion at mating-type locus, termination of copy-synthesis
  • heteroduplex formation involved in gene conversion at mating-type locus
  • strand invasion involved in gene conversion at mating-type locus
Definition: The conversion of the mating-type locus from one allele to another resulting from the recombinational repair of a site-specific double-strand break at the mating-type locus with information from a silent donor sequence. There is no reciprocal exchange of information because the mating-type locus copies information from the donor sequence and the donor sequence remains unchanged. (3)
