Homologous recombination in plants

  title={Homologous recombination in plants},
  author={Holger Puchta and Paul T Swoboda and Barbara B. Hohn},
In plants three different approaches have been used to study homologous DNA recombination; extrachromosomal recombination (ECR) between transfected DNA molecules, intrachromosomal recombination (ICR) between repeated genes integrated into and resident at the genome and recombination between introduced DNA and homologous sequences in the genome (gene targeting). ECR is efficient (10−1 to 10−3) and occurs mainly during a limited time period early after transfection. It proceeds predominantly via… CONTINUE READING
