Intermolecular recombination events were monitored in Arabidopsis thaliana lines using specially designed recombination traps consisting of tandem disrupted beta-glucuronidase or luciferase reporter genes in direct repeat orientation. Recombination frequencies (RFs) varied between the different lines, indicating possible position effects influencing intermolecular recombination processes. The RFs between sister chromatids and between homologous chromosomes were measured in plants either… CONTINUE READING
