polymorfism, restriktionsfragmentlängd (RFLP)

restriction fragment length polymorphism [ENGLISH]

A type of polymorphism that results from variation in the DNA sequence recognized by restriction enzymes which are bacterial enzymes used by scientists to cut DNA molecules at known locations.

polymorfism, restriktionsfragmentlängd [SWEDISH]

En typ av polymorfism som beror på variation i den DNA-sekvens som identifieras av restriktionsendonukleaser. (De kan känna igen specifika sekvenser av DNA och där kapa dem till DNA-fragment i en specifik storlek). Det används för genetisk typning, en metod som används för att skapa DNA-profiler oftast i samband med kriminologi.
