Term Information [More information on unidirectional conjugation]

Accession
GO:0009291
Name
unidirectional conjugation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
mating
Definition
The process of unidirectional (polarized) transfer of genetic information involving direct cellular contact between a donor and recipient cell; the contact is followed by the formation of a cellular bridge that physically connects the cells; some or all of the chromosome(s) of one cell ('male') is then transferred into the other cell ('female'); unidirectional conjugation occurs between cells of different mating types. Examples of this process are found in Prokaryotes. Source: ISBN:0387520546
