Term Information [More information on DNA restriction-modification system]

Accession
GO:0009307
Name
DNA restriction-modification system
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
DNA restriction
Definition
A defense process found in many bacteria and archaea that protects the organism from invading foreign DNA by cleaving it with a restriction endonuclease. The organism's own DNA is protected by methylation of a specific nucleotide, which occurs immediately following replication, in the same target site as the restriction enzyme.
