integron

(redirected from Integrons)

integron

a GENETIC element that has the ability to acquire unrelated GENES, such as ANTIBIOTIC resistance genes, by site-specific integration events. Integrons have been found in PLASMIDS and TRANSPOSABLE GENETIC ELEMENTS and are probably important in the EVOLUTION of GENOMES.
