synteny


Also found in: Dictionary, Wikipedia.

synteny

 [sin´tĕ-ne]
the presence together on the same chromosome of two or more gene loci whether or not in such proximity that they may be subject to linkage. adj., adj synten´ic.

syn·te·ny

(sin'te-nē),
The relationship between two genetic loci (not genes) represented on the same chromosomal pair or (for haploid chromosomes) on the same chromosome; an anatomic rather than a segregational relationship.
[syn- + G. tainia, ribbon]

synteny

/syn·te·ny/ (sin´tĕ-ne) the presence together on the same chromosome of two or more gene loci whether or not in such proximity that they may be subject to linkage.synten´ic

synteny

(sĭn′tə-nē)
n.
The condition of two or more genes being located on the same chromosome whether or not there is demonstrable linkage between them.

syn·ten′ic (-tĕn′ĭk) adj.

synteny

[sin′tənē]
Etymology: Gk, syn + taina, ribbon
(in genetics) the presence on the same chromosome of two or more genes that may or may not be transmitted as a linkage group but that appear to be able to undergo independent assortment during meiosis. The term is used primarily in human genetics, in which linked inheritance patterns are more difficult to determine. See also linkage.

syn·te·ny

(sin'tĕ-nē)
The relationship between two genetic loci (not genes) represented on the same chromosomal pair or (for haploid chromosomes) on the same chromosome; an anatomic rather than a segregational relationship.
[syn- + G. tainia, ribbon]

synteny

two or more LOCI that lie on the same CHROMOSOME are syntenic (literally on the same ribbon). Correlation of the presence or absence of each of a set of chromosomes with the presence or absence of specific gene products is synteny testing.

synteny

conserved gene order along the chromosomes of different species.
