mispairing

(1) A popular term for the improper alignment of two nucleic acids.
(2) Mismatching of nucleotides or noncomplementary pairing of DNA strands that occur in low-stringency hybridisation.

All reads in each sample were mapped back to the transcriptome using Bowtie 2 [19] (default parameters used, but end to end, allowing two bases of mispairing and multiple hits [less than or equal to] 20) and then used to estimate expression values for each transcript by RSEM [24].
The majority of the mutations (67 of 99) are A x T [right arrow] G x C transitions, which could result from either incoming dCTP mispairing with template A or incoming dGTP mispairing with template T.
Examination of the mutational spectra in these mutant tissues reveals a distinct preponderance of G:C transversions, an observation consistent with the fact that polycyclic aromatic compounds bind primarily to the N2 position of guanine, causing replicative mispairing that converts G:C base pairs to mutant base pairs.
They usually generate mispairing, base pair substitutions and small deletions and insertions in genomes.
These DNA fragments are produced during PCR by slipped strand mispairing mechanism and also were seen in the results of other studies (30), (31).
Characteristic genomic fluidity (e.g., facilitated by transformation, slipped-strand mispairing, or 2-component regulatory pathways) enables N.
Although the 6-thienyl group of s efficiently prevents the mispairing with the natural pyrimidine bases, y has no such functional group to exclude mispairing with the natural purine bases.
