transrenal DNA

transrenal DNA

(trans″rēn′ăl, tranz″) [ trans- + renal],

tr-DNA

Short sequences of nucleic acid base pairs, typically less than 180 base pairs in length, that are excreted and detected in the urine. They have been used as a means of diagnosing a variety of malignant and infectious diseases.
