Heterozygotes as Intermediates of Bacteriophage Recombination
The specificity of the interaction between the complementary strands of DNA molecules provides an attractive way of thinking about the structure of the joint between the two parental contributions of a recombinant DNA molecule. Several lines of evidence demonstrate that heteroduplex regions, in which one strand of DNA is contributed by one of the parental molecules and its complementary strand by the other, are a prominent feature of the primary products of genetic recombination.
