Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Loci containing functionally related nucleotide sequences that lie in tandem and can be substituted for one another. The mating-type reversals observed in yeast result from removing one cassette and replacing it by another containing a different nucleotide sequence. Mating-type loci in yeast contain homeoboxes (q.v.).
