Intragenic recombination during meiosis has been proposed as an important mechanism for the generation of new genetic variants on malaria antigens, and it was also one of the most important factors considered to explain the generation of new alleles in the MSP1 context [22, 34].
hominis specimens were used for calculation of haplotype diversity (Hd), number of haplotypes, number of polymorphic and segregating sites, intragenic linkage disequilibrium (LD), and intragenic recombination rates by using DnaSP version 5.10.00 (www.ub.es/dnasp/).
A larger spectrum of intragenic short tandem repeats improves linkage analysis and localization of intragenic recombination detection in the dystrophin gene: an analysis of 93 families from Southern Italy.
Premawansa et al (11) have reported the presence of third type of allele in Sri Lankan isolates which had, Sal-1 like block immediately followed by variable numbers of glutamine repeats which were followed by a Belem like sequence indicating that this allele originated as a result of intragenic recombination.
The main cause of protanopia and deuteranopia lies in the unequal intergenic and intragenic recombination of the L- and M-cone pigment genes.
Marshall et al (25) and Eisen et al (31) also found the evidence of intragenic recombination in ama-1 gene.
The four-gamete test (Hudson and Kaplan, 1985) showed no evidence for intragenic recombination. How ever, at least two recombination events were detected across all gene arrangements (1380 bp), one between nucleotide positions 99 and 501, and another between positions 510 and 925.
Intragenic recombination was evident within ospC sequences.
Intragenic recombination of a single plant pathogen gene provides a mechanism for the evolution of new host specificities.
Intragenic recombination between porin genes of the same allelic family is likely occurring in nature because mosaic gene structure has been reported in porB genes.
These mutation and mutation-like events include single allele changes, intragenic recombination, unequal crossing over, element transpositions, DNA methylation, paramutation, and gene amplification.
