meiotic mismatch repair Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description A system for the identification and correction of base-base mismatches, small insertion-deletion loops, and regions of heterology that are present in duplex DNA formed with strands from two recombining molecules. Correction of the mismatch can result in non-Mendelian segregation of alleles following meiosis. (Gene Ontology, GO_0000710)
