TABLE 2.

Average observed and expected recombination rates if all spontaneous homologous recombination events are sister chromatid exchanges in the hprt gene and SCneo construct in S8SN.11 cellsa

LocusRecombination rateTarget size (kb)Expected recombination rate (target size × 6/6 × 109)
SCneo2.5 ± 0.8 × 10−611 × 10−6
hprt5.5 ± 0.3 × 10−655 × 10−6
  • a The average rate in the full genome is six sister chromatid exchanges/cell. Data are from reference 23.
