What is a chimeric gene? - MOLBIOL 2C03

This quote was added by louistern34
A chimeric gene is one in which the regulatory and coding sequences are derived from two or more genes, and combined in a novel manner. Combining the regulatory code from sequences from one gene and the regulatory sequences from another often results in a gain of function allele due to ectopic expression.
