Wikipedia

  1. Restriction site

    Restriction sites, or restriction recognition sites, are located on a DNA molecule containing specific (4-8 base pairs in length) sequences of nucleotides, which are recognized by restriction enzymes. These are generally palindromic sequences (because restriction enzymes usually bind as homodimers), and a particular restriction enzyme may cut the sequence between two nucleotides within its recognition site, or somewhere nearby.

  1. restriction site

    A restriction site, also known as a restriction recognition site, is a specific sequence of DNA recognized and cut by a particular restriction enzyme. These sites are typically palindromic, meaning the DNA sequence reads the same backwards and forwards, and can range from 4 to 8 nucleotides long. The ability to recognize and cut at these sites forms the basis of many molecular biology techniques.
