Descriptor variación de fase
Entry term(s) fasevariones
regulones de fase variable
Scope note: Mecanismo adaptativo utilizado por los microorganismos para evitar la detección por parte del huésped o para adaptarse a los cambios del entorno mediante la activación y desactivación aleatorias y rápidas de un gen por medio de diversos mecanismos entre las fases de activación y desactivación. Por ejemplo, MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS tolerante a los fármacos surge mediante mutaciones reversibles rápidas en el gen glpK mediante variación de fase.

Scope note: An adaptive mechanism used by microbes to avoid detection by the host or adapt to changes in environment by randomly and rapidly switch on and off of a gene by various mechanisms. between on and off phases. For instance, drug tolerant MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS arises though rapid reversible mutations in the glpK gene through phase variation.
