Medical Definition of Displacement loop

1. A structure that can sometimes be seen on DNA which forms when a small area of the double-stranded molecule comes apart and becomes two single strands. The result is a structure shaped like the letter D. Single-stranded binding proteins are usually present to hold the strands apart for the purpose of DNA replication. (09 Oct 1997)
