sticky ends
The short stretches of single-stranded DNA produced by cutting DNA with restriction endonucleases whose site of cleavage is not at the axis of symmetry. The cut generates two complementary sequences that will hybridize (stick) to one another or to the sequences on other DNA fragments produced by the same restriction endonuclease.
