How can you use “allele-specific” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Meanwhile, findings of population heterozygote advantage should not be interpreted as confirming the mechanism of allele-specific overdominance.

  • Thus, allele-specific methylation patterns can be distinguished using this gene.

  • A study of Marek's disease virus in chickens seems to demonstrate allele-specific overdominance at the MHC using defined genetic backgrounds, but the report does not clearly specify how homogeneous the genetic background was in these experiments [ 21 ] .

  • Finally, DEK binds differentially to specific Y-box sequences found in HLA-DQA1(*0101 and *0501 alleles) and HLA-DRA , consistent with observations of DQA1 gene-specific cell-surface expression [ 36 ] and allele-specific promoter activity [ 33 ] . The specificity of rDEK binding to these and other, related Y-box sequences (including HLA-DQB and HLA-DRB alleles associated with the DR4 haplotype) may correlate with a predisposition to autoim-mune disease seen with certain HLA haplotypes.

  • Figure 1shows that allele-specific overdominance (the biological phenomenon of interest) and population heterozygote advantage (the finding of epidemiological studies such as those cited above) are two different things.
