Example sentences for: amino-acid

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

  • The seven amino-acid periodicity of the residues is consistent with a coiled-coil protein motif.

  • For phylogenetic analysis, the fact that some amino acids (such as arginine) change rapidly and predictably with GC content slightly undermines the idea that amino-acid sequences are more stable than nucleotide sequences: pairs of species with convergent GC contents might also evolve convergent protein sequences, especially at functionally unconstrained positions.

  • The cause(s) of the increased rate of amino-acid substitution in predicted genes in the D. willistoni lineage remain to be clarified, but are most probably related to increased rates of protein evolution detected previously in the D. saltans lineage [ 36], which have been explained by a shift in base composition in the common ancestor of the D. saltans and D. willistoni groups (see below, and [ 37]).

  • Under this scenario, synonymous divergence could be substantially underestimated for paralogous, but not for orthologous genes in our dataset, falsely suggesting an acceleration of evolution of amino-acid substitutions (larger K n /K s values) in paralogous genes.

  • Likewise, the sequence level information is displayed for each evidence type and annotation, either as nucleotides or amino-acid residues (Figure 6).
