Example sentences for: degrade

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

  • Because the M6P/IGF2R is believed to sequester and degrade IGF-II [ 10 ] , a decrease in M6P/IGF2R could result in decreased degradation and hence increased bioavailability of IGF-II to the IGF-I receptor, which mediates the growth-promoting effect of IGF-II.

  • These enzymes include glycosidases, such as lysozymes, that attack the polysaccharide backbone, and peptidases that degrade the cross-linking peptides [ 8].

  • Following two hour incubation at 42°C, 4 μl 50 mM EDTA and 2 μl 10 N NaOH was added to each tube and incubated at 65°C for 20 minutes to degrade RNA.

  • Several lines of evidence suggest that the SCF pathway is also conserved in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe . Pcu1p, a Cdc53p/CUL1-related protein, was shown to associate with two different F-box/WD repeat proteins, Pop1p and Pop2p, when overexpressed [ 18 ] . In addition, genetic studies demonstrated that both of these F-box proteins are simultaneously required for efficient destruction of Rum1p and the replication initiator Cdc18p [ 18 19 20 ] . Rum1p is a Sic1p-analogous CDK inhibitor, which accumulates in G1, but is degraded as cells enter S phase [ 21 22 ] . Failure to degrade Rum1p is the major phenotypic defect of pop1 and pop2 deletion strains, which leads to disturbance of normal cell cycle progression, resulting in polyploidy [ 18 19 20 23 ] . Based on the genetic data and the biochemical observation that Pop1p and Pop2p interact when overexpressed, a putative SCF Pop1p-Pop2pcomplex was proposed, which would contain the heterooligomerizing F-box proteins Pop1p and Pop2p bound to SCF core components [ 18 20 ] .

  • To thermally degrade organics, place glassware in a high temperature oven at 400°C for 30 min.
