Example sentences for: organ-specific

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

  • About 40% of tobacco genes were expressed in all organs examined (leaf, petal, anther, ovary, root, stem) and 10-40% of the genes were tissue or organ-specific by the criterion of RNA complexity.

  • A complication of this interpretation is that some members of gene families will cross-hybridize, making it difficult to resolve whether there are large numbers of organ-specific genes within such families.

  • To gain greater confidence in deciphering organ-specific gene-expression patterns, gene-product classification focused on 326 probes with a more than fourfold ratio difference in signal intensities in at least one organ compared to the reference (Figure 2).

  • The apparent low number of tissue- or organ-specific genes observed in maize is also consistent with other microarray studies indicating that only around 25% of Arabidopsis genes displayed significant (> 2-fold) difference in three organ comparisons: seed, root and leaf [ 40] or root, leaf and flower [ 11].

  • The organ-specific expression pattern of these genes may spark interest in defining their physiological functions.
