Example sentences for: orthologs

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

  • A total of 1,879 pairs of orthologous proteins, one from S. cerevisiae and one from S. pombe , were identified (see Methods), and for 1,004 of these, there was data on protein-protein interactions of the S. cerevisiae member in the MIPS database [ 5 ] . For these 1,004 orthologous pairs, the number of protein-protein interactions detected for the S. cerevisiae protein was plotted against the calculated substitution rates between orthologs (Figure 1a).

  • For identifying real orthologs, I look for best bidirectional hits (BBHs), such that one ORF is the closest relative of the other and vice versa.

  • Pairs of paralogs and orthologs with K

  • The moeB/BR/Z sequences under study are a mixture of orthologs and paralogs, and a combined study of their phylogeny is not possible, so we limited our study to moeZ sequences.

  • Despite the relatively low sequence similarity to bacterial DHPS, all archaeal orthologs have the conserved catalytic residues identified in DHPS (Figure 2) and are confidently predicted, by the hybrid-fold-recognition method, to assume the same fold as DHPS from Pneumocystis carinii and Staphylococcus aureus whose crystal structures have been determined.
