Example sentences for: paralogous

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

  • The conventional view, pioneered by Susumu Ohno, holds that a gene duplication produces two functionally redundant, paralogous genes and thereby frees one of them from selective constraints.

  • Arabidopsis was used as the primary outgroup (95 out of 100 proteins in the four-taxon analysis, 94 out of 100 proteins for the five-taxon analysis, all proteins in Brugia and Trichinella analyses); yeast was used as the outgroup when Arabidopsis sequences were unavailable or paralogous.

  • Weak selection acting on synonymous sites or differences in mutation bias among related species might potentially result in homogeneity of codon usage in genes within one genome, which would translate into a much greater heterogeneity of codon vocabulary in orthologous genes compared to paralogous genes.

  • Dispersed paralogous gene clusters containing SLC4Agenes

  • n /K s ratios for paralogous versus orthologous genes was approximately the same for the predicted secreted and membrane proteins as it was for the complete analyzed gene sets (Table 4), indicating that the acceleration of evolution probably is an inherent feature of duplicated genes.
