Example sentences for: paramutagenicity

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

  • However, the endogenous p1-rr allele of maize did acquire paramutagenicity after exposure to a specific P1 -enhancer transgene [ 11 ] . Against this background we investigated the possible relay of an imprint triggered by the Arabidopsis C73 trans-silencer locus, asking specifically whether targets trans-silenced by the C73 locus (a) acquired trans-silencing activity, and (b) were able to pass their imprint on to a naive target locus in a heritable fashion.

  • This includes the L72 locus, which has a reduced penetrance of cosuppression that may be attributable to its pericentromeric location [ 27 ] . Intriguingly, both trans-silencer loci, C73 and C97, belong to the 'complex' group, adding weight to the proposition that, like paramutagenicity, trans-silencing activity is encoded epigenetically.
