Example sentences for: abasic

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

  • Both enzymes cleave only one DNA strand in a duplex and bacterial Xth cleaves ssDNA containing an abasic site [ 42 ] . The additional contacts huAPE1, compared to DNase 1 (Figure 6), makes 3' to the damage site and to the opposite strand lower its turnover rate and its potential to cleave normal DNA.

  • APEs are essential for mammalian cell growth and bacterial survival in the presence of ionizing radiation and DNA mutagens [ 6 ] . They initiate repair of an abasic DNA site by cleaving the phosphodiester backbone 5' of the phosphodeoxyribose.

  • P2s have two abasic residues at the 5' end to reduce primer-dimer formation (unpublished data).

  • Although motif 12 contains several highly conserved residues that, according to mutagenesis results (Table 1) contribute to APE1 activity, only His309 is very close to the abasic site in the DNA.

  • A contact plot of huAPE1 with the DNA in the 1DE8 crystal structure (Figure 5) shows that motifs 1-3,5-8, and 10-12 all have residues close to the substrate, an oligonucleotide containing an abasic site (AP-DNA).
