Example sentences for: acetylation

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

  • As SAHA treatment increased histone (H3 and H4) protein and acetylation levels in both cell lines, this may have altered the association of histones with DNA, thereby altering nucleosomal conformation and stability [ 27, 44].

  • We identified a novel mechanism for SAHA in cell growth arrest through inhibition in DNA synthesis, concomitant with significant increases in the nuclear localization of pRb-2/p130 associated with E2F-4, decreases in key molecules in DNA synthesis (E2F-1, PCNA and p21), and increases in histone H3 and H4 protein and acetylation levels.

  • SAHA was able to increase histone H3 and H4 protein and acetylation levels, and caused a profound decrease in the protein levels of key molecules, PCNA and E2F-1, essential for DNA synthesis.

  • These cofactors interact with nuclear receptors in a ligand-dependent manner and enhance transcriptional activation via histone acetylation/methylation and recruitment of additional cofactors such as CBP/p300 [ 89 ] . CBP/p300 has been implicated in the functions of a large number of regulated transcription factors based primarily on physical interaction and the ability to potentiate transcription when overexpressed [ 90 ] . In the case of nuclear receptors, the interaction with CBP/p300 is ligand-dependent and relies on the conserved nuclear receptor functional domain, AF-2 (activation function 2).

  • It is not known at this point whether specific mutations of p53 alter the degree of histone acetylation in cells.
