Example sentences for: acetylation

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

  • It is noteworthy that the mechanism of SAHA in G1 cell growth arrest may target the expression of specific proteins involved in DNA synthesis as it inhibited E2F-1 and PCNA, but not E2F-4, suggesting that SAHA may cause different levels of histone acetylation at distinct regions of the genome.

  • Both severe hepatitis and acute liver failure have been attributed to SSZ [ 25 26 27 28 ] . Patients with SSZ hepatotoxicity demonstrate a prompt recurrence of symptoms upon rechallenge with SSZ or sulfonamide [ 15 29 30 31 ] . Susceptibility to the toxic effects of SSZ and other sulfonamides may be due to the interaction of metabolic pathways regulating N-acetylation and specific detoxification of the metabolites of the drug [ 32 33 ] . However, it remains unclear if genetic differences in drug metabolizing enzyme expression may increase the risk of SSZ toxicity.

  • Although SAHA increases acetylation of histones H3 and H4, it is not known whether SAHA is able to inhibit all HDAC activities of all types of histones, including HDAC1, or whether the profound increase in Rb2/p130-E2F-4 nuclear complex after SAHA treatment may have an alternative pathway other than recruitment of HDAC1 activity.

  • Thus, histone deacetylase inhibitors - Butyrate and Trichostatin A - can rescue MHCII-inducibility in bladder carcinoma cells [ 14 ] and restore constitutive MHCII expression in plasmacytoma cells [ 35 ] . In addition to acetylation, transcriptional activity of chromatin is also regulated through phosphorylation (reviewed in Ref.

  • 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.
