Example sentences for: acta

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

  • Three strains of L. monocytogenes were used; wild type (10403S), a mutant for the transcriptional regulation of virulence genes, prfA (DP-L1075) [ 33], and a mutant deficient for intracellular motility, actA (DP-L1942) [ 30].

  • To this end, we have examined the global transcriptional response of a human intestinal epithelial cell line, Caco-2, to infection by L. monocytogenes and isogenic mutants which are disrupted in the actA or prfA gene.

  • For the prfA analysis, wild-type and actA were a single class.

  • The prfA gene codes for a transcriptional regulator, which controls the virulence genes hly, plcA, plcB, mpl and actA , as well as negatively regulating itself [ 31, 32].

  • Detailed comparisons of the response to wild-type and actA mutant infections were designed to uncover gene-expression programs specific to the motility phase of the infection, when bacterially directed actin polymerization is induced to move the bacteria through the cytoplasm.
