Example sentences for: acyl

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

  • The only biochemically characterized eukaryotic representative of this superfamily is LRAT, which transfers an acyl group from the sn-1 position of phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) to retinal, to form retinyl esters [ 27, 42, 43].

  • Although more work is required to examine this issue thoroughly, our results suggest that the large differences in potency between free fatty acids and fatty acyl coenzyme A esters seen using pNPP may not extend to all protein substrates.

  • The modules each contain an acyl transferase (to load the extender unit onto the enzyme), as well as a ketosynthase and an ACP domain, together with exactly those reductive activities needed to generate the required pattern of modification of the chain at each step of elongation.

  • Others have proposed that fatty acyl coenzyme A esters are potential physiologic regulators of PP5, since these compounds stimulate pNPP hydrolysis by PP5 in vitro at physiologically relevant concentrations and are approximately 10-fold more potent than their free fatty acid counterparts [ 21 ] . Although we confirmed this observation using PP5 and pNPP (data not shown), in our hands similar levels of AA and arachidoyl coenzyme A were required for half-maximal stimulation of 32P-MBP dephosphorylation in the case of both Ppt1p and PP5.

  • The incorporation of 20:4n6 and 22:4n6 following feeding of the AA-rich FUNG diet, and the incorporation of 20:5n3, 22:5n3, and 22:6n3 following feeding of the EPA/DHA-rich FISH diet, into whole brain, hippocampal, and hepatic phospholipid (PL) pools (Table 1) was further evidence the diets were consumed, resulting in significant changes to PL acyl composition.
