Example sentences for: adapter

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

  • While analyzing the size distribution of the IVT product we noted a low molecular weight species that roughly corresponds in size to the primer adapter.

  • Studies in budding yeast identified SCF Cdc4p, an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex that mediates the ubiquitylation of the CDK inhibitor Sic1p [ 3 4 ] . SCF Cdc4pconsists of at least four proteins: the cullin Cdc53p, the RING domain protein Hrt1p/Rbx1p/Roc1p, the adapter protein Skp1p, and Cdc4p (reviewed in [ 1 ] ). Cdc4p contains two sequence motifs, which are conserved in a wide variety of so-called F-box proteins: C-terminal WD-repeats that are involved in binding the substrate Sic1p in a phosphorylation-dependent manner, and a central F-box [ 5 ] that interacts with Skp1p [ 6 7 ] . Cdc53p in turn binds to Skp1p and Hrt1p/Rbx1p/Roc1p, which bridges Cdc53p with the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme Cdc34p/Ubc3p [ 6 8 9 10 11 12 ] . In vitro reconstitution demonstrated that SCF Cdc4p, Cdc34p, E1, ubiquitin, and ATP are sufficient to mediate Sic1p polyubiquitylation [ 6 7 ] .

  • An anchored primer adapter was designed that contains a 5' T7 promoter and a 3' polyA (18 bps in length) stretch terminating in a single C, G, or T base.

  • Several large coiled-coil proteins were also found associated with the cytoplasmic surface of the Golgi apparatus, and two of them have been shown to function in the docking of vesicles to the Golgi cisternae [ 16 17 18 ] . AKAPs are adapter proteins that attach protein kinase PKA pathways to cytoskeletal elements.

  • Btk was shown to be required for normal phosphorylation of a novel adapter protein, named BCAP, which couples BCR-activated PTKs to PI 3-kinase activation [ 17].
