Example sentences for: adaptors

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

  • Apollo is populated with data via a set of adaptors.

  • The PCR-based enrichment of differentially expressed sequences depends on the number of tester molecules with adaptors ligated to their ends.

  • The GOLD proteins belonging to the second architectural category could function as double-headed adaptors that interact with both a specific protein (via the GOLD domain) and different cellular lipid membranes.

  • Cas is a protein which migrates with an apparent mass of approximately 130 kDa, with a N-terminal SH3 domain, a central substrate domain (SD) with up to 15 tyrosines which can be phosphorylated, a C-terminal region with a proline-rich region, and two tyrosine phosphorylation sites capable of binding Src kinases (Src binding domain (SBD)) [ 6 18 ] . The latter SBD domain regulates the ability of Src to activate the serum response element, as well as in the phosphorylation of the SD of Cas by Src [ 18 19 20 ] . The substrate domain controls adhesion and migration and the majority of the tyrosines within this domain are of the sequence YQXP (5) or YDXP (10), which when phosphorylated, bind to the adaptors c-crk, nck and AND-34 [ 16 21 22 23 ] . The importance of these molecules in Cas function is unclear, however c-crk seems to be critical in the regulation of adhesion and migration mediated by Cas.

  • Tyrosine phosphorylation of the substrate domain leads to the recruitment of other downstream adaptors such as crk and nck, as well as other downstream effectors possessing SH2 domains, and signaling events attributed to this domain include activation of the JNK MAPK pathway and control of adhesion and migration of cells [ 6 10 16 38 44 ] . We constructed a chimera between a kinase that phosphorylates Cas in vivo and the substrate domain of Cas, in order to determine events regulated by this domain.
