Example sentences for: alphab

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

  • In the single alpha-crystallin knockout mice, the remaining alpha-crystallin may fully or partially compensate for some of the functions of the missing protein, especially in the lens, where both alphaA and alphaB are normally expressed at high levels.

  • None of these morphological differences have been reported in the single alphaA or alphaB knockout mice.

  • Stress proteins have been shown to be expressed in non-stressed cells during development and differentiation [ 25 ] . Hsps were shown to be expressed during the differentiation of mammalian osteoblasts and promelocytic leukemia cells [ 26 ] . In addition, hsp expression has been shown to accompany growth arrest in human B lymphocytes [ 27 ] and macrophage differentiation of HL 60 cells [ 28 ] . During myogenic differentiation, mRNA for alphaB increases in conjunction with the induction of mRNA for myogenin, the earliest known event in myogenesis [ 29 ] . The addition of exogenous alpha-crystallin to primary bovine lens epithelium was shown to induce rapid changes in cell shape, leading to the formation of lentoid bodies [ 21 ] . These studies strongly suggest that the hsp family of proteins has other functions in addition to protecting proteins and cells during stress.

  • This process did not appear to have proceeded normally in lenses lacking alphaA and alphaB.

  • Alpha-Crystallin is comprised of two polypeptides, alphaA-crystallin (alphaA) and alphaB-crystallin (alphaB), which share 55% amino acid sequence homology [ 1 ] . They are the most abundant proteins in lens fiber cells [ 2 3 ] and exist as heteroaggregates of approximately 800 kDa that can undergo inter-aggregate subunit exchange [ 4 ] . The expression of these two proteins in the lens epithelium, however, is not uniform throughout different regions of the anterior epithelium.
