  • Whatever small faults he could and did find with America, he endlessly reminded anyone who listened that the best achievement of mankind was America, whose current failings were trivial by historic standards, which was in a constant process of amelioration, and which offered its citizens the best chance in history for a good life.

  • Some of the original place names were rather crude and had to be changed to appeal to more genteel tastes, but such amelioration was sporadic.

  • It is possible that a careful phylogenetic analysis comparing rates of evolution of Meloidogyne genes acquired by HGT with those present in the more ancient nematode lineage, might shed light on the rate of amelioration of gene structure following inter-kingdom HGT.

  • 5B) would be expected to lead to significant amelioration of obese phenotypes, consistent with effects of adrenalectomy on other forms of obesity [ 3 4 5 6 7 ] . Indeed adrenalectomy initially led to a greater loss of body weight after surgery in the diet-induced obese mice (results in text above).

  • However, analyses in which synteny and phylogenetic information were also considered suggest that codon bias and G+C content are poor indicators of HGT [ 45 ] . A role for 'amelioration', whereby structural characteristics of the foreign gene are eventually homogenized to resemble those of the recipient species, has been assumed, but the rate was postulated to be the same as the rate of random, forward mutation [ 42 ] . In addition to alterations in codon usage (as reflected in G+C content), for a bacterial gene to function efficiently in a nematode presumably requires acquisition of regulatory elements (including a promoter) and structural elements (including a poly(A) tail and, optionally, a trans -spliced leader).
