Example sentences for: decoy

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

  • Thus, our data suggest that the tyrosine phosphorylated Cas SD acts as a decoy for endogenous Cas binding proteins and blocks signaling via crk to the activation of JNK, as well as transformation of cells by the oncogene v-crk.

  • However, in their studies the major decoy receptor for TRAIL, DcR1, was found expressed in trophoblast, not in decidua, while another decoy receptor, DcR2, was expressed by placental macrophages.

  • The ability of the tyrosine phosphorylated Cas SD to act as a decoy suggests that while tyrosine phosphorylation of the substrate domain of Cas may be important for its function in assembling downstream signals, specific localization of Cas may also be critical for its downstream functions.

  • Since the sequence of this gene predicts that it encodes a TNF decoy receptor, a likely possibility is that it acts to dampen immune responses to the fetal semi-allograft.

  • These data suggest that the tyrosine phosphorylated substrate domain of Cas acts as a decoy for binding to v- and c-crk thereby interfering with signaling to JNK activation and transformation.
