Example sentences for: defense-related

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

  • As even E. coli has been shown to induce plant defense-related gene expression [ 21 ] , it should not be surprising that bacteria can elicit changes in plant gene expression via many different signaling pathways.

  • There is evidence that the H-box motif is involved in developmental regulation of flowering, but there is no report of its involvement in stress/defense responses [ 88 89 ] . However, a combination of the H-box motif and the G-box motif has been shown to be important for binding of bZIP transcription factors to rapidly induce defense-related genes [ 47 90 91 ] . The significant over-representation of these two motifs together in the promoter sequences of the stress cDNA collection suggests that combinatorial interactions between these two cis -elements may also be important in the regulation of stress-responsive genes.
