Example sentences for: degradation

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

  • Near the end of endo-replication in Spirotrichs many transposons and transposon-like sequences are eliminated by precise excision (Internal Eliminated Sequences or IESs [ 23 ] ). Excision directly precedes massive chromatid fragmentation and de novo telomere formation ("chromosome healing" [ 9 ] ) and the degradation of IESs and of "spacer" DNAs that lie between blocks of sequences destined for different MAC chromosomes.

  • The phosphorylated beta-2 receptor enhances the binding of beta-arrestin, which not only uncouples the receptor from the signal transduction process but also serves as an adapter protein that mediates entry into the internalization pathway [ 5 ] , as well as serving as a platform for additional signaling pathways [ 6 ] . The mechanisms of beta-2 adrenergic receptor down-regulation appear to involve both an increase in the rate of degradation of the receptor as well as a decrease in the levels of beta receptor mRNA [ 7 ] . Down-regulation of the beta-2 receptor is, in part, due to trafficking of the beta-2 receptor to lysosomes via the clathrin-coated pit endosomal pathway [ 8 9 ] .

  • An identical pattern of fragmentation was essentially observed for all the Golgi autoantigens examined except that the overall kinetics of native protein degradation was slower (data not shown).

  • PGE 2 , however, could potentially modulate the proteolytic cascade, resulting in collagen degradation at a number of steps.

  • It is not known whether hypoxia interferes with translation or degradation of iNOS protein.
