Example sentences for: density-sensing

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

  • Two secreted proteins or protein complexes are involved in sensing cell density [ 5 ] . Prestarvation factor (PSF) is a glycoprotein that is secreted when cells are growing and accumulates as an indicator of the ratio of cell density relative to the supply of food [ 6 7 ] . When the ratio of Dictyostelium cells to nutrients is above a certain threshold, PSF induces the expression of several early developmental genes including discoidin I, lysosomal enzymes, and some components of the cAMP pulsing system [ 8 9 ] . Once nutrients are depleted, PSF production declines and a second cell density-sensing pathway is activated.
