Example sentences for: dicistronic

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

  • Our analysis reveals a number of genes that fall outside the definition of conventional gene models: neighboring genes with overlapping UTRs; genes with alternative transcripts encoding distinct coding regions; and dicistronic transcripts.

  • This includes 12 cases for which the dicistronic transcript is represented by a single cDNA.

  • In order to categorize a transcript as dicistronic, we required that each CDS exceed 50 amino acids in length and show some similarity to known proteins.

  • Among the examples we encountered while annotating the D. melanogaster genome were: the occurrence of distinct transcripts with overlapping UTRs but non-overlapping coding regions, leading us to modify our original definition of 'alternative transcript'; the existence of dicistronic genes, two or more distinct and non-overlapping coding regions contained on a single processed mRNA, requiring support for one to many relationships between transcript and peptides; and trans -splicing, exhibited by the mod ( mdg4 ) gene [ 39], requiring a new data model.

  • In some cases the dicistronic form may be less prevalent than the monocistronic forms: it has been estimated that the dicistronic Adh+Adhr transcript is only 5% as abundant as that of the Adh monocistronic transcripts [ 57].
