Example sentences for: dictyostelium

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

  • GCN2 of yeast and mammals is a known sensor of amino acid starvation and regulates cellular responses to such starvation [ 24 25 ] . Using degenerate primers and PCR and database searching identified two GCN2-like genes in Dictyostelium , ifkA and ifkB . Thinking that one or both of these genes may play a role in sensing amino acid starvation and in initiating development, we carried out the work described herein to examine their functions.

  • We reasoned that a GCN2-like protein might be involved in sensing amino acid starvation in Dictyostelium and in regulating the growth to development transition.

  • The overall sequence identity between yeast GCN2 and the predicted Dictyostelium IfkA protein is 32%.

  • In Dictyostelium , a major shift in the polysome profile occurs as a result of starvation and initiation of development [ 19 23 ] . The percentage of mRNA associated with polysomes drops from about 80-90% in growing cells to 50-60% within several minutes of removal of the food source.
