Example sentences for: discoideum

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

  • More myosin-II is recruited to the furrow cortex when D. discoideum cells are flattened by agar overlay when compared to cells grown under standard conditions on the surface of a culture plate [ 18 ] . Flattening a cell by agar overlay may increase the apparent stiffness of the cell by introducing tension into the cortex from increased hydrostatic pressure.

  • We apply the simple mathematical relationship proposed by Yoneda and Dan [ 4 ] to the geometry of dividing Dictyostelium discoideum cells.

  • Although substantial biochemical analysis has been performed with this family of D. discoideum MHCKs, there is relatively little information on the cellular distribution of the endogenous MHCKs in vivo.

  • pTX-MKA1, pMKB-GFP, pTX-MKC1 were transformed into either Ax2 cell line [ 37 ] or HS1 myosin null cells, a strain of D. discoideum with its endogenous mhc A gene deleted [ 38 ] to generate GFP-MHCK-A, -B, and -C cells, respectively.

  • In muscle, there is load-dependent recruitment of myosin-II cross-bridges; in other words, the duty ratio of muscle myosin-II can vary (reviewed by [ 27 ] ). For our calculations, we considered the duty ratio to be 0.006, which is the value measured for unloaded D. discoideum myosin-II.
