Example sentences for: disruption

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

  • In view of PTEN's potent growth-inhibitory capacity, we conclude from our study that the increased expression and activity of endogenous PTEN in response to the disruption of cell-matrix interactions contributes to the maintenance of the anchorage-dependent phenotype of normal cells.

  • Gene-disruption studies in Rhodobacter capsulatus indicate that loss of the PRC-H subunit results in disruption of the reaction center and the light-harvesting complex-1 and loss of photosynthetic growth [ 26, 27].

  • Wnt signaling is known to play a critical role in the development of the brain, and the midbrain and cerebellum do not form in animals lacking Wnt-1 [ 23 ] . Furthermore, targeted disruption of the frizzled-4 gene results in cerebellar abnormalities in mice [ 24 ] . Transgene expression from the PrP promoter is extremely low during embryonic development, with high-level postnatal expression largely restricted to neurons and glia of the CNS [ 25 ] . Transgenic mice expressing either wild-type or mutant β-catenin were generated so that a range of pathway activation could be examined.

  • Disruption of nuclear architecture by inclusions containing Rab24(D123I)

  • This protein acts as inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases (the "cell cycle engine" [ 50 ] ), and its elevated expression has been consistently demonstrated in different cell types after the disruption of cell-matrix interactions (compare Figure 1and [ 31 32 51 52 ] ). Furthermore, p27 Kip1is an established target of PTEN signaling, i.e., its activity has been found increased after the forced expression of exogenous PTEN [ 53 54 55 56 ] . In combination with the data presented in this manuscript, it therefore appears that PTEN contributes to anchorage-dependent growth control by a two-fold approach: the dephosphorylation of the signaling molecule FAK in combination with the stimulation of the cell cycle inhibitor p27 Kip1.
