Example sentences for: impairing

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

  • The results indicate that in rat pancreatic β-cells, PMA modulates insulin secretion through a mixed mechanism: increases insulin secretion by activation of PKC, and meanwhile decrease insulin secretion by impairing β-cell excitability in a PKC-independent manner.

  • The ndr1-1 allele was pictured as analogous to an electrical switch where the contact is in an open position, impairing early SA accumulation.

  • PP2 is a serine/threonine phosphatase which dephosphorylates JNK during inflammatory cell signaling [ 19 ] , while MKP5 is a member of the dual specificity phosphatase family which selectively dephosphorylates stress activated MAP kinases including JNK [ 20 ] . The overexpression of these two phosphatases might contribute in part to the resistance of HL60/TLK286 by impairing the activity of JNK.

  • The Ozone Criteria Document notes that "ozone affects vegetation throughout the United States, impairing crops, native vegetation, and ecosystems more than any other air pollutant" (US EPA, 1996).

  • Earlier studies describing the underlying molecular mechanisms involved in the HIV-1 inhibitory effect of the candidate microbicide CAP indicated that this compound remains bound to HIV-1, impairing virus infectivity by blockade of binding sites for cellular coreceptors CXCR4 and CCR5 [ 8 ] . Results reported here further extend these findings and show that: 1) there is synergism between sCD4 and CAP for inhibition of virus infectivity; 2) CAP binding to HIV-1 leads to conformational changes in viral envelope glycoproteins resulting in the expression of functionally inert six-helix bundle structures.
