Example sentences for: inhibits

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

  • Phosphorylated eIF2α competitively inhibits the guanine nucleotide exchange factor eIF-2B, which is responsible for the recycling of eIF2 by catalyzing the conversion of eIF2-GDP to the active form eIF2-GTP [ 36 ] . Thus the overall initiation of translation is inhibited when eIF2α becomes phosphorylated.

  • Nova-1 regulates the alternative splicing of the pre-mRNAs encoding neuronal inhibitory glycine receptor α2 (GlyR α2) [ 23 ] . The ability of Nova-1 to activate exon selection in neurons is antagonized by a second RNA-binding protein, brPTB (brain-enriched polypyrimidine tract-binding protein), which interacts with Nova-1 and inhibits its function [ 24 ] . DAZAP1 could function in a similar manner by binding to DAZL and inhibiting its function.

  • The PPARγ agonist, 15d-PGJ 2 , functions as a general inhibitor of microglial functions [ 56 57 58 ] . For example, this agent inhibits the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase, tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin-1 β and major histocompatibility complex class II in activated microglia.

  • indicating a possible role for HSP70 in fertilization [ 41 ] ). An egg-surface sperm receptor, identified on sea urchin oocytes, bears a sperm-binding domain with sequence similarity to HSP70 and its recombinant protein binds sperm and inhibits fertilization in vitro [ 42 ] . Among the other molecular chaperones described here, calreticulin has been found in oocytes from a number of species [ 43 ] . Interestingly, Munoz-Gotera et al.

  • In addition to the effects of IL-4 on antibody production, this cytokine inhibits Th1 responses, including IFN-γ and macrophage production of proinflammatory cytokines [ 25, 26].
