Example sentences for: inhibits

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

  • USF2 inhibits C/EBP-mediated induction of the RIIβ promoter

  • 4-aminopyridine, at millimolar concentrations, completely inhibits K +currents conducted by heterologously expressed KCNA channels and native GC I Kur , but lacks significant effects on native GC I Ks [ 4 12 13 20 ] . Kusaka showed that antagonism of 4-AP sensitive slowly inactivating delayed rectifier K +currents suppressed both basal and luteinizing hormone (LH)-stimulated progesterone production [ 21 ] . In this report, we extend those findings by demonstrating 4-AP inhibition of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)-stimulated progesterone production, and by elucidating the underlying mechanisms.

  • 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 functions of Boi1/Boi2 appear to be linked to those of Cdc42 and Rho3, which are Rho-type GTPases that are important for polarized cell growth [ 4 5 6 7 8 9 ] . Boi1 and Boi2 display two-hybrid interactions with both wild-type and mutationally activated Cdc42 but not with a mutant version of Cdc42 that is predicted to be impaired in the ability to bind nucleotide, suggesting that Boi1 and Boi2 may associate with the GTP-bound ("active") form of Cdc42 [ 1 ] . Further evidence that some function of Boi1 is linked to that of Cdc42 is that overexpression of Boi1 inhibits bud emergence and that this inhibition can be suppressed by overexpression of Cdc42 [ 1 2 ] . RHO3 can serve as a multicopy suppressor of the lethality caused by deletion of BOI1 and BOI2 [ 1 2 ] . These findings are consistent with the possibilities that Boi1 and Boi2 are targets of Cdc42 that promote cell growth in a manner that is regulated by Rho3.

  • We have shown in a quantitative manner that in all three cell types, MMP-1 and MMP-13 are inducible with IL-1, and that CDDO inhibits the expression of these collagenases, with optimal inhibition being observed after 24 hours of pretreatment with CDDO.
