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

  • In our previous studies, we have shown that insulin inhibits the rate of SP-A gene transcription after a 24-hour exposure [ 7 ] . In this study, we evaluated the effects of insulin on the transcription rate of the human SP-A and α-actin genes at several time-points earlier than those used in our previous studies.

  • CC-1065 (Figure 1) is among the most potent antitumor agents discovered [ 9 10 11 12 13 ] . It binds to double-stranded B-DNA within the minor groove with a sequence preference for 5'-d(A/GNTTA)-3' and 5'-d(AAAAA)-3', and alkylates the N3 position of the 3'-adenine with its left-hand CPI segment [ 14 15 ] . CC-1065 also inhibits gene transcription by interfering with binding of the TATA box-binding protein to its target DNA [ 16 ] . Despite its high potency and broad spectrum of antitumor activity, CC-1065 cannot be used in humans because it causes delayed death in experimental animals [ 17 ] . To pursue compounds possessing the potent antitumor activity but devoid of the toxic side effects of the parent compound, many CC-1065 analogues have been synthesized [ 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 ] .

  • While IL-1 promotes cartilage degradation through MMP synthesis and inhibits matrix deposition by reducing Col2A1 gene expression, TGF-β has the opposite effect on chondrocytes [ 3].

  • Released NF-κB dimers then translocate to the nucleus, bind to its cognate DNA elements, and induce the expression of target genes [ 23 24 25 ] . Activated, nuclear translocated, NF-κB transcription factor has been documented in the mouse embryo from the 1-cell stage onward [ 26 27 ] . Activated NF-κB translocation into the nucleus, directly or indirectly, effects the transcriptional control of over 150 target genes [ 28 ] . NF-κB enhances cell proliferation by stimulating the expression of cytokines such as TNF, IL-1, IL-2, IL-6, and IL-8, among others [ 28 29 ] ; NF-κB inhibits apoptosis by inducing TRAF and clAP expression which suppresses Caspase 8 activation [ 30 ] , and by inhibition of p53 transactivation [ 31 32 ] .

  • Interleukine 13 inhibits inflammatory cytokine production.
