Example sentences for: intein

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

  • The T. acidophilum intein was discovered while sequencing the catalytic subunit of the archaeal ATPase/ATPsynthase from T. acidophilum for systematic purposes [ 24 ] . More recently, the complete genome sequences of T. acidophilum [ 25 ] and T. volcanii [ 26 ] have been reported.

  • During this process, called homing, the gene encoding the intein-free homolog is cleaved by the endonuclease at or close to the intein integration site.

  • Any deletion of the intein from the gene itself needs to be precise, because any alteration of the amino acid sequence in the catalytic site is likely to result in a non-functioning enzyme.

  • The small intein has persisted in Thermoplasma apparently without homing.

  • Either the whole A-ATPase catalytic subunits was transferred, or the intein alone spread as a selfish genetic element.
