Example sentences for: inteins

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

  • The T. acidophilum intein shows significant sequence similarity to the inteins found in the A-ATPase catalytic subunits of Pyrococcus.

  • 1) shows that the T. acidophilum and T. volcanium inteins do not contain an endonuclease domain.

  • Figure 2shows that the inteins are located in the regions of these very conserved proteins [ 22 ] that have the lowest substitution rates.

  • Multiple sequence alignments of diverse intein sequences identified eight motifs composed of moderately conserved residues [ 18 28 ] . The A-ATPase A subunit of the Thermoplasma and Pyrococcus intein multiple sequence alignment (with manual modification) is shown in figure 1. The T. acidophilum intein (173 amino acids long) is among the shortest inteins known, and the alignment with other inteins reveals the absence of sequences homologous to the typical endonuclease motifs.

  • This indicates that not only the exteins, but also the inteins themselves are recognizably homologous.
