Example sentences for: intragenic

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

  • Since we can not tell which of two neighboring genes is regulated by each of the 102 intergenic modules we predict, we are obliged to label 237 genes (adding the 33 genes with intragenic modules) as potentially patterned.

  • We have shown that polony technology is an improved method to study, and potentially diagnosis, cancer [ 22 ] . Specifically, polony technology was successfully applied to both detect intragenic mutations in well-defined mutational hotspots in key cancer genes as well as determine if loss of heterozygosity of these same genes had occurred.

  • The rec12-117 mutant was isolated in a genetic screen; the rec12-117 mutation reportedly confers a 100-fold or greater reduction of intragenic recombination and a 6-fold reduction of intergenic recombination [ 33 ] . To define more precisely the requirement for Rec12 in meiotic chromosome dynamics, we used gene replacement to generate a null ( rec12-D15 ) mutation and a mutation in the putative active site tyrosine ( rec12-Y98F ). We then determined the effects of these mutations upon intergenic (crossover) recombination within intervals of chromosomes

  • The M6P/IGF2R is also mechanistically involved in the genesis of human cancer [ 6 20 21 22 23 24 ] . M6P/IGF2R loss of heterozygosity coupled with intragenic loss-of-function mutations in the remaining allele is a common event in human cancers [ 6 20 21 22 ] . Inheritance of a tandem repeat polymorphism in the 3' UTR of M6P/IGF2R furthermore predicts for enhanced susceptibility to oral cancer [ 25 ] . Moreover, tumor cell growth is inhibited when M6P/IGF2R expression is restored to normal while it is increased when gene expression is reduced [ 26 27 28 29 ] . The results of these mutational and functional studies clearly demonstrate that the M6P/IGF2R possesses the characteristics necessary to be classified as a tumor suppressor gene [ 30 ] .
