Example sentences for: intron-encoded

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

  • The generalized group II intron secondary structure consists of six helical domains emerging from a central wheel [ 1 2 ] . Some group II introns are capable of self-splicing; however for efficient splicing in vivo , the intron-encoded ORF or host-encoded splicing factors are required [ 3 ] . Mobile group II introns encode a reverse transcriptase/maturase, with the coding region generally located in domain IV.

  • The finding that κ-κ' is not essential is similar to a finding by Costa et al ., 2000 for the Pl.LSU/2 intron in which a deletion of the entire ID(ii)a stem loop containing the κ element was still capable of splicing [ 12 ] . Additionally, this element is absent from the introns S.p.cox2 I1, P.a.cox1 I4, A.m.cox1 I3 and P.a.cox1 I1, along with Id(ii)1 [ 13 ] . The loss of the interaction might also be compensated for by the intron-encoded protein.

  • The second transesterification results in exon ligation with the release of lariat RNA complexed with the intron-encoded protein.

  • This ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex is an endonuclease, which can initiate reverse splicing into an intron-less target site in a process known as retrohoming [ 3 ] . After the intron RNA reverse splices into one strand of the double-stranded DNA, the intron-encoded protein cleaves the other strand at position +9 or +10 downstream of the intron insertion site, and the generated 3' end of the second strand is used as a primer for reverse transcription of the inserted intron RNA.
