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

  • The neighbor-joining (Figure 3a) and maximum-likelihood trees we constructed, in combination with the fact that mammalian KCNQ1 and Anopheles KCNQ2 gene products share a striking 75% identity (despite the divergence of protostomes and deuterostomes close to 700 million years ago), suggest that gene loss in Drosophila , specifically loss of an ancestral KCNQ2 (mammalian KCNQ1 ), is the cause of this difference, rather than gene expansion in Anopheles , which may be the case for the Kv3 and Irk3 (Figure 3b) gene families.

  • 2 ; however, from the tree (Figure 3b) it appears that the divergence of Irk2.

  • This also appears to be the case for Irk2.

  • 1 and Irk2.

  • Our analysis, based on maximum-likelihood and neighbor-joining algorithms, suggests that gene duplication in Anopheles is the most likely explanation for the greater number of Irk3 genes in mosquito.
