Example sentences for: oric

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

  • First, the putative oriC region of M. paratuberculosis was amplified, sequenced and compared with M. avium and other bacteria.

  • While these sequencing efforts have revealed a conserved gene order in the oriC of Gram-positive bacteria [ 11 ] , the nucleotide and amino acid identity between M. paratuberculosis and M. avium in this region is much stronger when compared to other mycobacteria and other Gram-positive bacteria (see Table 2).

  • The M. smegmatis coding sequence, gnd , has similarity to the 6-phophogluconate dehydrogenase genes in E. coli , but the mycobacterial protein is predicted to be about 200 amino acids shorter than the E. coli homolog . The length of non-coding intergenic regions between rpmH - dnaA and dnaA - dnaN is well conserved among the bacteria shown in figure 2. In many bacteria where a functional oriC has been identified, this gene order is conserved and oriC is adjacent to the dnaA gene [ 9 10 19 ] .

  • The sequence immediately flanking the dnaA gene is considered the origin of chromosomal replication, or oriC region [ 9 10 ] . This region contains several genes that encode proteins required for basic cellular functions, including the protein subunit of RNase P (RnpA), ribosomal protein L34 (RpmH), the replication initiator protein (DnaA), the beta subunit of DNA polymerase III (DnaN), the recombination repair protein RecF, and the DNA gyrase proteins GyrA and GyrB.

  • The oriC of Gram-positive bacteria typically contains 10 - 30 of these DnaA boxes, often found in non-coding regions flanking the dnaA gene.
