Example sentences for: orthologous

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

  • For orthologous proteins, it is expected that they will form monophyletic clades without any intervening paralogs or proteins from distantly related species.

  • However, because of preferential divergence within the loop, orthologous miRNAs from species of an appropriate evolutionary distance (such as D. melanogaster and D. pseudoobscura ) show an equal or greater amount of change within the loop than on the non-miRNA-encoding arm (Figure 2a, class 3).

  • Each orthologous protein-sequence set was aligned and the evolutionary distances between sequences within the sets were computed.

  • Consistent with this prediction, a negative correlation has been reported between protein evolutionary rates, which were determined from evolutionary distances between orthologous proteins from yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans , and the number of protein-protein interactions (i.e.

  • Symmetrical best hits in these BLAST searches (expectation value ≤ 10 -3) were taken to be orthologs [ 20 ] . Pairs of orthologous proteins were aligned using the ClustalW program [ 21 ] and their substitution (evolutionary) rates were calculated using the gamma distance correction [ 22 ] . The data on protein-protein interactions for the
