Example sentences for: orthologous

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

  • Members of a gene family that share a common ancestor as a result of a duplication event are denoted as being paralogous, distinguishing them from orthologous genes in different genomes, which share a common ancestor as a result of a speciation event.

  • Although in this case evidence for expression of either strand by northern analysis was not obtained, it was subsequently found to be orthologous to miR-137, and thus accepted as a genuine miRNA.

  • Thus, the vast majority of proteins in each analyzed group of species seem to evolve in accord with the rate-constancy prediction, suggesting that the functional constraints among orthologous proteins remain largely unchanged.

  • The sequences were compared with the sequences of subclones of the genomic BDNF clone c241 which we had previously identified and partially sequenced [ 27 ] . Five of the ten sequenced 5' RACE clones contained the already known and previously cloned 5' exon [ 4 ] . This exon was named exon 1c because it contains a 39 nucleotide segment in which 37 nucleotides are identical with a segment in rat exon III, suggesting the two exons are orthologous (see table 1 and figure 2a) [ 25 ] .

  • Thus, by detecting orthologous matches to parts of genes we will be able to identify additional multimodular proteins.
