Example sentences for: orthologs

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

  • These two proteins, Xenopus N1/N2 [ 36 ] and human NASP (nuclear autoantigenic sperm protein) [ 41 ] , are closely related to each other and may be orthologs [ 46 ] . This analysis shows that NPM3 is more closely related to NO29 and the nucleoplasmins from Xenopus than to the nucleophosmins from multiple species.

  • The archaeal members of the TS family share with their bacterial orthologs all the conserved residues involved in catalysis (Figure 4).

  • Probably the most obvious of such characteristics is the presence-absence of representatives of the analyzed species in orthologous groups of genes, and recently, at least three groups have employed this approach to build genome trees, primarily for prokaryotes [ 8 9 10 ] . An alternative way to construct a genome tree involves using the mean or median level of similarity among all detectable pairs of orthologs as the measure of the evolutionary distance between species [ 11 ] . Yet another possibility involves building species trees by comparing gene orders.

  • Both these proteins additionally contain a Myb-related helix-turn-helix domain termed the SANT domain [ 22] at their carboxyl terminus and a further carboxy-terminal conserved α-helical extension restricted to orthologs of RSC8p and SWI3p.

  • In contrast, the trees based on the distributions of the identity level of orthologs appear to be more meaningful phylogenetically as indicated by the recovery of established high-level phylogenetic groups of bacteria, such as Proteobacteria and Gram-positive bacteria.
