Example sentences for: paracentric

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

  • In this case, a small (approximately 14 kb) region containing the ftz coding sequence and flanking non-coding DNA is inverted between the Antp and Scr genes relative to D. melanogaster . Maier et al . [ 25] provide hybrization data for a similar rearrangement in the ftz locus of D. hydei , another member of the subgenus Drosophila . It is likely that the other rearrangement breakpoints we observe also result from paracentric inversions, the predominant form of genome rearrangement in Drosophila [ 26].

  • The homology of Muller's elements can be extended to A. gambiae [ 23, 31]; however it is clear that a substantial fraction of rearrangements between these species must occur by other mechanisms than paracentric inversion.

  • Genome rearrangement in Drosophila typically occurs through paracentric inversion, allowing the homology of chromosome arms to be maintained over millions of years.

  • We can directly confirm the nature of one rearrangement ( D. littoralis ftz ) as a paracentric micro-inversion since both breakpoints are contained within a single fosmid clone.
