Example sentences for: paralog

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

  • As shown in Figure 2, both Anabaena and Nostoc exhibit the same relative order of operonic trp genes: trp Aa• trp Ab → trp D → trpEa → trpEb → trpB . trpAa and trpAb are fused, as indicated in Figure 2with a filled bar and in the text by the bullet in the notation: trpAa • trpAb . In Anabaena, qor (encoding NADPH: quinone reductase) has been inserted between trpD and trpEa . Another qor paralog is present elsewhere in the genome of Anabaena . Nostoc also has two qor paralogs, but neither resides within the tryptophan operon.

  • This expectation is accommodated by the observation that P. aeruginosa possesses a paralog encoded by gene PA4447 [ 19] that must function in vivo as IAP aminotransferase as it is closely linked with other genes of histidine biosynthesis.

  • Thus, a single enzymatic function in one organism is accommodated through the cumulative expression of three paralog genes, but in another organism is only encoded by a portion of a single gene.

  • This unconstrained paralog is then free to accumulate neutral mutations that would have been deleterious in a unique gene [ 1].

  • A second paralog of the tryptophan synthase β subunit ( trpEb-2 ) is also present in an extra-operonic location several genes upstream of trpR.
