Example sentences for: paralogous

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

  • The size of the paralogous repeat unit ranges from approximately 1,500 bp (1055/1056) to approximately 2,800 bp (Cpn 007).

  • These include clusters containing paralogous miRNA genes (such as mir-281a and mir-281b ) others that contain unrelated genes ( mir-12/mir-283 , mir-34/mir-277 and mir-275/2L:7418176 clusters), and some that are a mixture of both ( mir-79 cluster).

  • Under this scenario, synonymous divergence could be substantially underestimated for paralogous, but not for orthologous genes in our dataset, falsely suggesting an acceleration of evolution of amino-acid substitutions (larger K n /K s values) in paralogous genes.

  • 148 is present in the actinomycetes and the Gram-positive bacterium Clostridium acetobutylicum . It shows a lineage-specific expansion in the former taxon, with 11 and 3 closely related, paralogous forms in the genomes of Streptomyces and Mycobacterium tuberculosis , respectively.

  • We compared rates of change in archaebacterial versus eubacterial sequences using paralogous sequences (those related by gene duplication) as a root for relative rate tests [ 47 48 ] . To examine rate differences between eukaryotic sequences and their closest prokaryote orthologs (those representing the same gene), we used the more distant prokaryote (archaebacteria or eubacteria) as root.
