Example sentences for: paralogous

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

  • We used chromosome 19 as the model to test this hypothesis by comparing the cDNA library profiles of spatially adjacent paralogous genes.

  • We were motivated to find additional paralogous genes, with their regulation similarly preserved.

  • Pairwise comparisons of the K n /K s values for different clades revealed that the strength of selection was generally similar in bacterial, archaeal and eukaryotic sets of paralogous genes, although apparently stronger selection was observed among the yeast paralogs and weaker selection was seen in mammalian paralogs (Tables 1, 2).

  • First, to avoid the inclusion of sequences from additional closely related paralogous genes, we used a BLAST hit cutoff of 98%, so that only reads at least 98% similar to the query sequence were selected.

  • Unexpectedly, we did not find that clusters of paralogous miRNA genes were more prevalent, as might have been predicted a priori if gene clusters generally result from local gene duplications.
