Example sentences for: paralogues

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

  • Paralogous genes can often be found clustered within a genome, although dispersed paralogues, often with more diverse functions, are also common.

  • Thus, while selective interactions and functional overlap between duplicates declines relatively slowly over evolutionary time, the potential for recombinatorial interactions between paralogues is relatively short-lived.

  • Beyond that, low bootstrap values prohibit a confident assessment of evolutionary branching order of the arthropod Runx paralogues, and it is not clear whether they are monophyletic (although the position of the crayfish gene suggests a deep duplication event within in the insect/crustacean clade at least).

  • These kinds of recombinatorial interactions only occur between paralogues that are minimally diverged.
