Example sentences for: paramutagenic

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

  • For instance, at the b1 locus, one specific allele can switch spontaneously from a non-paramutagenic, transcriptionally active, state to a paramutagenic, transcriptionally silenced, state [ 23 ] . Whether the same is true for trans-silencing is not well established.

  • Whether the imprint imposed by a paramutagenic locus is relayed effectively from the first target locus to a secondary target locus is a variable characteristic of paramutation systems, and this has implications for the speed of epiallele conversion within outcrossing populations.

  • These repeats are often part of the trans-silencer locus or paramutagenic locus or its target [ 10 14 15 16 17 ] . However, the repeat can sometimes be located at a considerable distance from the affected locus itself, as has recently been shown for the single-copy maize b1 gene [ 18 ] . Other than transcriptional gene silencing, paramutation is only weakly correlated with DNA methylation.

  • In the classical case of paramutation at the maize b1 locus, the imprint is relayed with 100% efficiency [ 24 ] . That is, a paramutated allele is turned into a paramutagenic allele.
