Example sentences for: phages

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

  • Previously, the RecT proteins have been known from very few bacteria and Redβ has only been detected in λ and closely related phages.

  • We computed four independent factorial correspondence analyses (FCA) on the genes of each type (native and transferred genes, IS, and phages) for the four species E. coli O157:H7, Helicobacter pylori , Salmonella enterica , and Streptococcus pneumoniae . Figure 4shows the projection of the genes and the codons on the two first axes for E. coli , Salmonella , S. pneumoniae and H. pylori . The codons have been labeled according to their third position.

  • This view of the evolutionary history of RDRPs is compatible with the presence of RDRP homologs in phages and with their role in replicating microRNAs (potential relics of the RNA world) during PTGS in eukaryotes.

  • Such phyletic patterns, together with the presence of members of this family in genomes of phages and prophages, suggests that lateral transfer was involved in the dissemination of some of these orthologous groups.

  • The sporadic distribution of the RecT and Redβ family proteins in bacterial genomes and their presence in phages suggest that these proteins ultimately are of phage origin and have been co-opted by the bacterial DNA recombination/repair systems.
