genes involved

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • Most genes involved affect ion channels, either directly or indirectly.
  • Mutations in several genes involved in the G2/M transition are implicated in many cancers.
  • This overcomes the effect of drugs that reduce the expression of genes involved in replication.

other genes

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.

genes encoding

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • The genes encoding these proteins are highly active.
  • Human genes encoding protein containing this domain include RPL28.

target genes

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.

genes and proteins

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian

receptor genes

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • Further, to help understand the neurobiology of behavior, fox and dog orthologs of serotonin receptor genes were cloned.
  • The nomenclature assigned to the olfactory receptor genes and proteins for this organism is independent of other organisms.

expression of genes

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • nuclear proteins that regulate the expression of genes.
  • The function of Whirly proteins is to regulate the expression of genes that aid defence.
  • This overcomes the effect of drugs that reduce the expression of genes involved in replication.
E.g.

different genes

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
  • Often different genes can interact in a way that influences the same trait.
  • Enolase is a dimeric protein formed from three subunits, α, β, and γ, encoded by different genes.
  • Findings point strongly to heterogeneity, with different genes being implicated in different families.

specific genes

Pronunciation American British Australian Indian
E.g.
