- ‘The protein coded by these genes is accumulated to high levels by feeding larvae and gene amplification has not resulted in different discernible functions.’
- ‘Although the explanation for most of our metastases showing protein overexpression without gene amplification is unknown at this point, we noted a plausible explanation for the discordance in 2 of these patients.’
- ‘Importantly, the technology eliminates the need for costly, time and labor intensive gene amplification or enzymatic interventions - two widespread methods currently used to perform such analyses.’
- ‘The unexpectedly common association of palindromic DNA with gene amplification has stimulated interest in understanding how large DNA palindromes form.’
