  • n. Plural form of homopolymer.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Milton suspected 454 would have problems, especially in sequencing stretches of so-called homopolymers: runs of the same base, such as five As or six Ts.

  • For example, this hypothesis would predict that some very simple polypeptides, most likely homopolymers, have biological activities that might enhance fitness of a protocell.

  • The product range covers homopolymers and copolymers in various viscosities and delivery forms.

  • As a scientific discipline, polymer science has gone through the stages of homopolymers and block copolymers, and now is the time to study the chemistry, physics and biological applications of sequence-defined copolymers, i.e., converging with proteins and nucleic acids.

  • To reinforce the similarity of both datasets, when sequences derived from both DNA sequencing methods (N = 1645) or sequences exclusively found by 454-pyrosequencing (N = 1202) were compared, we observe no significant differences in the frequency of homopolymers of all sizes (4 to 7 repeated bases).

  • As the next-generation DNA pyrosequencing methodology used here is known for its relatively high error-rate in DNA fragments containing homopolymers ≥ 5nt

  • It said that the samples were first obtained on laboratory scale and then in a pilot plant, where homopolymers and copolymers were produced.

  • By using an RNA-binding assay based on synthetic RNA homopolymers and a panel of MTG deletion mutants, here we show that all the MTG proteins can bind RNA.

  • Table S4), we observed a non-statistically significant trend for a reduced frequency of homopolymers ≥ 5 in the 454-derived dataset when compared to the Sanger-derived sequence set (chi-square test, P = 0.9955).
