Strain Refers to a group of mice that are bred within a closed colony in order to maintain certain defining characteristics. Strains can be inbred or non-inbred (see Chapter 3).

A strain of E. coli is a sub-group within the species that has unique characteristics that distinguish it from other E. coli strains.

Strains of HIV (designated "R5") bind the coreceptor CCR5. These are the strains that are most infectious.
Strains of HIV (designated "X4") bind the coreceptor CXCR4.

Strain
Pure culture of microorganisms composed of the descendants of a single cell.

1. The dead S strain had been reanimated/resurrected.
2. The Live R had been transformed into Live S by some "transforming factor".
Further experiments led Griffith to conclude that number 2 was correct.

biotype. A strain of a species that has certain biological characters separating it from other individuals of that species.
blackarm. Bacterial blight lesions on stems.

Nearly identical strains of an organism; they vary at only a single locus.
Comparative genomics
The study of human genetics by comparisons with model organisms such as mice, the fruit fly, and the bacterium E. coli.

Assembler Tool: A program to assemble sequences belonging to one locus from an isolate or strain, and compare them to reference sequence(s)
BALIBASE - A benchmark alignment database: BAliBASE 2.

A cross between an animal that is heterozygous for alleles obtained from two parental strains and a second animal from one of those parental strains. Also used to describe the breeding protocol of an outcross followed by a backcross.

Examples include transgenic models where specific genetic loci are either knocked-out (removed) or knocked-in (introduced) to enable study of the locus; recombinant inbred mouse strains; recombinant viral transfection for synthesis of clonal protein.

Auxotrophic mutantA bacterial strain which has a mutation in at least one of the enzymes in a biochemical pathway responsible for synthesising an essential substance, for example an amino acid.

Several cyanobacterial strains are also capable of diazotrophic growth. Genome sequencing has provided a large amount of information on the genetic basis of nitrogen metabolism and its control in different cyanobacteria.

Mutations in the antigenic structure of the influenza virus have resulted in a number of different influenza subtypes and strains.

Vaccines therefore may consist of just the viral protein coat (some flu vaccines), or they may be heat-killed viruses (the Salk polio vaccine) which can no longer replicate or a vaccine may be an "attenuated" live virus strain (Sabin polio vaccine).

Ossification of muscular tissue as a result of repeated strain or injury is not infrequent. It is oftenest found about the tendon of the Adductor longus and Vastus medialis in horsemen, or in the Pectoralis major and Deltoideus of soldiers.

Although a neutrophil can kill this bead-like string of Streptococcus pyogenes, this particular strain of bacteria expresses streptolysin-s on its surface which kills the white cell through necrosis, ...

molecular mapping line Strains that are typically used for molecular mapping are generally recombinant inbred lines. RI lines are derived from a cross between parents with polymorphic genotypes.

A cross between a progeny from a previous cross and its parental strain, a cross of a heterozygote with its homozygous recessive parent, or the cross of a plant of unknown genotype with a homozygous recessive.

(h) This subtle and highly directed straining of the substrate(s) is one of things responsible for the ability of enzymes to lower activation energies ("distorting the substrate reduces the amount of thermal energy that must be absorbed in order to ...

And this third phosphate it's going in to this region of great negativity so there is a lot of strain on that bond and so very easily dink, ...

He observed that heat-killed S strain bacteria injected into mice did not kill them. When he injected a mixture of heat-killed S and live R bacteria, the mice died. Moreover, he recovered living S bacteria from the carcasses.

A group of planktonic tunicates that secrete a gelatinous house, used to strain unsuitable particles (large particles are rejected).

Pesticide resistance: A genetic change in response to selection by a pesticide, resulting in the development of strains capable of surviving a dose lethal to most individuals in a normal population.

stress Physical, chemical, or emotional factors that place a strain on an animal. Plants also experience physiological stress under adverse environmental conditions.
stress-related disease See stress shock.

In primitive chordates the pharyngeal slits are used to strain water and filter out food particles; in fishes they are modified for respiration. Most terrestrial vertebrates have pharyngeal slits only in the embryonic stage.

Insect resistant (plants): Tolerant of, or resistant to, insect attack (as in plants). individuals from strains whose ancestors had not been exposed to the pesticide.

During extraction of plasmid DNA from the bacterial cell, one strand of the DNA becomes nicked. This relaxes the torsional strain needed to maintain supercoiling, producing the familiar form of plasmid. (See Plasmid.) ...

(awk-soh-trohf)
A nutritional mutant that is unable to synthesize and that cannot grow on media lacking certain essential molecules normally synthesized by wild-type strains of the same species.

You have incubated super bacteria! It's happening all the time in hospitals. We are killing off the easy diseases but some mutant strains are surviving. We might not be able to cure people next time a bad disease infects people.

Topoisomerase is the enzyme that helps to relieve this strain by breaking, untwisting and rejoining the DNA strands.
