Things that aren't conserved by evolution are less likely to be required for basic functions.
A large fraction of the virus-specific T-cell response in mice and humans is directed to conserved determinants of viral core proteins, and many studies in mice have shown that memory T cells can accelerate recovery and reduce illness on virus challenge.
The PathBLAST development group published a paper in the 30 September 2003 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in which they identified the conserved pathways within the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the bacterium Helicobacter pylori.
Still, conservatism is best understood by looking to the object, structure, or institution to be conserved.
Puget Sound Energy is following through on its commitments to see that these environmentally sensitive lands are conserved for future generations," said Eric Markell, PSE's senior vice president of Energy Resources.
Since 1972, The Trust for Public Land has completed 5,200 park and conservation projects, conserved more than 3 million acres, and helped generate $33 billion in state and local conservation funding.
Under the project, INTACH funded by Spain, around 200 monuments, riverbanks that form a part of the heritage city will be conserved.
RNA silencing was first noticed in plants when attempts to create transgenic plants that overexpressed a natural gene often had the opposite effect; later it was found to be an evolutionarily conserved defense mechanism against plant RNA viruses and other molecular parasites.
The first 8 to 13 nucleotide bases at the 3' ends of all three RNA segments have a sequence that is conserved in the viruses of this genus, with a complementary consensus sequence occurring at the 5' end; the ends of the segments are noncovalently linked so that the RNA occurs in a loosely bound circular configuration within the nucleocapsids (11).
When it comes to stormwater runoff, patches of conserved land do not counterbalance developed land, he explains.
This water - called "Intentionally Created Surplus" or "ICS" water - is defined as water that has been conserved through an extraordinary conservation measure, such as land fallowing.
A recent report claims that these sequences have been conserved through hundreds of millions of years of evolution, a fact that suggests they may perform important roles and are worthy of future study.
This comparison defined 181 conserved linkage groups, approximately 90% of the mouse genome.
Since 1972, we have completed more than 5,200 park and conservation projects, conserved more than 3 million acres, and helped generate more than $34 billion in state and local conservation funding.
