Although the formation of typical A-type inclusions is restricted to cells infected with cowpox virus, ectromelia virus, and raccoonpox virus (2), the sequence coding the N-terminus of the protein is highly conserved in many viruses, including CPXV, VACV, variola virus, camelpox virus, and ectromelia virus.
Further M RNA sequences will help in determining the most conserved regions and subsequently the design of the most effective primers.
All these decorative features have been creatively conserved keeping in view the International practices of conservation," Wajahat explained.

Since amino acid residues that are vital for function or structural stability of a protein tend to be conserved across species, any differences at the functional sites would indicate possible differences for biological activity.
The vector T = ([T.sup.1], ..., [T.sup.r]) is a conserved vector for the partial differential equation and [T.sup.1], ..., [T.sup.r] are its components.
In different laboratory tests, Quadvax-induced antibodies inhibited the growth of 26 different parasite strains, and the scientists suggest that "the combination of four AMA1 variants in Quadvax may be sufficient to overcome global AMA1 diversity." Besides varying a lot from strain to strain, AMA1 also contains less variable (conserved) exposed parts (so-called epitopes) on its surface.
