recognition

 [rek″og-nish´un]
1. the act of recognizing (seeing something as familiar).
2. the state of being seen as familiar.
3. the interaction of immunologically competent cells with antigen that begins with the binding of the antigen to specific antigen receptors on B and T lymphocytes and results in an immune response directed against the antigen. Called also antigen recognition.

The information content (IC) for the recognition site is listed along with the DNA binding domain (DBD) of the TFs either the homeodomain (HD) or the C2H2 Zn fingers (ZNF).
In other words, the quick uptake can be attributed to many of the imprinted cavities situated on the surface of the outer shell MIPs, which make the recognition sites available for template molecules resulting in shorter time to get the adsorption equilibrium [18, 22, 26, 37, 38].
A new idea is to use a restriction enzyme which has two separate recognition sites. It allows to cut DNA molecules representing elements of a PDA after ligating of transition molecules to both sides of circular DNA.
Digestions using restriction enzymes with four base-pair recognition sites were precipitated by ethanol before electrophoresis.
The DNA sequence for 5 amino acids (Asp-Asp-Asp-Asp-Lys) as a specific recognition site was inserted between PTH gene sequence and the fusion partner DNA sequences.
Berzofsky, one ofseveral NIH workers involved in the project, a T-cell recognition site newly discovered by the group apparently primes T cells to an earlier and higher immune response when later challenged with P.

The primers were designed by the Oligo 5.0 software, considering (when possible) the restriction endonuclease and the primer pair such that the PCR product contained a nonvariant recognition site (i.e., a control digestion site), thus improving the reliability of the technique.
One portion of the adapter contains the recognition site for FokI.
The offer of the company will be deemed contractually consider all the findings of this recognition site, and include all accessories and other necessary work.
Type IIS restriction enzymes such as MmeI, FokI, and BstF5I cleave DNA outside the recognition sequence: MmeI, 20 bases 3' to the recognition site on one strand and 18 bases from the recognition site on the other strand, leaving a 2-base overhang protruding 3' end; FokI, 9 bases 3' to the recognition site on one strand and 13 bases from the recognition site on the other strand, leaving a 4-base overhang protruding 5' end; BstF5I, 2 bases 3' to the recognition site on one strand and immediately 3' to the recognition site on the opposite strand, leaving a 2-base overhang.
