How to use "Fork-like" in context?
structure in genetics
Scientists have discovered a new gene which plays a key role in fork-like structure in genetics. The discovery could help us to understand the root of some diseases and offer new opportunities for therapies.
Fork-like structure is a characteristic of genetic material found in many viruses and bacteria. It is made up of two identical genetic "subunits", each encoded by a separate gene.
The new gene, forkhead, plays an important role in controlling the way these subunits are assembled into fork-like structures. It is believed that defects in forkhead function may underlie some diseases, including cancer.
