Dictionary » P » Putative



Commonly thought or deemed; supposed; reputed; as, the putative father of a child. His other putative (I dare not say feigned) friends. Thus things indifferent, being esteemed useful or pious, became customary, and then came for reverence into a putative and usurped authority. (Jer. Taylor)

Origin: L. Putativus, fr. Putare, putatum, to reckon, suppose, adjust, prune, cleanse. See Pure, and cf. Amputate, Compute, Dispute, Impute.

... possibility is that there has been one or more mutation(s) in one of the primer binding sites so that the primer has some mispairs with its putative target and the affinity of the primer for the altered target is below the affinity needed for efficient PCR.

Re: Are evolution and creationism mutually exclusive???

... in a living thing over time' as 'evolution'. There has been speciation, genetic drift, etc but again, these mechanisms have NOTHING to do with the putative origin of a genome, from non living matter, through natural processes, which then gets more and more complex over time, for no reason other ...

... to find some apetala gene sequence. However, what you will probably end up with will be DNA library and degenerated probe, which will lead you to putative apetala gene from Hibiscus. After sequencing and further characterization you should be able to say how related it is to known apetala genes ...

... However, unless you have a mutant that you can use to prove your gene IS apetala, your work would be insufficient as everything would be "putative".

Re: T7 Expression System

... The use of blue-sephadex, Ap5A elution and a second G-100 sephadex separation yield homogenous adenylate kinase in E.Coli anyway (the putative gene i'm dealing with show's a high degree of similarity in sequence to E.Coli AK). However this would not solve the problem of the endogenous ...
