Relation
Type
Explanation Dependency pattern example Sample sentence
nsubj(A,B) B is nominal subject of A nsubj(control, expression) The expression of rsfA is under the control of both sigma(F) and sigma(G)
nsubjpass(A, B) B is passive nominal subject of A nsubjpass(recognized, promoter) The ald promoter, like the sigE promoter, is believed to be recognized by sigmaA RNA polymerase, suggesting that sigmaK may inhibit sigmaA activity late in sporulation.
dobj(A, B) B is direct object of A dobj(inhibit, activity) The ald promoter, like the sigE promoter, is believed to be recognized by sigmaA RNA polymerase, suggesting that sigmaK may inhibit sigmaA activity late in sporulation.
amod(A,B) B is adjectival modifier of A amod(transcription, GeneX-dependent) These results demonstrate that sigmaK-dependent transcription of gerE initiates a negative feedback loop in which GerE acts as a repressor to limit production of sigmaK.
nmod(A,B) B is nominal modifier of A nmod(essential, expression) Both SigK and GerE were essential for ykvP expression, and this gene was transcribed from T5 of sporulation.
