The support, while acting as a visual and functional constraint, is not a harmful one.
Since the FUCA1 gene is important for reproductive strategies of bats a strong functional constraint of FUCA1 gene was shown in mammals which was caused by strong purifying selection.
The latter, for example, are designed to be folded and put away, a purely functional constraint for size and shape so that they can be hidden within the home.
Each functional constraint is applied, and all functional results are then reconciled simultaneously to develop an integrated execution plan that best supports the unconstrained requirement while minimizing the risk of producing excess assets.
corymbosa maintains an apparently functional rbcL gene, with statistical analysis suggesting that the open reading frame (ORF) is being retained because of functional constraint rather than chance.
