You see, as far as passing the baton down, Michael used to look at Fred Astaire, gene Kelly, and James Brown.
The stranger was Swifty Lazar, super-agent to stars such as Humphrey Bogart and gene Kelly.
Before Kiley was born, they did not realize they were both silent carriers of the gene that causes the condition.
Hell, even gene the Cow would be a hoof-in for a nomination if there were an Outstanding Animal Performance category.
But maybe there comes a point like KISS where KISS is going to continue on without gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley].
Outside, beneath the big crescent sign, gene stopped to watch the crowds eddying in and out.
If my letters did not gene you it is impossible that you should suppose that yours were of no use to me!
She was going to Uncle 'gene's, after all, in spite of herself!
Was her condition merely the result of some freak heredity or gene mutation?
There were four letters from gene, who had written one each week since he had left Windy Island.
1911, from German Gen, coined 1905 by Danish scientist Wilhelm Ludvig Johannsen (1857-1927), from Greek genea "generation, race" (see genus). De Vries had earlier called them pangenes. Gene pool is attested from 1950.
common Irish surname, from Old Irish ceallach "war." As a type of pool played with 15 balls, it is attested from 1898. Kelly green first recorded 1917.
word-forming element technically meaning "something produced," but mainly, in modern use, "thing that produces or causes," from French -gène (18c.), from Greek -genes "born of, produced by," related to genos "birth" (see genus). Originally in late 18th century chemistry and probably reflecting misunderstanding of -genes, as though it meant "that which produces."
A hereditary unit that occupies a specific location on a chromosome, determines a particular characteristic in an organism by directing the formation of a specific protein, and is capable of replicating itself at each cell division.
-gen or -gene
One that is produced: phosgene.
A segment of DNA, occupying a specific place on a chromosome, that is the basic unit of heredity. Genes act by directing the production of RNA, which determines the synthesis of proteins that make up living matter and are the catalysts of all cellular processes. The proteins that are determined by genetic DNA result in specific physical traits, such as the shape of a plant leaf, the coloration of an animal's coat, or the texture of a person's hair. Different forms of genes, called alleles, determine how these traits are expressed in a given individual. Humans are thought to have about 35,000 genes, while bacteria have between 500 and 6,000. See also dominant, recessive. See Note at Mendel.
