Chemistry A compound produced by mixing 2 or more chemicals.
Molecular biology (1) A molecular complex consisting of a chemical—e.g., environmental toxins like polyaromatic hydrocarbons—bound to a biomolecule—e.g., DNA, protein, especially those that attach after exposure to air pollution, cigarette smoke, and other environmental contaminants. 
(2) A molecule resulting from a reaction between molecules with major parallel axes—i.e., molecules with overlapping effects.

The position with the thumb adducted presented slightly higher values of drag coefficient when compared with the positions with the thumb abducted (although values were very similar).
The combination of drag and lift coefficient (resultant force coefficient) showed that the position with the thumb fully abducted presented higher values than the positions with the thumb partially abducted and adducted at angles of attack of 0[degrees] and 45[degrees].

In addition, our finding of similar levels of covalent protein binding in nasal epithelium of the rodent and monkey (Figure 1), as well as observations that some (but not all) of the proteins adducted by reactive metabolites of naphthalene are the same in dissected airways and nasal epithelium of rodents and nonhuman primates (Lin et al.
Although 2D gel electrophoresis arguably provides the greatest resolving power for whole proteins of any separations technique available, there is still the potential of selecting a spot that contains two unseparated proteins, one that is low abundance and adducted and one that is much higher abundance and identified by MS.
The formation of covalent adducts with actin and tubulin is not generally considered to be a critical step in the pathway to cellular injury because the specific activity of these adducted proteins (nanomoles bound per nanomole of protein) is likely to be quite low.
With naphthalene, several of these proteins, including the master regulator of the unfolded protein response, BiP/GRP78 (78 kDa glucose-regulated protein) (Townsend 2007), as well as the heat shock proteins HSP60 and HSP70, are adducted, thus potentially altering their ability to repair proteins undergoing thiol oxidation and unfolding during the early stages of naphthalene toxicity.
We derived several other adducted proteins from monkey nasal epithelial incubations, but these yielded unreliable identifications.
Many of the adducted proteins identified are the same as those observed in incubations with other target tissues.
