trans·duc·tant

(tranz-dŭk'tănt),
A cell that has acquired a new character by means of transduction; may be complete, with integration of the transferred genetic fragment into its genome, or abortive, in which case the genetic fragment is not integrated and passes to only one of the two daughter cells on division.

transductant

(trăns-dŭk′tənt, trănz-)
n.
A cell, especially a bacterial cell, into which genetic material has been transduced.

transductant

[-duk′tənt]

Total levels of Tks5, cortactin, and fascin proteins in the UMSCC1 transductant cells were assessed by Western blot analyses.
54) Immunoprecipitation experiments of total tyrosine phosphorylated proteins in the UMSCC1 transductant cells were conducted to evaluate the overall tyrosine phosphorylation state of cortactin.
54) For this assessment, UMSCC1 transductant cells were plated on the Alexa Fluor 405 gelatin-coated MatTek dishes, cultured for 4 hours, fixed, and stained by using total anti-cortactin and anti-phosphocortactin (pY421) antibodies.
