trans·fec·tion

(trans-fek'shŭn),
A method of gene transfer using infection of a cell with nucleic acid (as from a retrovirus) resulting in subsequent viral replication in the transfected cell.
[trans- + infection]

transfection

(trăns-fĕk′shən)
n.
Introduction of a segment of DNA or RNA into a eukaryotic cell by means of one of a variety of physical or chemical methods or through viral infection.

trans·fect′ v.

transfection

[-fek′shən]
Etymology: L, trans + inficere, to taint
the process by which a bacterial cell is infected with purified DNA or RNA isolated from a virus after a specific pretreatment. Acute transfection is short-term infection. transfect, v.

A method of gene transfer using infection of a cell with nucleic acid (as from a retrovirus) resulting in subsequent viral replication in the transfected cell.
[trans- + infection]

transfection

Gene transfer by infection of a cell with nucleic acid by a virus, followed by viral replication in the affected cell.

transfection
