noun
Biochemistry A term for the covalent complex formed when a chemical binds a biomolecule, such as DNA or a protein.
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.
Molecular oncology A chemical bond between any substance and DNA, which may upregulate a gene; DNA-carcinogen adducts can drive a cell’s molecular machinery towards malignancy.

295 Hz) would have to be aDducted falsetto, (21) since (a) chest phonation is usually restricted to the lower range; and (b) breathy phonation, created by aBducted falsetto, is outside the aesthetic boundaries.
The difficulty of switching from aDducted chest to aDducted falsetto can be explained physiologically.
(17.) In a previously conducted pilot study, these sound qualities were labelled "naive falsetto" (aBducted falsetto), "countertenor falsetto" (aDducted falsetto), "lyrical chest" (aBducted chest), and "full chest" (aDducted chest); see Note 19.
However the authors did not study the CD nor the position with the thumb adducted. In the study of Schleihauf (1979), the position with the thumb fully abducted showed a maximum [C.sub.L] at an acute angle of attack of 15[degrees], whereas the models with partial thumb abduction showed a maximum value of [C.sub.L] at higher angles of attack (45[degrees]-60[degrees]).
Although some differences in the results of different studies, it seems that when the thumb leads the motion (sweep back angle of 0[degrees]) a hand position with the thumb abducted into the plane of the hand would be preferable to an adducted thumb position.
When analyzing the resultant force coefficient, we found that the position with the thumb abducted presented higher values than the positions with the thumb partially abducted and adducted at angles of attack of 0[degrees] and 45[degrees].
Finally, we determined the specific activity of adducted protein for each sample by scintillation counting and a protein assay (Bradford 1976).
The specific activities of adducted proteins (nanomoles bound per milligram protein) generated in in vitro incubations of nasal epithelium from rats or rhesus macaques varied from 1.0 to 1.5 nmol/mg protein; we noted no statistically significant difference in the data obtained from rat olfactory and septal epithelium compared with rhesus ethmoturbinates and maxilloturbinates (Figure 1).
We identified a large number of adducted proteins after incubation of rat nasal olfactory epithelium with naphthalene (Table 1).
By design, the isocyanate hapten is quantified irrespective of the biomolecule to which it is adducted. This is important because the in vivo bioreactant(s) is unknown.
