The current study describes in detail the biochemical signal transduction cascades that ephrins can transduce into their cell.
In other words, these smart polymers can detect, transduce, and, sometimes, amplify a chemical or physical information into an optical or electrical signal.
The possibility that G proteins and the PI/DAG/PKC pathway transduce signals that modify responses of larvae to the metamorphic cue, as in Hallotis rufescens (Trapido-Rosenthal and Morse, 1985; Baxter and Morse, 1987), cannot be eliminated, however.
The primary aim of this study is to determine the ability of our vector to generate viral particles that can be used to transduce target cells.
Their better-known cousins, the membrane channels that transduce chemical or electrical stimuli, fall into three basic building plans: arrangements of four, five, or six subunits with a central axis of symmetry forming an aqueous passageway through the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane - the channel pore.
Objective: Piezoelectric materials transduce electrical voltage into mechanical strain and vice-versa, which makes them ubiquitous in sensors, actuators, and energy harvesting systems.

Transduce (transduction): referring to the transfer of genetic material from one organism to another by a genetic vector, such as a virus or plasmid (see above).
To observe the activity of such complex neural networks, we will develop a disruptive observation technique that will transduce the electrical activity of spiking neurons into optical differences observed on a lens-free platform, without calcium labelling and constantly in-incubo.
Although the resulting magnetic field is one-twenty thousandth as strong as a refrigerator magnet, ants appear to perceive the geomagnetic information through a magnetic sensor (the dirt particles), transduce it in a signal to the nervous system and then to the brain.
