(redirected from electroporated)
Also found in: Medical, Encyclopedia.


A process of applying a high-voltage electrical pulse to a living cell, causing temporary permeability of the cell membrane, through which a foreign material such as DNA may pass.

[electro- + poration, inducement of permeability of a cell membrane (pore + -ation).]
