1. The conversion of input energy of one form into output energy of another form.
3. The transfer of genetic material from one cell to another, especially a bacterial cell, through the use of a bacteriophage.

[From Latin transductus, past participle of trānsdūcere, to transfer; see transducer.]

The protective effect of polyphenolic antioxidant agent such as Resveratrol [25,26], on the ROS-induced decrease in HUVECs adhesion and ERK1/2 dephosphorylation, confirmed the role of ROS in modulating transductional signals and therefore regulating cellular functions.
Research efforts to develop new transductional materials, however, have largely been limited to laboratory demonstrations and haven t always resulted in new capabilities or significant size, weight, and power (SWAP) reduction for military devices and systems.
The main advantage of this technique is the possibility of investigating neurotransmitter receptors by using already-assembled receptors, without interfering with the transcriptional and transductional host machinery.
