Descriptor electroporación
Scope note: Técnica en la que impulsos eléctricos de intensidad en kilovoltios por centímetro y de una duración entre microsegundos y milisegundos, causa una pérdida temporal de la semipermeabilidad de las MEMBRANAS CELULARES provocando dispersión iónica, escape de metabolitos y una mayor captación por parte de las células de los fármacos, sondas moleculares, y ADN. Algunas aplicaciones de la electroporación son la introducción de plásmidos o ADN extraño en células vivas para transfección, fusión de células para preparar hibridomas, e inserción de proteínas en las membranas celulares.

Scope note: A technique in which electric pulses of intensity in kilovolts per centimeter and of microsecond-to-millisecond duration cause a temporary loss of the semipermeability of CELL MEMBRANES, thus leading to ion leakage, escape of metabolites, and increased uptake by cells of drugs, molecular probes, and DNA.
