transport

[trans′pȯrt (verb), ′tranz‚pȯrt (noun)]
(computer science)
To convey as a whole from one storage device to another in a digital computer.
(engineering)

transport

To move or copy from one location to another. Same as "transfer." In the physical world, "to transport" means "to move" (take this from here and put it there). In the electronic world, "to transport" means "to copy" the data to another location. The original data are still intact in the first location until they are purposely deleted. See transport layer and OSI.

The study, conducted by Boston Children's Hospital using Blood-Oxygenation-Level-Dependent (BOLD) MRI, showed that dysfunctional placentas have large regions with slow oxygen transport to the fetus.
Using this technique, called Blood-Oxygenation-Level-Dependent (BOLD) MRI, they showed that dysfunctional placentas have large regions with slow oxygen transport to the fetus.
The increased capillary network plays an important role in improving aerobic capacity, facilitating oxygen transport, conductance, and muscle extraction; therefore contributing to increased maximal oxygen uptake and physical performance (19).
Taking into account the above data was of interest to establish a correlation between morphological characteristics of red blood cells, oxygen transport and distribution functions of HB under the influence of high concentrations and prolonged exposure of ions [Ca.
Hemocyanin concentration and oxygen affinity are known to be labile in many crustaceans, providing mechanisms to sustain oxygen transport under a variety of environmental conditions.
Recent studies suggest that oxygen transport within natural corks occurs by diffusion through a gas phase in large spaces such as lenticels, plasmodesma-tas (microscopic channels that make the communication between cells) or inside of empty cells following the Fick's or Knudsen mechanisms.
Diabetes affects oxygen transport by causing glucose to covalently bind to the hemoglobin molecule, decreasing oxygen saturation and red blood cell oxygen transport in diabetic patients.
As we know, training at altitude also has its positive effect by causing the body to increase its oxygen transport (hemoglobin) and utilization systems but as with dedicated training, this too takes consistent effort over several weeks to months to induce proper adaptation for increased oxygen usage.
Part II then reviews the discoveries of 1910-2010 in the various systems of the body sequentially as related to exercise: sensorimotor and autonomic nervous function, respiration, oxygen transport, central and peripheral parts of the cardiovascular system, muscular, endocrine, and gastrointestinal systems, metabolism of basic substrates and of lactate, temperature regulation, and the renal, immune, and skeletal systems.
CuO]) reduction measured for OCs during the operation in the CLC plant (see Table 1) produced a decrease in the oxygen transport capacity ([R.
