Definition of dimerization in US English:


(British dimerisation)


  • See dimerize

    • ‘Interestingly, the proteolysis patterns observed do not appear to correlate directly with the ability of a given metal ion to promote dimerization.’
    • ‘Indeed these two polar amino acids can interact with orthosilicic acid present in marine aqueous solutions and favor silica dimerization.’
    • ‘A key step in the calculation of the free energy of dimerization concerns the entropy loss upon bringing two monomer chains together to form the dimer.’
    • ‘The efficiency of dimerization of adjacent molecules is dependent on protein concentration.’
    • ‘Another domain is usually responsible for dimerization or oligomerization of the transcription factor monomers.’
