Definitions for "Substrate"
Waste material that may accumulate in cell lysosomes when it is not broken down by enzymes.
surface on which a cell or organism grows or is attached — such as the use of microcarriers in cell culture; most eukaryotic cell types require attachment to a substrate for survival; also called extracellular matrices; in the body they are composed mainly of proteins and provide chemical cues that affect or guide the behavior of cells.
Any combination of materials that provide support, water retention, aeration, or nutrient retention for plant growth. In this instance, substrate is compost into which mushroom spawn is distributed.
any substance on which an enzyme can act. In this example, HRP (the enzyme) will interact with a substrate called ABTS (2,2'-azinobis-3-ethylbenzothiazoleine-6-sulfonic acid) to produce a yellow solution.
A chemical recognized by an enzyme.
The matrix or solid underlay upon which a monolayer culture grows. Reactant in enzyme-mediated reaction.
The transparent plastic, usually polycarbonate, ‘disc’ that is bonded to a similar substrate to form a complete DVD or HD-DVD disc. Each substrate is therefore 0.6 mm thick and 1.2 cm in diameter and contains the pits for that side or layer of the disc.
Any non-film layer in a laminate.
The clear polycarbonate disc onto which data layers are stamped.
an underlying template that lines up the atoms of a crystalline thin film grown on it, much as a waffle iron confers a grid pattern on batter poured into it while hot
Refers to the catalytic or filter structure, generally comprised of either a ceramic or metallic honeycomb.
A CCD is bump bonded to a silicon substrate. The substrate supports the CCD during and after thinning. Without the substrate, the CCD would be prone to breakage. A thinned CCD is only about 0.0005" or 10-15 microns thick (1/10th of the thickness of a human hair!). The substrate also brings out the electrical connections from the front side CCD bond pads to make packaging easier.
The starting wafer on which semiconductor devices (“chips”) are built.
another term for a wafer.
The basic unit of material on which work is performed to create a product. Examples include wafers, die, plates used for masks, flat panels, circuit boards, lead frames, CDs and disks.
Keywords:  mud, sand, gravel, bed, sediment
the sea bed on which animals and plants live er are attached, including sand, mud, rock and coral.
the substance placed on the floor of a terrarium. Usually dirt, peat moss, sand, vermiculite, etc.
A solid surface. The substrate at Argyle includes: smooth smallrocks, large rough rocks, sand, anoxic mud, other mud, dead clam and barnacle shells, and live oyster and barnacle shells.
In a diglossia, the language that is associated with lower overt prestige and is eventually replaced by the more prestigious language. It may, however, have an influence on the lexis and grammar of the dominant language; for example, traces of Celtic influence can be found in English.
The medium in which a reaction takes place; in the context of this book, the tissue culture used in vaccine production.
Pertaining to the language of a culture which is inferior in status: Basque is said to be a substrate to Latin during the Romanization of the Iberian Peninsula.
Keywords:  jello, reagent, gel, chemistry, germ
fluid or solid in which an item is placed, or environment in which something may function. For example, a fish's substrate is water. In this case, the substrate that the protein is placed into is a jello-like gel. In chemistry, the substrate is also whatever is acted upon, for example, and antibody's substrate is the part of the germ it attacks.
Chemical compound (for example produced by a cell) that yields a product when acted upon by a reagent.
Synonymous with adherend, generally used to refer to what ever a veneer is adhered to. In the veneer business typically particle board, medium density fiberboard, plywood etc.
portion of a media metabolized by an organism.
Base metal of MBCI panel; e.g., Galvalume.
The base that an organism lives on.
Keywords:  furrows, slight
Having very slight furrows.
Keywords:  strew, anything, lay
To strew or lay under anything.
Anything that is printed upon.
In printing, the medium to which an ink or pigment is permanently transferred, such as paper or acetate.
The media on which something is printed, such as paper, vellum, cardboard, or cloth.
The ground on which an animal walks or progresses. It can be soft (incompetent) or hard (competent) and on land and even underwater.
