translocation [tloc] v.2.1.0 (current)

Long form: translocation() Short form: tloc()

For the abundance term A, translocation(, fromLocation(ns1:v1), toLocation(ns2:v2)) or tloc(, fromLoc(ns1:v1), toLoc(ns2:v2)) denotes the frequency or number of events in which members of move from the location designated by the value +v1+ in the namespace +ns1+ to the location designated by the value v2 in the namespace ns2. Translocation is applied to represent events on the cellular scale, like endocytosis and movement of transcription factors from the cytoplasm to the nucleus. Special case translocations are handled by the BEL functions: cellSecretion(), cellSurfaceExpression().
