Definition of "In trans to" - Yas - 08-01-2010


I'm training myself to be a patent translator and recently encountered the phrasal term, "in trans to." Does anybody tell me what this term means?

Here are example usages:
"these exosomes transmit redox signaling in trans to neighboring cells"
"PH domain of ELMO functions in trans to regulate Rac activation via Dock180"
" these complexes on activated monocytes present IL-15 in trans to target cells such as CD8+ T cells"
"regulatory elements might have the capacity to act in trans to regulate genes on other chromosomes"
