How can you use “diffusible” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Cells communicate with each other in various ways, such as by secreting and receiving diffusible molecules (morphogens, hormones, and neurotransmitters) or by establishing intercellular connections (gap junctions and cell protrusions) to allow a direct exchange of instructive factors.
