Hybrid. Definition

Medical Definition: Hybrid

In the field of medicine, something formed from parts of different origins. Refers to a person, organ or tissue containing cells with genes different from the rest of the person, organ or tissue. This can happen due to a mutation (genetic change) that occurs during development or as a result of transplantation of cells, organs or tissues from another person or a different species. In the lab, can produce a hybrid protein by combining two different genes. For example, an antibody produced hybrid antibody genes joining of two different species, such as a human and a mouse.
