A relatively short reach or conduit leading from one waterway section to another of different width, shape, or slope.

2. Transition reaction
Biochemical process of converting 3-carbon pyruvate into 2-carbon acetyl and attaching it to coenzyme A (CoA) so it can enter Kreb's cycle . Carbon dioxide is also released and NADH is formed (from NAD and H) in this process.

3. Transition state
The activated state of a molecule that has partly undergone a chemical reaction.

4. Transition state intermediate
In a chemical reaction, an unstable and high-energy configuration assumed by reactants on the way to making products. Enzyme s are thought to bind and stabilize the transition state, thus lowering the energy of activation needed to drive the reaction to completion.
