2 of a pinnate leaflet; having only one pair of leaflets
3 formed by the union of two compounds; "a conjugated protein" [syn: conjugated]
4 of an organic compound; containing two or more double bonds each separated from the other by a single bond [syn: conjugated] n : a mixture of two partially miscible liquids A and B produces two conjugate solutions: one of A in B and another of B in A [syn: conjugate solution]
1 unite chemically so that the product is easily broken down into the original compounds
2 add inflections showing person, number, gender, tense, aspect, etc.; "conjugate the verb"
3 undergo conjugation

Conjugation may refer to:
- Complex conjugation, the operation which multiplies the imaginary part of a complex number by −1; see also conjugate element (field theory).
- The conjugate transpose of a matrix with complex entries is created by taking the transpose of the matrix and the complex conjugate of each entry.
- A conjugate in algebra is similar to a complex conjugate, but is used to rationalize the denominator of a fraction.
- In group theory, if a is an element of a group, then the map f(x) = axa−1 is called conjugation by a. See inner automorphism, conjugacy class, conjugate closure, and conjugation of isometries in Euclidean space.
- Topological conjugation, which identifies equivalent dynamical systems.
- Conjugate points, in differential geometry.
- Conjugate prior, in probability theory, a family of prior probability distributions.
- Convex conjugate, generalization of the Legendre transformation. Also known as Legendre-Fenchel transformation or Fenchel transformation.
- A Conjugate element in field theory.
In the biosciences:
- In biology, transmission of DNA without fusion of gametes. This includes bacterial conjugation, which takes place without fusion; conjugation in ciliates, which involves fusion of nuclei but not cells; and conjugation in certain algae and fungi, which involves fusion of cells but not filaments.
- In immunology, a conjugate vaccine
- In metabolism, conjugation is a biochemical process to bind a substance to an acid and thereby deactivating its biological activity, making it water-soluble, and facilitating its excretion.
- a conjugate acid-base pair is one base and one acid which differ from each other by one proton (H+), as defined by the Brønsted-Lowry acid-base theory
- In organic chemistry, a conjugated system is a system of atoms covalently bonded with alternating single and multiple bonds.
- In biochemistry: (see metabolism above)
