(n.) Remoteness of place; a remote place.
(n.) A space marked out in the last part of a race course.

(n.) The interval between two notes; as, the distance of a fourth or seventh.
(v. t.) To place at a distance or remotely.
(v. t.) To cause to appear as if at a distance; to make seem remote.
(v. t.) To outstrip by as much as a distance (see Distance, n., 3); to leave far behind; to surpass greatly.

(6) When compared with nonspecialized regions of the cell membranes, these contact sites were characterized by a decreased intercellular distance, subplasmalemmal densities and coated pits.
(7) The distance of nucleoid sedimentation increased as a function of exposure temperature and exposure time, and was proportional to an increased protein to DNA ratio in the nucleoids.
