Spanish term or phrase: modificando la trayectoria y por tanto, cambio de sentido
Talking about the effects of cadmium exposure on mice sperm:

Con el microscopio electrónico tanto la cabeza como el cuello de los espermatozoides son aparentemente normales, con el acrosoma ocupando toda la zona afilada apical y parte de la rostral (Figure1). Pero la alteración más significativa se localizó en la zona de transición entre los segmentos intermedios y principales, que se caracterizó por la persistencia de una gruesa gota de citoplasma, evidenciándose zonas amorfas con restos de retículo rugoso y mitocondrias. La presencia de esta gota citoplasmática se da prácticamente en todos los espermatozoides modificando la trayectoria y por tanto, cambio de sentido entre los segmentos intermedios y principales


any ideas?
thanks

modifying the trajectory and, therefore, changing the direction
Explanation:
It's literal, but it may work just fine.

sentido = direction

Another option for "por tanto," which may sound better in this context, might be "thus."

Admittedly, this is not one of my areas of expertise, hence the low confidence level.

Good luck, Anna, and regards from the US!
