English term or phrase: Check females for plugs.
Es un experimento en el que se inyectan células con genes mutados en ratas. La duda radica en plugs, no logro identificar su significado en este contexto. Aparece en dos partes más del texto:

Por ejemplo esta:


A mating plug, also known as a copulation plug, sperm plug, vaginal plug, sement or sphragis (Latin, from Greek σφραγίδα 'sfragida' a seal), is gelatinous secretion used in the mating of some species. It is deposited by a male into a female genital tract, such as the vagina, and later hardens into a plug or glues the tract together.[1] While females can expel the plugs afterwards, the male's sperm still gets a time advantage in getting to the egg, which is often the deciding factor in fertilization.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mating_plug

Tapón vaginal (vaginal plug):
Es un tapón que bloquea la vagina, está formado por proteínas coaguladas provenientes de los fluidos seminales del macho. Dicho tapón podemos encontrarlo en algunos animales como el babuino, la rata, el ratón y la ardilla luego de la copulación.
