2 Where were going 1. signals – local, global 2. reception – membrane, intracellular 3. transduction cascades 4. cellular responses – fast, slow Local signaling without secretion Nostoc sp. H Local signaling with secretion Paracrine signaling secretions of one cell change growth or development of target cells Synaptic transmission neurotransmitter released by nerve terminal causes muscle contraction or nerve-nerve signaling. Presynaptic nerve cell Postsynaptic cell synaptic cleft Global, long distance signaling endocrine signaling, hormones • Endocrine gland releases hormone into blood system • Target cell has hormone receptors on cell membrane or intracellular Effect of epinephrine on cells in liver and muscle Earl Sutherland, Nobel Prize 1971 epi R cAMP active enzyme * Observation: Increase in circulating epinephrine activates the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase to break down glycogen to glucose-1-phosphate (G-1-P) Experiment 1: Combine epi + glycogen + glycogen phosphorylase => no G-1-P
