Biochem Exam 3 Signal Transduction Pathways General information about signal transduction pathways o Three pathways: epinephrine, insulin, and epidermal growth factor o Principles: release of primary messenger (signal)   interaction of the primary   messenger with receptors (reception)   (amplification)   transduction or relay of   cascade (transduction)   activation or inhibition of effector proteins that directly   alter the physiological response (response)   (signal termination) o Second messengers: relay information from ligand-receptor complexes, signal  amplification, regulate processes in multiple cell compartments, and some are  soluble (got into different cellular compartments) cAMP, cGMP, calcium ion, IP3, DAG Epinephrine +  β -Adrenergic receptor   Energy-store mobilization
