The primary function of kinases in signal transduction is to activate protein kinases or other relay molecules in a series. In which of the following ways could signal transduction most probably be explored in research to treat cancer? alteration of protein kinases in cell cycle regulation in order to slow cancer growth A drug designed to inhibit the response of cells to testosterone would almost certainly result in which of the following? a decrease in transcriptional activity of certain genes At puberty, an adolescent female body changes in both structure and function of several organ systems, primarily under the influence of changing concentrations of estrogens and other steroid hormones.

In research on aging (both cellular aging and
