Unformatted text preview: pp. 458-468 ____________________________________ Some things to consider while youre reading: 1. Well spend a fair amount of time talking about how external signals are transduced into signals inside the cell. But how important is it to turn all those signals off? 2. How fast are the cells responses to external signals? What are the rate limiting steps? 3. What determines whether or not a cell responds to a particular signal? 4. How come we dont see much about signaling in plants? Are they different, or are they just more difficult to study? 5. How does a cell integrate all of this information? Are there local responses? In other words, can there be multiple responses going on in a cell at one time?...
