Chapter 11 (pp. 205-215): Signal transduction Learning objectives Understand what protein phosphorylation and protein dephosphorylation means. Remember the stages of a signal transduction pathway. Know the difference between a receptor protein and a ligand molecule. Recognize that receptors may be on the cell surface (membrane receptors) OR inside the cell (intracellular receptors). Be able to illustrate how these work: ion channel receptors, receptor tyrosine kinases, and G-protein-linked receptors. Learn how a signal is amplified by the recipient cell. Know examples of second messengers. Explain how a given ligand can elicit different responses in different cell types. Terms to know include: phosphorylation cascade, kinase, phosphatase, adenylyl cyclase, IP 3, , DAG, scaffolding protein, dimerization,…. .

What is it ?. . What is it ?. . It’s when a phosphate functional group (-PO 4 ) is added to a protein. Why ?. . Why ?. . To regulate the activity of a protein. REVIEW: Protein phosphorylation How ? . . How ? . . The addition of –PO 4 causes a conformational change in the shape/function of a protein. In most cases the protein is “activated”…(in some cases it is “de-activated”). To KNOW. .... the enzymes that ADD phosphates to proteins are called protein kinases Protein DE- phosphorylation To KNOW…. The enzymes that REMOVE phosphate groups from proteins are called protein phosphatases

Reception : A signal molecule ( ligand ) binds to a receptor protein, causing it to change shape…this is often the initial ‘transduction’ of the signal The ligand-receptor binding is highly specific Only specific cells (the ‘target’ cells ) will respond to specific ligands A receptor protein may be located … on the CELL’S SURFACE ( most signal receptors are plasma membrane proteins ) or INSIDE the cell Intracellular receptors may be in the cytoplasm , or in the nucleus These consist of cytoplasmic or nuclear proteins Small or hydrophobic signal molecules use these receptors

Figure 11.6 EXTRACELLULAR FLUID Plasma membrane The steroid hormone testosterone passes through the plasma membrane. Testosterone binds to a receptor protein in the cytoplasm, activating it. The hormone- receptor complex enters the nucleus and binds to specific genes.
