Chapter 11 Cell Communication Cell signaling Signal Transduction o Process by which a signal on a cell surface is transmitted across to cell Chemicals released Cell junctions to communicate Surface receptors to identify and communicate by cell-cell recognition Sending a Signal Local signaling Paracrine o Cytokines o Growth factors Synaptic o Neurotransmitters Long distance signalling Hormones Chemicals released into vascular system of animals and plants Receiving a signal 1)Reception – receive signal o Integral protein in cell membrane Ligand binding (chemical to receptor) o linked to a membrane 2)Transduction binding signal molecule changes receptor protein and initiates transduction and coverts chemical signal to a form than can bring about a cellular response o One step or more often a pathway – series of steps o Second messenger system Cascade One step activates another o Types of second messengers
