4 Signal transduction Signal transduction : the sequence of events within the cell that occur in response to ligand binding Different cell types can respond differently to the same signal

5 Cellular responses Signaling can control activities in the cell Growth, maturation, gene expression, metabolism, death Response to ligand binding often involves making new proteins activate or serve as transcription factors Control of gene expression Cells can also respond by activating or inactivating proteins Modification of proteins: cleavage, methylation, phosphorylation, etc.
