2 B IOLOGICAL F UNCTIONS OF P ROTEINS Signaling compounds Peptide hormones AA derivatives Cytokines Receptors B IOLOGICAL F UNCTIONS OF P ROTEINS Hormones chemical messengers made in 1 part of the body that regulates another part Peptide hormones Ex. Glucagon, parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, insulin Amino acid derivatives Tyrosine thyroid hormones (thyroxine) , catecholamines (neurotransmitters in brain dopamine, Histidine histamine (immune response, associated with allergies) Tryptophan - serotonin (neurotransmitter regulating mood, sleep, appetite), melatonin (regulates sleep-wake cycle)
