Main Points The chemical nature of the signal determines where the receptors are located in the cell G protein linked receptors work through second messengers Enzyme linked receptors activate downstream proteins by serving as docking sites, change activity of protein once it binds

Cell-Cell Signaling using Soluble Molecules Each specific molecule must have a specific receptor in the target cell, allowing it to respond to the signal Nature of the signal molecule dictates type of receptor needed Steroid (and other hydrophobic) hormones use cytoplasmic or nuclear receptors Peptide (and other hydrophilic) hormones require cell surface receptors 0
