cell signaling

Cell signaling is a process to transfer information from outside the cell into the cell.

  1. Ligand binds to receptor
  2. A series of chain reactions occur (not chemical reactions necessarily, just one protein binding leading to another). This is called signal transduction
  3. The cell carries out the function it was told to!
