Signal Transduction

What is the definition of signal transduction? I understand the different parts and how it works but I dont understand what it actually is. A way to pass along a message?

Yep! Signal transduction is a way to get messeges from outside the cell to cause a chain of events that eventually gets to the molecule that performs the needed job.
