Cellular Signaling

sending and receiving molecular messages

Cells are in constant communication, deciding when to grow, whether dangers are present, and whether they should move to new environments. They talk to one another by sending small messenger molecules, which are received by receptor molecules on their cell surfaces. Atomic structures have revealed both these signaling molecules and their receptors.
