General description

This text explains how cells respond to external cues (hormones, cytokines, neurotransmitters, adhesion molecules, extracellular matrix etc), and shows how these inputs are integrated and coordinated. The first half explains the formation and action of second messengers, particularly cyclic nucleotides and calcium, and the mediation of signal pathways by GTP-binding proteins. Later it deals with the formation of complex signaling cascades employed by cytokines and adhesion molecules, starting at the membrane and ending in the nucleus, to regulate gene transcription. It ends with a description at the molecular level of how signaling proteins interact with their environment and with each other through their structural domains.
