Receptor Biology

WVSOM: Subject 5 -- Receptor Biology

Receptor a cellular factor that recognizes and binds a specific ligand to induce a response
Ligand a molecule bound by another molecule such as a receptor
Intercellular Signaling Molecule nutrient ligand secreted by one cell to induce a response in another cell
Hormone intercellular signaling molecule that controls metabolism or physiology
Growth factor intercellular signaling molecule that controls cell cycle progression, cellular differentiation, or morphogenesis during development
Cytokine growth factor involved with hematopoiesis
Isoreceptors different receptors bound and activated by the same ligand, often inducing distinct responses in different cells
Paracrine for an intercellular signaling molecule to diffuse over a short distance, usually through interstitial spaces, to induce a response
Endocrine for an intercellular signaling molecule to diffuse through the blood
Hydrophobic Ligands Steroids (cholesterol derivatives) Fatty acid derivatives (prostoglandins, retinoic acid)
Hydrophilic Ligands Amino acid derivatives (catecholamines-tyrosine, histamine-histidine, serotonin-tryptophan) Peptides and proteins (insulin, glucagon, FSH, TGFβ, etc.) Nucleotides (cAMP) No carbohydrates - this is the only major class of biochemicals not used as recept

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
