Cell Signalling

Signalling through receptor kinases often: Leads to the activation of a cascade of enzyme kinases
Steroids (steroid hormones) are examples of hydrophobic cell signalling molecules that Rely on intracellular receptors
The cell-cell interactions are: Essential for all multi-cellular organisms
The receptors for steroid hormones and peptide hormones are fundamentally different because peptides are hydrophilic and steroids are hydrophobic
An example of an ion commonly used by cells for intracellular signalling is: Ca2+
Intracellular signalling proteins that act as molecular switches are often controlled by phosphorylation reactions True
The fragment binds to receptor proteins on nearby cells and activates signaling pathways resulting in altered gene expression patterns in the cells. Paracrine signaling
Which of the following is NOT a common second messenger in cell signaling? Tyrosine
Signalling through G proteins is self-limiting because G proteins: Hydrolize GTP to GDP inactivating themselves
Which of the following receptors is not a membrane receptor: Steroid hormone receptor
What is the function of Ras during tyrosine kinase cell signalling? It links the receptor protein to MAP kinase pathway
Endocrine signals are Released by cells into bloodstream

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.
