Chapter 9 Blog: Cell Communication (Aarti)

Page history last edited by Aarti Patel 13 years, 6 months ago

In the first section of this page, you will write a daily summary of that day's class.  For example in  your chapter 2 blog, your first entry should be titled 9/3/10.  You should then write a one or two paragraph summary of that day's lecture, outlining the major points.  In the second section, you are required to add two items (link to a website, video, animation, student-created slide show, student-created PowerPoint presentation) and one journal article pertaining to a topic in this chapter.  A one-paragraph summary must accompany each item describing the main idea and how it applies to the lecture topic.  Please see the PBWorks help guide for assistance embedding video and other items directly in the page.  I will also produce a how-to video on using tables to wrap text around items and other useful tips.  Please see the syllabus for organization and grading details.

    • This article explains the function of G-protein receptor kinase 2.  GPRK2 is responsible for regulating the process of G-protein-coupled receptors.  This article explains the effect the deactivation of GPCR has on the rest of the cell.  It explains the role of beta-arrestin in the process as well.




This video explains the function of a G-protein.  It shows how it becomes activated through a G-protein receptor.  It also explains how the process of cell signaling can be inhibited or stopped, even if the ligand is still bound.  It show the role of the arrestine in the process.





This video explains the role of cAMP in cell signaling.  It first describes how the cAMP is produced in the cell.  It also explains the function of phosohrylase in the liver cell.
