Chapter 9 Blog: Cell Communication (Ambika)

Page history last edited by Ambika Sharma 13 years, 7 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 quick video explains what a ligand-gated ion channel is. A ligand-gated ion channel is a transmembrane ion channel whose permeability is increased by the binding of a specific ligand. This short clip describes the function and structure of a ligand-gated ion channel.  

Useful Link

This is a link to a site that has the different parts of cell signaling laid out in a study guide form. One part in particular, the g-protein-coupled receptors, is a good part to look over and review.

Useful Article

This is a very interesting article that investigates the connection between cancer growth and signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 (STAT3) expression. As Dr. Weber stated in class, when something goes wrong in cell signaling, it is not very hard for cancer to be the outcome.
