Chapter 9 Blog: Cell Communication (Christina)

Page history last edited by Christina Datuin 13 years, 8 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 video showcases a ligand gated ion channel. I found this video useful because in the beginning of the video, it gave a description of what a ligand gated ion channel is and what its function is. It gave a well-detailed descriptions which was easy to understand. Then it showed what a ligand gated ion channel looks like and how it works. I think it was a great visual and animation of a ligand gated ion channel because I was able to understand what was happening. This video made it a lot easier for me to understand the process of a ligand gated ion channel. 
This is a link that explains homeostatic mechanisms and cellular communication. I like this link because it is very detailed, and well-worded. I find it easy to follow and understand. I have no confusion while reading it. It helped me understand a little more about cell communication. Even though the book describes the same thing, I feel like an outside source is always good. Sometimes when things are worded differently, it makes a topic easier to understand and I think this link is a great example of that. I found it to be very useful. 
http://www.biosignaling.com/content/8/1/30  This article is about growth factor receptor bound proteins. It involves signal transduction pathways. Although I found this article a bit difficult to follow, I can understand parts of what it is talking about because it includes some things we learned in our chapter 9 lectures. I was surprised at how much I knew while reading this article. I think it is an interesting article that really gets your brain working. It ties into what we're learning right now.
