Chapter 9 Blog: Cell Communication (John T)

Page history last edited by John Tamanas 13 years 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 explains the process of apoptosis. It shows an experiment being done and its effects on the cell. This is the coolest part of cell communication.


This video shows a real life example of cell communication. It has great graphics and narration making it very easy to follow.



This article discusses how astrocytes in the brain communicate through the releases of ATP. One astrocyte releases ATP and this interacts with the membrane receptors of other astrocytes, creating a bigger calcium concentration inside of the cell. This is how astrocytes communicate with each other and other cells.
