Chapter 9 Blog: Cell Communication (Maria W)

Page history last edited by Maria Waterhouse 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 picture shows a process of cell signals. The steps are shown of what each protein or signal does, and the end result is production of glucose from glycogen. Due to amplification, just a few cAMP are used to make thousands upon millions of the last effect.



A video about cell signaling and the different affects a signal can have on different parts of the body. This video really helps because it shows the process of the intracellular receptors and proteins, but it doesn't specifically describe each step, which would have been more helpful




This PubMed article describes the cell signal pathway in cancer cells, mainly those of breast cancer. The cells continued to divide and grow, causing a tumor to form, something we discussed in class. This is a great example of when the cell signal pathway goes wrong and realistic effects that the "domino chain" might create.
