Cell Signaling by an Intracellular Receptor

Cell signaling is the biological process by which cells communicate with one another to receive and process signals necessary to respond to changes in the environment. There are three phases to cell signaling: reception, transduction, response. In this Demonstration, a lipid-soluble hormone binds to an intracellular receptor in the cytoplasm. The hormone-receptor complex activates gene expression, which completes the signal transduction.
