Track 16: Signal Transduction
Understanding how drugs affect cellular network structures and how resulting signals are translated into drug effects holds the key to the discovery of medicines. The chemical and physical signals are transferred through a cell as a series of molecular events, most commonly protein phosphorylation, which ultimately results in a response, is known as signal transduction. Proteins responsible for detecting stimuli are generally termed receptors. Each component (or node) of asignaling pathway is classified and departed according to the role it plays with respect to the initial stimulus. Ligands are termed first messengers, while receptors are the signal transducers.
