Cell Signaling:
Long distance = ESSENTIAL for homeostasis
o Nervous and endocrine coordinate many homeostatic
functions
Metabolism, heart rate, body temperature
o Chemical and electrical communication
Neurotransmitters:
o Chemical signal: neuron target cell
o Only affect cells with receptor for chemical
Hormones:
o Endocrine bloodstream target cell (with receptor)
Neurohormones:
o Neuron bloodstream target cell (with receptor)
Chemical Mediated Cell-Cell Communication:
Autocrine: cell makes and uses signal
Paracrine: signal acts on neighboring cells
Cytokine: chemical signal made by any cell in response to stimuli
Contact-Dependent Signals:
GAP Junctions:
o Protein channels form cytoplasmic bridges
o Direct transfer of chemicals and electrical signals
o Protein “connexin”
Cell Membrane in Communication:
Must pass through in order to be processed
o Ion channels
o Enzymes

Document Summary

Ability of the body to maintain a relatively constant internal environment. Regulated through negative feed back loops: decrease the impact of change. Extracellular fluid (interstitial fluid + plasma) bathe cells: act as a transition between external environment and intracellular fluid cytoplasm. Centrioles: cell division splitting equally directing dna. Long distance = essential for homeostasis: nervous and endocrine coordinate many homeostatic functions. Metabolism, heart rate, body temperature: chemical and electrical communication. Neurotransmitters: chemical signal: neuron target cell, only affect cells with receptor for chemical. Hormones: endocrine bloodstream target cell (with receptor) Neurohormones: neuron bloodstream target cell (with receptor) Cytokine: chemical signal made by any cell in response to stimuli. Gap junctions: protein channels form cytoplasmic bridges, direct transfer of chemicals and electrical signals, protein connexin . Must pass through in order to be processed: ion channels, enzymes, receptors. Movement of molecules from an area of high conc. Protein carrier binds to specific molecule carried to other side of membrane.
