Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Signal Transduction 1 : Components and Events

Logo for Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Signal Transduction 1 : Components and Events
In this tutorial/simulation, students examine generalized components and events of signal transduction, first using the metaphor of a pool game and then in the Fight-or-Flight response. Students will: 1)observe animations of signal transduction in the game of pool, in the organ systems of a student, and in a liver cell responding to adrenalin; and 2) identify components (receptor, intermediaries, target) and events (signal engagement, relay, and interaction with target) in each animation.

Part one of three excellent interactive exercises that investigate the concept of signal transduction. Students are required to draw conclusions from information and data provided. This is a very difficult concept for students. Very well organized and well written. Have used in class successfully.
