Explore cell signaling with the Amoeba Sisters! This introductory video describes vocabulary such as ligand and receptor. It includes the stages of cell signaling (reception, transduction, and response) and different types of signaling including autocrine, paracrine, and endocrine. This is just an introduction to a series on signaling that we hope to expand on in the future!Factual References:OpenStax, Biology. OpenStax CNX.
