  • The carbohydrates are not inserted into the membrane -- they are too hydrophilic for that. They are attached to embedded proteins -- glycoproteins.
  • Signal transduction - transmitting a signal from outside the cell to the cell nucleus, like receiving a hormone which triggers a receptor on the inside of the cell that then signals to the nucleus that a protein must be made.
  • The four human blood groups (A, B, AB, and O) differ in the external carbohydrates on red blood cells.
  • Donuts! Each transport protein is specific as to the substances that it will translocate (move). For example, the glucose transport protein in the liver will carry glucose from the blood to the cytoplasm, but not fructose, its structural isomer. Some transport proteins have a hydrophilic channel that certain molecules or ions can use as a tunnel through the membrane -- simply provide corridors allowing a specific molecule or ion to cross the membrane. These channel proteins allow fast transport. For example, water channel proteins, aquaporins , facilitate massive amounts of diffusion.

    • 25. CLASSIFICATION OF INTERCELLULAR COMMUNICATION Intercellular signaling is subdivided into the following classifications: Autocrine signals target the cell itself. Sometimes autocrine cells can target cells close by if they are the same type of cell as the emitting cell. An example of this are immune cells. Paracrine signals target cells in the vicinity of the emitting cell. neurotransmitters represent an example. Endocrine signals target distant cells. Endocrine cells produce hormones that travel through the blood to reach all parts of the body. Juxtacrine signals target adjacent (touching) cells. These signals are transmitted along cell membranes via protein or lipid components integral to the membrane and are capable of affecting either the emitting cell or cells immediately adjacent. 2626

    • 30. Hormones – organic biologically active compounds of different chemical nature that are produced by the endocrine glands, enter directly into blood and accomplish humoral regulation of the metabolism of compounds and functions on the organism level. Hormonoids (tissue hormones) – compounds that are produced not in glands but in different tissues and regulate metabolic processes on the local level, but some of them (serotonin, acetylcholine) enters blood and regulate processes on the organism level.
    • 31. Specific stimulus for hormones secretion is: -nervous impulse -concentration of the certain compound in blood passing through the endocrine gland

    • 33. Membrane receptors To receive and pass on chemical or physical signals, cells are equipped with receptor proteins. Membrane-located receptors can be divided into three parts, which have different tasks. 1. The receptor domain reacts specifically to a given signal 2. The effector domain of the receptor is usually separated by a membrane, a mechanism for signal transfer between the domains is needed. 3. By binding or interconversion, many receptors activate special mediator proteins, which then trigger a signal cascade Other receptors function as ion channels. This is particularly widespread in receptors for neurotransmitters
