CONTENT

The molecular mechanisms by which environmental signals are received by cells and translated into a biological response such as development, cell behavior, immune response are currently one of the most-studied areas in modern biology. In this course several prototype- signalling pathways to discuss the mechanistic concepts in signal transduction, to present state-of-art research, and to discuss various experimental approaches will be presented. The most relevant concepts of signal transduction, i.e. protein-protein interactions, phosphorylation and GTP-binding proteins will be discussed.
