A reference on cellular signaling processes, the third edition of Signal Transduction continues in the tradition of previous editions, in providing a historical overview of how the concept of stimulus-response coupling arose in the early twentieth century and shaped our current understanding of the action of hormones, cytokines, neurotransmitters, growth factors and adhesion molecules. The perception of pain throughout the body arises when neural signals originating from the terminals of nociceptors are propagated to second-order neurons in the spinal cord or brainstem, whereupon they are transmitted to specific higher order brain areas (Price, ). Recent studies have begun to elucidate some of the molecular mechanisms underlying the transduction of Cited by: Transduction and cellular mechanisms in sensory receptors.

The common feature that allows neurons and other cells to respond to extracellular signals is the presence of specific receptors in the plasma membrane, which may be similar in their structure and functional properties in different kinds of cells. There may be several different kinds of receptors for individual neurotransmitters. Many receptors can be grouped into families based . Sensory Transduction. Gordon L. Fain, PhD. Sinauer Associates Inc., Sunderland, MA, ISBN , $ Scope: This is a single-authored book that reviews the basic anatomy, physiology, and molecular biology of the sensory systems and cellular signal transduction in primates and humans. The book is divided to ten chapters. Signal transduction is the process by which a chemical or physical signal is transmitted through a cell as a series of molecular events, most commonly protein phosphorylation catalyzed by protein kinases, which ultimately results in a cellular ns responsible for detecting stimuli are generally termed receptors, although in some cases the term sensor is used.
