Make cell signalling easy to understand with our interactive model.
The fight or flight response relies on a fast reaction to the hormone adrenaline (epinephrine). One of the responses for liver and muscle cells is to quickly break down glycogen into glucose as an energy source. Cell signalling is crucial for this to happen.
Your students will make a model of the cell signalling pathway that leads from the hormone receptor to the enzyme that breaks glycogen down. It covers G protein-coupled receptor, G protein, cyclic AMP as a second messenger, phosphorylation and protein structure. By using dynamic models what can seem complex becomes clear.
