The release of chemical signaling molecules from one cell and their binding to a receptor on a target cell is perhaps the most common mode of intercellular communication The signaling molecules can be released directly onto a neighboring cell (e.g. synaptic transmission) or into the blood stream for transport to their sites of action (e.g. hormones). Prior to their release, the chemical transmitter molecules are stored in the cytosol of the cell in specialized membrane-bound organelles… CONTINUE READING
