Cell Signaling AP Chapter 11
Evolution of cell signaling Similarities in pathways in bacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals suggest an early evolution of signaling pathways
Bacteria communication bacteria talking to each other Quorum sensing- concentration of signaling molecules allows bacteria to sense their local density Ex- Vibrio – glowing bacteria (luciferase enzyme) give off auto inducers into their environment
Quorum sensing can lead to the formation of biofilms
Slime molds – chemical signaling Slime molds live as solitary amoebae. When slime mold cells begin to starve or dehydrate, they release a pheromone-like chemical called cyclic AMP. This messenger molecule alerts other slime mold amoebae. They detect the cAMP and follow the scent to join forces with the troubled amoebae forming a large mass of cells. Other slime mold amoebae detect the cAMP and follow the scent to join forces with the troubled amoebae.
cAMP is an important chemical word in the language of cells and seems to be understood and made by all cells, even our own.
Fruiting body formation in fungi chemical signaling
Local and long-distance signaling Direct cytoplasmic connections: - gap junctions or plasmodesmata in plant cells - contact of surface molecules (cell-to- cell recognition via receptors
Plasmodesmata in plant cells
Gap junctions in animal cells
Immune cells – direct contact
Local regulators – nearby cells paracrine signaling – only includes cells of a particular organ synaptic signaling – between neurons
Long distance endocrine signaling nerve transmission
3 stages of cell signaling 1.Reception 2.Transduction 3.Response

Ligand – the signal molecule, fits like a lock and key to receptor Most ligands bind to cell surface receptors; some bind to intracellular receptors Usually induces a shape change in receptor proteins shape
Types of receptors Bind with water-soluble molecules on membrane: G-Protein-linked Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Receptor Ligand-gated Ion Channel Bind with hydrophobic receptors: Intracellular Receptors
G- Protein-Linked Receptors 7 protein helices that span the membrane Binding of the ligand to the G-protein receptor, activates a specific G protein located on the cytoplasm side. How - GDP becomes GTP. The activated G-protein activates a membrane-bound enzyme which continues on its pathway. The GTP goes back to GDP. Animation: Membrane-Bound Receptors that Activate G Proteins

How important is the G-protein system? Used by hormones, neurotransmitters, sensory reception, development…. Many bacteria produce toxins that interfere with with G-protein systems Up to 60% of medicines influence G- protein pathways
Tyrosine kinase receptors Receptor tyrosine kinases are membrane receptors that attach phosphates from ATP to tyrosines (Remember kinase…ATP.) Once the receptors are activated, relay proteins bind to them and become activated themselves. A receptor tyrosine kinase can trigger multiple signal transduction pathways at once

Tyrosine Kinase Receptors Binding of the signal molecules causes the two polypeptides to join.
They are activated and act as enzymes to phosphorylate the tyrosines in the tails.
The receptor protein is now recognized by relay proteins, triggering different effects.
Ligand-gated ion channel A ligand-gated ion channel receptor acts as a gate When a signal molecule binds as a ligand to the receptor, the gate allows specific ions, such as Na + or Ca 2+, through a channel in the receptor Ex- in neurotransmitters and nervous signal transmission
Intracellular Receptors Some receptor proteins are intracellular, found in the cytosol or nucleus of target cells Small or hydrophobic chemical messengers can readily cross the membrane and activate receptors Examples of hydrophobic messengers are the steroid and thyroid hormones of animals An activated hormone-receptor complex can act as a transcription factor, turning on specific genes

Signal Transduction Allow for amplification of signals Signal coordination and regulation Involves 1) second messengers (cAMP and Ca +2 ) 2) relay proteins such as protein kinases
How does epinephrine work?...an example of cAMP messenging
Epinephrine acts via cyclic AMP (cAMP) as a second messenger. An activated G protein activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase (THINK CYCLING!) which turns ATP to cAMP. Then cAMP can activate other inactive molecules to reach the desired product. action of epinephrine Video | DnaTube.com - Scientific Video Site

cAMP second messenger systems Membrane Structure
Calcium ions also act as second messengers. One example is activating an enzyme phospholipase C to produce two more messengers which will open Ca channels. The signal receptor may be a G protein or a tyrosine kinase receptor.

RELAY PROTEINS Enzymes called protein kinases are also important links in transduction. A protein kinase catalyzes the transfer of PHOSPHATE GROUPS from ATP to another protein to activate it. Amplification is possible in these type of pathways.

The Specificity of Cell Signaling and Coordination of the Response Different kinds of cells have different collections of proteins which allow cells to detect and respond to different signals. Even the same signal can have different effects in cells with different proteins and pathways
Fig Signaling molecule Receptor Relay molecules Response 1 Cell A. Pathway leads to a single response. Response 2 Response 3 Cell B. Pathway branches, leading to two responses. Response 4 Response 5 Activation or inhibition Cell C. Cross-talk occurs between two pathways. Cell D. Different receptor leads to a different response. Pathway branching and cross-talk further help the cell coordinate incoming signals Same signal - different effects in cells with different proteins and pathways
Signaling Efficiency: Scaffolding Proteins and Signaling Complexes Scaffolding proteins are large relay proteins to which other relay proteins are attached Scaffolding proteins can increase the signal transduction efficiency by grouping together different proteins involved in the same pathway
Fig Signaling molecule Receptor Scaffolding protein Plasma membrane Three different protein kinases
Apoptosis (programmed cell death) integrates multiple cell-signaling pathways Apoptosis is programmed or controlled cell suicide A cell is chopped and packaged into vesicles that are digested by scavenger cells Apoptosis prevents enzymes from leaking out of a dying cell and damaging neighboring cells Apoptosis is important in shaping an organism during embryonic development
