The Wnt signaling pathway is a group of signal transduction pathways made of proteins that pass signals into a cell using cell-surface receptors.
Receptors for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) are cell-surface receptors expressed by alveolar type I (ATI) epithelial cells and are implicated in mechanisms of alveolar development and sustained pulmonary inflammation.
Among the specific topics discussed are representative classes of peptides and proteins such as enzymes, cell-surface receptors, other membrane proteins, antibodies, fibrous proteins, and some bioactive peptide classes, as well as their various roles in misfolding-based (prion) disease, miscleavage-based disease such as Alzheimer's, missequence-based diseases, and cancer.
Follow-up research showed that this channel is a member of a family of cell-surface receptors that sense both chemicals and temperature.
The virus isolates obtained from the tiger and the leopard contained a gLUtamine at position 222 (226 in H3) and a glycine at position 224 (228 in H3) in HA1, which were also found in other recent H5N1 isolates and which are related to preferential binding to avian cell-surface receptors (7).
This conserved area is hypothesized to play an important role in the recognition of co lagen type IV by cell-surface receptors.
Peptide vaccines designed to block the unique cell-surface receptors that permit immune cells to react against the body's own tissues are also under study.
Endocytosis is fundamental to GPCR biology, regulating the amount of cell-surface receptors, helping to transduce signals from the receptor and controlling the recycling or degradation of the receptor itself.
Overexpression or hyperactivation of ErbB cell-surface receptors drives the growth of many breast cancers.
