Hormones and Signal Transduction

Hormones and Signal Transduction

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

Hormones and signal transduction are complicated and important topics for medical students to study. A majority of medications use receptors and intracellular signalling to cause change in the human body. You have to understand how these mechanisms work before prescribing drugs. Learn about hormones and signal transduction with Lecturio. Here we will cover general topics such as:

  • Receptors and Messengers
  • Protein Coupled Receptors
  • Actions of the Second Messenger

We also review specific topics such as:

  • alpha- and β-adrenergic Receptor Signaling
  • Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Signaling
  • HER2-Receptor and Bcr-Abl
  • Steroid Hormone Signaling

Learn with high yield lectures! Lecture reviews and quizzes are also available to customize your learning environment. Study from your computer, tablet or even your cell phone. Impress your instructors and surpass your colleagues on the boards!

nice illustrations + easy to understand
By Yurim J. on 20. February 2018 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

The lectures are nice, simple & very well explained. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends!

shallow lectures
By gioia b. on 06. February 2018 for β-adrenergic Receptor Signaling

the lectures is shallow; i think that more details are needed. it is ineffectual for the level required from the biochemestry course of the Med University of Florence. cordially gioia

it was increadible

it was perfect and describe a part of endocrine system very well.

Very good!

Thank you Dr. Kevin Ahern!!! Sometimes you speak so fast, but these time was perfect :)
