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 add to their bow. The majority of medications use receptors and intracellular signalling to cause change in the human body. You must understand how these mechanisms work before prescribing drugs. Learn about hormones and signal transduction with Lecturio. In this course 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!

Errors in Lecture Course
By Joseph D. on 03. June 2018 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

Hello Dr. Ahern. Your lectures were phenomenal, but for several of the lectures the slides did not correspond with your lecture (they were of totally different topics) or they changed midway into into unrelated biochemistry topics. It may be best to review them and adjust the errors. However, your presentation was so so good that I was easily able to follow your lectures with the downloaded lecture slides.

Signal Transduction

Great lecturer very knowledgeable of subject matter at an admirable pace. Needed this in depth type of lecture in med school because signal transduction in med-school was highly schematic . Good job
