#670 - Receptor-Mediated Phenomena II (15D25)
Receptor mediated phenomena are important mechanisms by which cells communicate with their environment. In this session, we are seeking papers which examine a variety of receptor mediated phenomena, associated with such processes as intracellular signaling, cell-cell signaling, mechanotransduction, or tissue remodeling for example. Of particular interest are studies involving apoptosis and differentiation. Modeling and experimental approaches to examining receptor mediated phenomena are welcome.
