Signaling pathways mediate the interaction between cells and their environment and are responsible for most of the information processing inside the cell. Biological processes are performed by the proteins in different signaling pathways. Three major types of biochemical processes are distinguished:
Metabolic pathways are composed of several chemical reactions, each catalyzed by specific enzyme. Metabolic pathways are basic function of living organism by providing energy and nutrition.
Signal transduction means pathways of molecular interactions that delivery signals between the cell membrane and intracellular end-points, resulting in some response in the cell.
Creative Biomart provides molecular tools which allow you to explore signaling pathways and biological processes.
