steroid receptor: calcium
When assembling a fish aquarium one must add a conditioner to the water that contains bacteria capable of metabolizing fish waste such as ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite that accumulates in the aquaria water. Which of the following components of signal reception and transduction is NOT required for the bacterial two-component regulatory system for metabolizing these nitrogenous waste products?
ligand-gated calcium channel
Which of the following is capable of dephosphorylating molecules?

Which of the following is LEAST likely involved in calcium signaling?
protein kinase A
Estrogen is most likely to exert its effects by regulating
expression of genes and production of specific proteins.
What do enzyme-linked receptors and growth factor receptors have in common?
Both possess kinase activity when bound to a hormone
Which of the following represents the correct sequence of events in the cAMP signal transduction pathway?
G proteinadenylyl cyclasecAMPprotein kinase Acell response
A hormone binds a receptor and activates the cAMP signal transduction pathway ultimately leading to the cell response. Which of the following is NOT a likely mechanism for reversing (or shutting off) cAMP transduction?
Activate adenylyl cyclase.
Which molecule is directly responsible for breaking down cAMP to inactive AMP?
The production of second messengers in signal transduction offers at least two advantages, speed and
What type of receptor does IP3 bind?
ligand-gated Ca2+ channel
