Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
Cell signaling is part of the convoluted scheme of communication which rules the rudimentary cellular activities and coordinates the cell activities. The ability of cells to perceive and rightly respond to their microenvironment is the basis of development, tissue repair, and immunity as well as usual tissue homeostasis. Mistakes in cellular data processing are responsible for diseases such as autoimmunity, cancer, and diabetes with comprehending of cell signaling, diseases can be treated competently and, theoretically, artificial tissues can be created. Cell signaling has been most extensively studied in the context of human infections and signaling between cells of a single organism. However, cell signaling may furthermore occur between the cells of two distinct organisms. Cells communicate with each other via direct contact (juxtacrinesignaling), over short distances (paracrine signaling), or over large distances and/or scales (endocrine signaling). Many cell signals are conveyed by molecules that are issued by one cell and move to make communicate with another cell. A large number of diseases are initiated by defects in signalling pathways. The nature of these defects and how they are induced varies tremendously.
