Structural Biology in Cell Signalling

Generally cells communicate by the release of chemical signals. They are often secreted from the cell and released into the extracellular space. Regulation of gene expression comprises a comprehensive range of mechanisms that are used by cells to regulate the production of specific gene products, and is familiarly termed as gene regulation. Sophisticated programs of gene expression are extensively observed in biology, for example to trigger developmental pathways, adapt to new food sources, or respond to environmental stimuli. Eventually the gene expressions can be adjusted, starting from transcription, initiation to post translation modification of a protein.
