Cellular ligand is said to be an entity that results to form a complex involving a biomolecule in order to serve a biological purpose.
The ligand acts as signal triggering molecule in case of protein ligand binding by binding the specific site on the protein where it is targeted. However the ligand is a small molecule in case of DNA-ligand binding.
