HOW INFORMATION TRAVELS IN A CELL AND BETWEEN CELLS

- The key components of genetics: chromosomes, DNA, RNA, and protein production.
- Cell Signaling and Drug Action
- Growth factors (the blue and purple spheres) bind to certain receiving proteins, called receptors, which relay the growth factor signals into the cell. These signals are further relayed through a large network of proteins by kinases, which eventually change the activity of genes within the nucleus.
- Cell signaling is the process used by cells to communicate with other cells. Signals (hormones, growth factors, calcium, nitric oxide, etc.) originate in a cell, leave, and then enter and are interpreted by another cell.
- The protein production process in an animal cell, from transcription and translation, to the folding of amino acids into functional proteins.

"Michael is a deep well. He doesn’t have his shtick. He’s willing to make himself look like an idiot to get where he wants to go. It’s like painting the most beautiful landscape, then taking a cloth and wiping all that beauty away to start again. To be willing to throw all that good work out of the window. He’s not vain. He’s not precious. He’s the boxer and I’m the trainer in that light. And every fight will be different."
