  1. Local Signalling
    • Direct cell-to-cell contact between receptor and signaling molecule
    • Cell Junctions
    • Cell-to-cell recognition
  2. Types of Local Signalling
    • Direct Intercellular Signalling
    • Contact-Dependent Signalling
    • Autocrine Signalling
    • Paracrine Signalling
  3. Autocrine signalling
    cells release signals that affect themselves and nearby target cells
  4. Paracrine signalling
    cells release signals that affect only nearby target cells
  5. Long Distance Signalling
    • Use of Hormones
    • Molecules secreted at one cell location, which travel and affect cells at another location
    • Used by plants and animals
  6. Endocrine Signalling
    Cells release signals that travel long distances to affect target cells
