Extracellular signalling molecules
Extracellular signalling molecules are cues, such as growth factors, hormones, cytokines, extracellular matrix components and neurotransmitters, designed to transmit specific information to target cells. They are recognized by cognate receptors on the surface of target cells to initiate intracellular signalling cascades that elicit specific cellular responses.
