Research Description

Changes in cellular behavior underlie development, disease, and homeostasis. The response of cells to external factors depends upon the synthesis, degradation, and modification of genes and proteins. These regulated events act as signals" for coordinating cell function. Intracellular signaling is highly dynamic
