A typical receptor of this type would be a transmembrane protein having an extracellular domain to which the hormone molecule can attach, a 26 Chapter 1 section of the receptor spanning the membrane and ﬁnally an intracellular domain which would be associated with a speciﬁc transduction process. One large, ubiquitous family of such receptors is the seven-transmembrane receptor group, so named because all the receptors in this group have seven membrane-spanning helices connecting the extracellular and intracellular domains.
Hydrolysis of the GTP bound to β-tubulin destabilises the microtubule allowing it to depolymerise, which accounts for the dynamic nature of its structure. Microtubules have various functions within the cell, including an involvement in regulating the movement of vesicles from within the cytoplasm towards the plasma membrane. The movement of vesicles from the Golgi complex to the outer plasma membrane is sometimes called vesicle ‘trafﬁcking’. 9). Various other molecules, such as recognition and anchoring proteins, play an important role in the intracellular transport process of vesicles.
For a more detailed discussion of ovulation, see Chapter 7. Internal feedback In addition to the control loops linking ‘effect’ to hormone via the general circulation, there is considerable regulation within the cells of an endocrine gland. We have already seen how the endocrine cell itself acts as an integrator of probably many different signals arriving at that cell at any given moment. This implies considerable intracellular regulation at various levels, including synthesis, storage, removal or release of the hormone.
