The three stages of cell signaling are reception, transduction, and response. The binding of a signal to a receptor is part of the reception stage. This stage initiates the cascade of reactions to provide the corresponding cellular response.
What is the immediate result of a signal binding to a receptor?
A. cellular movement
B. Altered DNA use
C. conformational change of the receptor
D. release of IP3
