Method of Action – Peptide Hormones



Interact with ligand bound receptor
on plasma membrane – why?
Consequence of interaction with
receptor is signal transduction –
eg., activation of GTP, influence on
adenylate cyclase/cAMP/protein
kinase
Gene activation indirect, but signal
amplification can be more rapid
