Dynamic Interactions of the Second Messenger Systems
The response of living cells to changes in cell environment depends on the production and actions of second messenger molecules. The two most extensively studied second messengers are Ca2+ and cAMP, each of which has been demonstrated to regulate unique metabolic reactions and pathways. Examination of these regulatory reactions suggests that the two second messenger systems also undergo complex interactions during cell activation that serve to modulate the overall cell response.
