Homeostatic regulation of the mammalian cell is mediated, among other factors, by extrinsic signals in the form of hormones, growth substances or pharmacologically active agents which interact with specific cell surface determinants. The molecular details by which the message generated from these interactions is transduced through the lipid milieu to affect cell function are unclear.
