Introduction

In this unit we turn to the nature of the arts and humanities themselves, and look at the main processes involved in studying them.

Broadly, when you study the arts and humanities you study aspects of culture. You explore people's ideas and beliefs, their cultural practices and the objects they have made. Human history is criss-crossed with the traces of people who did, said and made things and these people were to some extent aware of what they were doing. So all

3.1 Introduction

We are now ready to describe in detail the major intracellular signalling pathways responsible for relaying the signal from the surface receptor to evoke a cellular response. This section will deal with signalling molecules that operate at the cytosolic leaflet of the plasma membrane (trimeric G proteins, monomeric G proteins and lipid-modifying enzymes), second messengers (such as Ca2+, cAMP, cGMP), protein kinases and phosphatases, and finally transcription factors.

2.4 Early disasters

Many of the earliest bridges were simply a wooden trestle type of construction, an efficient and easy-to-build structure, yet providing a secure and safe passage for heavy metal trains. Although we tend to associate such structures with the United States, they were in fact widely used in Britain in the early days of steam locomotion. However, they had a limited lifetime owing to rot, so were gradually replaced by wrought iron girder bridges, often laid on brick or masonry piers.
