2.1 Introduction

Every receptor has to be able to recognize its particular ligand in a specific manner, and become activated by it in such a way that it transmits the signal to the cell. We shall deal with receptor specificity and activation mechanisms. Then we shall see how the same principles of specificity and activation also apply to intracellular receptors.

Hand to Mouth: the truth about being poor in a wealthy world [Audio]
Speaker(s): Linda Tirado | Linda Tirado knows from experience what it is to be poor, to struggle to make ends meet.

However, tracing an outcrop underground was problematical as the only means of exploration was by digging costly trial shafts. The development of exploratory steam-powered drilling in the early 19th century improved matters, but it was not until the mid- to late- 20th century that more a
