Cell Signaling, Trafficking, and Polarity

Each living cell senses and integrates external cues and makes corresponding responses. The cellular responses are mediated by a complex network of intertwined signalling pathways and molecular transport systems in the cell. Cell polarity is one type of cellular response, by which a cell exhibits spatial differences or "unevenness" in its structure and content, to enable specific cellular functions. Misregulation of cell signalling, trafficking, and polarity is a major cause of a wide range of disorders in living organisms.
