About This Quiz & Worksheet

How are signals sent from cell to cell, and how does this communication help cells develop and reproduce? You can use the practice questions in this quiz and worksheet to help you assess your knowledge about this biological process.

Quiz and Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • The term used to describe the final step in cell signaling
  • The cell that receives the signal during this communication process
  • What a signaling molecule binds to
  • When reception occurs during cell signaling
  • How it is known that cell signaling is an ancient process

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz will allow you to test the following skills:

  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about cells in a different light
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding the molecules and proteins involved in the cell signaling process and interpret it correctly
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the terms used to describe cellular activity during the communication process
