About This Quiz & Worksheet

Cells, like people, need to communicate to work together. This quiz/worksheet combo will check your understanding of transduction and the cell communication process, including its steps and how it works.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • Name for the steps of transduction
  • Purposes of different types of enzymes
  • The role of different proteins
  • Importance of second messengers
  • Why signal amplification might be important

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet allow students to test the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related transduction lesson
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding enzymes that transfer phosphate groups to a protein
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about the chain of events when protein kinases act on one another
