Which process requires cellular energy?
active transport
The ability of certain hormones to attach to the a cell is primarily determined by
receptor molecucles in the cell membrane
Communication between cells is affected if there is decreased ability to produce
hormones and nerve impulses
To communicate between cells, many multicellular animals use
nerve signals and hormones
The pancreas produces one hormone that lowers blood sugar level and another that increases bloood sugat level. The interaction of these two hormones most directly helps huamns to
