How cells communicate is the focus of a new thesis from the University of Gothenburg.

“By studying mammalian , as well as fruit fly nerve cells, we’ve improved our understanding of how cells communicate,” says thesis author Anna Larsson.

In order to survive, the cells in our body need to be able to communicate with each other. One way for them to “talk to each other” is to send a from one cell to another by secreting molecules. The recipient cell interprets the message and can adapt depending on the meaning of the signal.
