The human body consists of numerous number of single cells. The communication mechanisms of the biological information in inter- and intra-cellular levels are very important for maintaining the living organisms in physiological conditions. For this communication, numbers of physiological active substances such as hormones, neuro-transmitters, growth factors and so on have important physiological roles. The imbalance and dysfunction of these cross talk factors will lead to various kings of diseases. We have studied the biological information transduction and processing mechanism in collaboration with University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine in Canada under this grant.
