Browse cytokine and growth factor signaling pathways

Growth factors and cytokines exert their effects via signaling pathways that transmit the initial receptor-binding signal from the cell surface to the nucleus, resulting in gene expression. Cytokines drive and balance the adaptive and innate immune responses, whereas growth factors control many developmental processes such as angiogenesis and neurite outgrowth.
