Annotation
general or unspecified; prefer specifics; coordinate with PARACRINE COMMUNICATION if pertinent; INTRACELLULAR SIGNALING PEPTIDES AND PROTEINS is also available
Scope Note
Regulatory proteins and peptides that are signaling molecules involved in the process of PARACRINE COMMUNICATION. They are generally considered factors that are expressed by one cell and are responded to by receptors on another nearby cell. They are distinguished from HORMONES in that their actions are local rather than distal.
