1

Endocrine Signaling

From endocrine gland to blood stream to target.
Long distance and slow

2

Paracrine Signaling

Secretory cell to adjacent target cell
Short distance
Ex: nerve junctions

3

Synaptic Signaling

Subtype of Paracrine Signaling
Very short distance

4

Autocrine Signaling

Cell signals itself
Fairly fast
Ex: Tumor cells and Immune cells

5

Plasma Membrane Signaling

Membrane attached signal on one cell binding to another cell
Ex: MHC immune Signaling

6

Pheromone Signaling

Signaling over great distance
Usually over air or water
Ex: mating or dominance

7

Kairomone Signaling

Signals from one species to another species
Benefits recipient species but not sender
Ex: mice and their predators
