Different scaffolding proteins promote the connection and interaction of different signal transduction enzymes with each other and the receptor that starts the process.

Work Step by Step

You could use a larger pencil case to hold a knife, a block of survival food, and a pen in there and be ready to survive a small crisis and write down what happened. These cases are tools to hold other tools, but the exact types of tools you have will determine what you can process.
