When the environmental signal goes away, the membrane switch proteins disconnect from each other and the cellular function stops. These protein switches are like the wall switches that turn lights on and off.

The receptor and the effector are connected by a processor protein. When the membrane receptor protein responds to a signal, it changes shape and connects to the processor protein. Both proteins then couple to the membrane effector protein, whose job is to send a signal into the cell and control a specific cellular function.

they all share the same basic structure with two parts: a receptor and an effector. Just like we have receptors in our skin such as eyes, ears, nose and taste receptors, the cell reads the environment through the receptor.

So how exactly does the signal control the cells behavior? I found out that there are switches on the cells surface membrane. There are over a 50,000 different types of switches, each responding to a different environmental signal. While these membrane switches control different cellular functions,
