- This category deals with cytobiology;
- protein interactions at the cellular level, such as cytoplasm or organelles
- in contrast to those at the nuclear level,
- which are dealt with in Gene Expression.
- The established pathways, also known as Enzymology, are currently dealt with in the Metabolism category
- However, structural aspects are included in Proteins and Enzymes: Structure.
- where there are also links about the enzymes of transcription and translocation.
- Whereas intracellular events related to cytoplasm are contained in this category,
- intercellular events effecting membrane, signaling mechanisms and second messengers,
- should be found in Cell_Biology,
- or perhaps Developmental_Biology.
- Biochemical events between organs should be found in Physiology,
- or perhaps Endocrinology.
