This special issue of The Annual Review of Biomedical Sciences (ARBS) brings together a collection of reviews covering distinct aspects of cellular receptor function and signaling, written by a team of authors whose major focus is unraveling the complexities of conversion of extracellular signals into intracellular signals, via cell surface receptors. The Theme Topic Cell Receptors and Signaling (http://arbs.biblioteca.unesp.br/index.php/arbs/issue/current) includes six contributions, covering discussions about structure, mechanism of action, function and clinical relevance of different cell surface receptors. Altogether, the data point out to important concepts for different receptors and cell/tissue systems which can certainly have impact in terms of screening and discovery of novel mechanisms for clinically validated targets.
