GO term:signal transducer activity
Synonym: hematopoietin/interferon-class (D200-domain) cytokine receptor signal transducer activity
Synonym: quorum sensing response regulator activity
Synonym: quorum sensing signal generator activity
GO id:GO:0004871
Alternate id: GO:0009370, GO:0005062, GO:0009369
Definition:Conveys a signal across a cell to trigger a change in cell function or state. A signal is a physical entity or change in state that is used to transfer information in order to trigger a response.
