Biochemical system known as "The Learning Pathway", the cyclic AMP (cAMP) is a signal transduction cascade and a second messenger system. The cAMP comes in the form of a molecule produced by the ATP. Highly conserved through evolution and used by cellular slime molds as well as advanced mammals. cAMPs primary tool for communication is the Protein Kinase A.

A cellular messenger molecule that is triggered by hormones or other signaling molecules. It is formed by adenylate cyclase.
