Alfred Gilman and Martin Rodbell perform seminal studies elucidating the general mechanism of message transduction from the exterior of the cell to its interior. They discover that G-proteins play a crucial role in relaying sensory and hormonal messages to the cells. This finding leads researchers toward an improved understanding of widespread diseases like cholera and diabetes, and wins them the Nobel Prize in 1994.
