1881, Mary E. Jackson, The Spy of Osawatomie, page 319:
- The handkerchiefs were tied together, and ordering the men to stand between himself and the main body, he began a series of signalings, as if communicating with some one in the ravine, from whence they had just come.
2008, Alexander Sigalov, Multichain Immune Recognition Receptor Signaling, page 82:
- It arises as a consequence of the multiple interactions that occur after a ligand triggers a receptor to initiate a signaling cascade and it ensures that false signals do not propagate to completion.
2012, Nader G. Abraham, Molecular Biology of Hematopoiesis 6, page 157:
- This may be due to the fact that gp130 expression is very low on this subpopulation or that signalings from gp130 alone cannot maintain survival or proliferation in these cells.
