HORMONES Why do you think secondary messengers are needed? Secondary messengers are molecules present inside cells which help communicate signals from the receptors on the surface of the cell to the target particles present inside the cell. First messengers would be considered useless without the help of the secondary messengers, because they do not cause any action (Anthony W.…
