a: Cell receptor ~
b: a remote control for a television set

What: "To study optic neuritis in a model, Smith is studying a chemical messenger (IL-23) which binds to a receptor or receiver on a cell. In simpler terms, the chemical messenger's relationship to a receptor is like a remote control for a television set. The receptor signals the cell to tell it what to do and then Smith tests the outcome."
