    Solution:

    Hormones which interact with membrane-bound receptors normally do not enter the target cell, but generate second messengers which in turn regulate cellular metabolism.

    cAMP, Ca2+IP3 and DAG are examples of second messengers. 

    G proteins, by themselves, are not second messengers. They activate enzymes (e.g., adenylate cyclase) that produce second messengers.
