Martin Rodbell for their discoveries regarding G-proteins, short for guanine nucleotide binding proteins, are a family of proteins involved in second messenger cascades.

Rodbell had shown in the 1960s that GTP (also known as guanylyl imidodiphosphate, guanosine-5-triphosphate, or guanosine triphosphate) is a chemical compound (nucleotide) that is incorporated into the growing RNA chain during synthesis of RNA and used as a source of energy during synthesis of proteins. GTP is also essential to signal transduction in living cells... GTP was involved in cell signaling. It was Gilman who actually discovered the protiens that interacted with the GTP to initiate signalling cascades within the cell.
