Expert Answer:

1. Autocrine: Mode of hormone action to which hormones bind to the receptors onto the cell and affects the cell that produces it the hormone.

Paracrine: Mode of hormone action where hormones are released from the cells and bind to the receptor on nearby cells and affects their function.

2. Ion channels are pore-forming membrane proteins which allow the selective transport of ions and solutes across the plasma membrane.
