Sample text

Binding pocket ... while the other enantiomer is only a partial match. Figure 1-10 Stereochemistry and 3-Dimensional Fit One enantiomer of a racemic pair is often observed to bind more avidly to (has greater affinity for) a receptor than does the other enantiomer of the pair. Because the only difference between them is the stereochemistry, the 3-dimensional shape of a molecule must be a crucial characteristic for binding affinity. The relation between chemical structure and biologic response is 12 known as the SAR and is a common focus of drug discovery efforts.

EFFECT EFFECT EFFECT Addition of antagonist blocks ligand-receptor interactions, reducing the cumulative effect. EFFECT Figure 1-9 Antagonists Some molecules have physiochemical and stereochemical traits that impart affinity for a receptor but cannot activate it. Such molecules bind to (occupy) receptors and block access of agonists, thereby reducing the effects of agonists. Such pharmacologic antagonists do not elicit biologic effects directly; they modify the physiologic process that is maintained by agonist action (eg, by neurotransmitters).

Examples of drugs that are receptor antagonists are atropine (muscarinic cholinergic), d-tubocurarine (nicotinic cholinergic), atenolol (adrenoceptor), spironolactone (mineralocorticoid), diphenhydramine (histamine H1), ondansetron (5-HT), flumazenil (benzodiazepine), haloperidol (dopamine), and naloxone (opioid). Chemical antagonism (eg, neutralization of gastric acid by chemical bases) or physiologic antagonism, in which an effect of one drug opposes an effect of another agent (eg, epinephrine used to counteract the histamine response to a bee sting), of drug effects can also occur.
