1

_________ is the study of the biochemical and physiologic actions of drugs, and their mechanisms of drug action at the cell level and sub-cell level...AKA-What the drug does to the body

PharmacoDynamics

2

Drugs do not impart NEW functions: they either: Produce the ____ action as the body’s own chemicals OR _____ the action of the body’s own chemicals

SAME....BLOCK

3

Action at _____ level is an interaction and binding of the drug to receptor macromolecules.

cellular

4

Receptors may be: metabolic or regulatory _______; proteins or ________ associated with transport mechanism; or structural and functional components of the cell membrane or _______.

enzymes....glycoproteins..nucleic acids

5

A single cell may have _______ of receptor sites.

Hundreds

6

______ binding and _____ binding are the most common methods for a drug to bind to a receptor.

Hydrogen...ionic

7

The AFFINITY of a drug for a particular receptor and the type of binding is intimately related to the drug’s _______.

chemical structure

8

In a typical drug interaction with a protein/glycoprotein receptor, Drug binding occurs at ______ (amino acid residues) on protein structure. (INTERESTING!)

multiple sites

9

In a typical drug interaction with a protein/glycoprotein receptor, binding to one or more amino acid residues causes a ________ change in the protein molecule.

conformational

10

In a typical drug interaction with a protein/glycoprotein receptor, this results in a modification of the _______ structure to bring other amino acid residues closer to the drug = called an “______ fit”.

tertiary..."induced fit"

11

Induced fit is also known as the "________" mechanism of binding.

"lock and key"

12

For drugs that bind within the cell: Receptor protein may be a structural or enzymatic component of the cell membrane = _____ of the cell membrane.

part

13

Proteins that ______ the cell membrane act as drug receptors.

SPAN

14

The term “______” refers to the molecules that bind to the receptor protein or receptor glycoprotein.

ligand

15

What are the 4 possible types of ligands?

1. hormones 2. neurotransmitters 3.growth factors 4.drug molecules

16

When a ligand binds to a SPECIFIC area of the receptor protein on the outer surface of the cell, or within the cell membrane, a ________ occurs in the receptor-protein molecule which is transmitted to the inner surface of the cell membrane.

conformational change

17

What are the 4 well known mechanisms by which receptors induce a response? you got this dawg

1.Ligand-Gated Ion Channels 2.G-Proteins 3.Intracellular Receptors 4.tyrosine kinase receptors

18

Ligand-gated ion channels are found in ______ tissues like nerves in the CNS, neuromuscular junctions, and autonomic ganglia.

excitable

19

For Ion Channel Receptors: The ligand binding occurs directly to ______ at channel site.

receptor

20

For Ion Channel Receptors: the receptors are located on ______-gated channels and ______-gated channels.

ligand-gated....voltage-gated

21

For Ion Channel Receptors: Binding causes the channel to ______, allowing for the influx of ions.

OPEN

22

For Ion Channel Receptors: KEY POINT--->Binding increases cell membrane permeability to ______ and _______ = determines ________ or hyperpolarization of nerve = affects nerve _____.

sodium & potassium..depolarization...firing

23

In signal transduction: ligand binding causes a series of events which generate a ______ messenger.

second

24

Second messengers pass the message from the inside of the cell to the effector ______ (target site of action)

organ...interesting!

25

Some _______ receptors and _________ receptors (e.g. in the autonomic nervous system) depend on G proteins to mediate their actions on cells

hormone...neurotransmitter

26

What are 2 examples of receptors that generate second messengers?

1.Muscarinic Cholinergic Receptors (ACh) 2.Adrenergic Receptors (epi/norepi)

27

What are the 3 effectors activated in a G-Protein pathway?
