Flashcards in Pharmacodynamics Deck (6)
What is pharmocodynamics?
is the study of biochemical and physiological effects of drugs at the receptor level and the response produced following drug-receptor interaction(s).
What is the shape the receptor assume is a result of what?
primary,secondary, tertiary, quatenary interactions
What is the primary sequence?
amino acid backbone
what is the secondary structure?
from interactions between nearby amino acids in the polypeptide chain which can lead to formation of α-helix, β-pleated sheets or β-barrel.
What is the tertiary structure?
interactions of amino acids more distal to one another along a single amino acid chain.
