What does an Isomerase do?
Creates an isomer
What does an Epimerase do?
Creates an epimer, which differs around one chiral carbon
What does a Mutase do?
Relocates a functional group within a molecule (intrachain)
What does a Transferase do?
Relocates a functional group from one molecule to another (interchain)
What does a Kinase do?
Adds Phosphate group to substrate using ATP
What does a phosphorylase do?
Adds inorganic phosphate to substrate. No ATP used

Catalyzes oxidation-reduction reactions (gaining or losing an electron)
What does thio do?
Breaks S bonds
What is diffusion?
From high to low concentration. No ATP used
What is Active Transport?
Goes against concentration gradient. Requires ATP
What is zero-order kinetics?
Metabolism independent of concentration (rate of elimination is constant)
What is 1st-order kinetics?
Constant drug percentage metabolism over time depends on drug concentration (rate of elimination is directly proportional to drug concentration)
What is efficacy?
What is potency?
Amount of drug needed to produce effect (lower w/ comp antagonist)
What affects potency?
What is Kd?
Concentration of drug that binds 50% of receptors
What is the Ec50?
Concentration of drug that produces 50% of maximal response.
What is competitive inhibition?
Fights for active site, no change in Vmax, potency decreases
What is Non-competitive inhibition?
Binds a regulatory site, no change in Km, Efficacy decreases, decreased Vmax
What is the Peak level?
4 hours after does (too high - decrease dose_
What is the Trough level?
2 hours before next dose (too high - give less often)
What is the T1/2?
Half-life, the time it takes the body to use half of the drug ingested.
