Example text

The receptors are occupied; thus KD is the concentration of drug that achieves half maximal saturation of the receptor population. This means that drugs with a high KD (low affinity) will require a high concentration for occupancy, whereas drugs with a low KD (high affinity) require lower concentrations. KD is also equal to the ratio of the rate of dissociation of the [DR] complex to its rate of formation. Thus the KD of a drug is a reflection of the structural affinity of the drug and its receptor, that is, how quickly the drug binds to the receptor and how long it stays bound.

2-10). Because cigarette smoke contains compounds that can promote induction, chronic smokers have considerably higher levels of some hepatic and lung drug-metabolizing enzymes. Induction of P450 by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in smoke causes female smokers to have lower circulating estrogen than nonsmokers. glucose–1–phosphate + UTP uridylyltransferase UDP–glucose + P–P N Pyrophosphate R P P P UDP–glucose UDP–glucose + 2NAD + H2O UDP–glucuronic acid + 2NADH + 2H+ dehydrogenase OH COOH UDP–glucuronic acid + UDP–glucuronosyl transferase Salicylic acid COOH H H OH O OH H HO H OH + UDP COOH FIGURE 2–9 Sequence of reactions for conjugation of salicylic acid to form salicyl phenolic glucuronide.

P, Phosphate. The glucuronic acid must first be activated, with glucose-1-phosphate coupling with high-energy UTP to UDP-glucose followed by oxidation to UDP-glucuronic acid before conjugation can occur. 24 General Principles For nearly all drugs, the normal therapeutic range of concentrations is much smaller than the Km. Thus hepatic or other drug-metabolizing enzymes are operating at concentration levels far below saturation, where equation 2-9 reduces to a first-order reaction. Thus drug metabolism typically follows first-order kinetics.
