On interaction with an active ligandreceptor complex the GDP is exchanged for cGTP, giving a complex of acGTP bg. 2). The a subunit itself acts as a GTPase enzyme, splitting the cGTP attached to it to regenerate an inactive a-GDP subunit. This then reforms the entire inactive molecule by recombination with another bg subunit. The a subunit of the G proteins shows marked variability, with at least 17 molecular variants arranged into three main classes. The variety of different subunits is responsible for various G proteins having different initiating ligands, even though they may share the same intermediate messengers.
1 Altered Ion Permeability: Ion Channels Here, ligand binding causes a change in the structure of the membrane protein complex (the ion channel) altering its permeability to ions (ionotropic). com next page > < previous page page_29 next page > Page 29 The nicotinic receptor at the neuromuscular junction is bound by acetylcholine causing a rapid increase in Na+ flux through its central ion channel, leading to membrane depolarization. Benzodiazepines bind to GABA type A receptors, increasing the opening frequency of the chloride channel, which leads to neuronal hyperpolarization.
Metabolism While metabolism usually reduces the activity of a drug, the activity may be unaltered or increased (a pro-drug is defined as a drug that has no inherent activity before metabolism, but which is converted by the body to an active moiety). Metabolism may also produce a metabolite with equivalent activity to the parent compound, in which case it produces no net effect. In general, metabolism produces a more ionized molecule that allows excretion in the bile or urinethe chief routes of drug excretion.
