An example of a target enzyme is adenylyl cyclase, which converts adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into cyclic adenosine monophosphate (CAMP). The CAMP produced by this enzyme is water soluble, can move freely around the cell and controls a large number of intracellular biochemical processes. It is called a second messenger. The effects of activating the G-protein are terminated by the hydrolysis of the GTP molecule, back to GDP, and the resulting a-GDP molecule reassociates with the py-complex to re-form the trimeric G-protein.

Thus: K + l x [ D ] x ( R - r) = K-I x r Rearranging this equation we get: K - I / K + I = Kd = [D] X ( R - r)/r where Kd is the equilibrium dissociation constant. This equation may be rearranged and presented in terms of the receptor occupation (r): r Kinetics The study of the drug-receptor interaction is called pharmacodynumics. The interaction between a drug molecule and its receptor is a dynamic equilibrium governed by the Law of Mass Action, which states that the rate of a physical or chemical reaction is dependent upon the concentrations of the reacting chemicals.
