Electrostatic attraction (A). A pos- itive and negative charge attract each other. Ionic interaction: An ion is a particle charged either positively (cation) or negatively (anion), i.e., the atom lacks or has surplus electrons, respectively. At- traction between ions of opposite charge is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them; it is the initial force drawing a charged drug to its binding site. Ionic bonds have a relatively high stability. Dipole-ion interaction: When bond electrons are asymmetrically distribut- ed over both atomic nuclei, one atom will bear a negative (!–), and its partner a positive (!+) partial charge. The mole- cule thus presents a positive and a nega- tive pole, i.e., has polarity or a dipole. A partial charge can interact electrostati- cally with an ion of opposite charge.

As- sociation with the receptor activates the G-protein, leading in turn to activation of another protein (enzyme, ion chan- nel). A large number of mediator sub- stances act via G-protein-coupled re- ceptors (see p. 66 for more details). An example of a ligand-gated ion channel (B) is the nicotinic cholinocep- tor of the motor endplate. The receptor complex consists of five subunits, each of which contains four transmembrane domains. Simultaneous binding of two acetylcholine (ACh) molecules to the two !-subunits results in opening of the ion channel, with entry of Na+ (and exit of some K+), membrane depolarization, and triggering of an action potential (p. 82).

This means that the time course of the effect exhib- its dose dependence also in the pres- ence of dose-linear kinetics (C). In the lower dose range (example 1), the plasma level passes through a concentration range (0 0.9) in which the concentration effect relationship is quasi-linear. The respective time cours- es of plasma concentration and effect (A and C, left graphs) are very similar. However, if a high dose (100) is applied, there is an extended period of time dur- ing which the plasma level will remain in a concentration range (between 90 and 20) in which a change in concentra- tion does not cause a change in the size of the effect. Thus, at high doses (100), the time-effect curve exhibits a kind of plateau. The effect declines only when the plasma level has returned (below 20) into the range where a change in plasma level causes a change in the in- tensity of the effect.
