Principles of biochemical toxicology

Examine into the biochemical foundation of toxicology has increased swiftly over contemporary years, amidst issues over the antagonistic results of gear, environmental pollutants and occupational dangers. Following on from the acclaimed first variants of ideas of Biochemical Toxicology, John Timbrell has improved the textual content to incorporate: precis sections questions and version solutions completely revised artworkThese good points, plus the recent easy-to-read layout will make biochemical toxicology extra obtainable to undergraduates and postgraduates discovering the topic for the 1st time, fairly whilst venture self-directed learn.

Animal Models in Toxicology 2nd Edition (Drug and Chemical Toxicology)

Reflecting greater than a decade’s worthy of adjustments, Animal versions in Toxicology, moment version is a pragmatic consultant to the typical statistical difficulties encountered in toxicology and the methodologies which are on hand to resolve them. The e-book provides a historic evaluate of using animal types and an summary of extensive issues of metabolism and relevance utilized in toxicology.

Ligand binding often induces accelerated endocytosis of receptors from the cell surface, followed by the degradation of those receptors (and their bound ligands). When this process occurs at a rate faster than de novo synthesis of receptors, the total number of cell-surface receptors is reduced (down-regulated), and the cell’s responsiveness to ligand is correspondingly diminished. A well-understood example is the EGF receptor tyrosine kinase, which undergoes rapid endocytosis and is trafficked to lysosomes after EGF binding; genetic mutations that interfere with this process cause excessive growth factor–induced cell proliferation and are associated with an increased suscep- CHAPTER 2 Drug Receptors & Pharmacodynamics 23 EGF molecules +EGF –EGF Outside Inside Y Y P P Y Y S~P S ATP ADP FIGURE 2–7 Mechanism of activation of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor, a representative receptor tyrosine kinase.

This constant characterizes the receptor’s affinity for binding the drug in a reciprocal fashion: If the Kd is low, binding affinity is high, and vice versa. The EC50 and Kd may be identical, but need not be, as discussed below. Dose-response data are often presented as a plot of the drug effect (ordinate) against the logarithm of the dose or concentration (abscissa). This mathematical maneuver transforms the hyperbolic curve of Figure 2–1 into a sigmoid curve with a linear midportion (eg, Figure 2–2).

These “gene-active” receptors belong to a protein family that evolved from a common precursor. Dissection of the receptors by recombinant DNA techniques has provided insights into their molecular mechanism. For example, binding of glucocorticoid hormone to its normal receptor protein relieves an inhibitory constraint on the transcription-stimulating activity of the protein. Figure 2–6 schematically depicts the molecular mechanism of glucocorticoid action: In the absence of hormone, the receptor is bound to hsp90, a protein that appears to prevent normal folding of several structural domains of the receptor.
