An example of this phenomenon is the loss of the ability of inhaled b2 adrenergic agonists to dilate the bronchi of asthmatic patients after repeated use of the drug (see Chapter 16). A hormone or agonist can affect the way a cell responds to itself (homologous effects) or how it responds to other hormones (heterologous effects). As an example of the latter phenomenon, exposure of a cell to estrogen sensitizes many cells to the effects of progesterone. Changes in receptor binding affinity and signaling efficiency often occur rapidly.

The atypical enzyme gene has a ubiquitous distribution with an allele frequency of approximately 2% in many populations but is rare to undetectable in Africans, Filipinos, Eskimos, and Japanese. An enzyme variant several times more active than the normal enzyme has been reported that results in resistance to normal doses of succinylcholine. Genetic differences among cytochrome P450s are implicated in differences in clearance of several drug classes. An example is seen in patients treated with the antihypertensive debrisoquine, which is normally hydroxylated to an inactive product in liver.

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.
