Although the evolutionary pressure leading to the continued existence of so many receptors is not understood, it is clear that there can be complexity, redundancy, and multiplicity in the effects of a single agonist. Therefore understanding the tissue distribution and biology of these different receptor isoforms is an important goal that will allow development of specific drugs for each novel target. This strategy will provide opportunities for obtaining specific therapeutic responses without unwanted side effects.
For example, various combinations of adrenergic receptors can be present on the same cell. The β1 adrenergic receptor activates adenylyl cyclase through a G-protein (Gs). Because the α2 adrenergic receptor inhibits adenylyl cyclase through a different G-protein (Gi), mutually antagonistic signals will be generated by the presence of both subtypes in response to the same neurotransmitter, NE. In a like manner, additive signals can be generated by the presence of the β2 adrenergic receptor, which also activates adenylyl cyclase through Gs, or independent signals can be generated by the presence of the α1 adrenergic receptor, which activates phospholipase C (Fig.
These advances are discussed in Chapters 5 and 6. Nutraceutical is the term used to describe any substance that is considered a food or part of a food, including nutritional supplements that allege to provide health benefits. Chapter 7 discusses what we know and do not know about the dietary and herbal supplements and their potential to impact conventional drug therapy and medical interventions. An overview of toxicology and poisons with an emphasis on general mechanisms of action of toxicants is presented in Chapter 8.
