Although biological molecules are large, they usually have one small ___________ that is responsible for everything they do (usually one thing) Drugs are usually designed to _______ or _____ this function by interacting with the receptor site directly, or by binding to another location that inFuences the site indirectly. The coenzyme folic acid (L) and the anti-cancer drug methotrexate (R) are very similar in structure. As a result, methotrexate is a ________________ of many enzymes that use folates. Lock-and-Key Model e.g., Assume the ____ acts to control the passage of ions across a cell membrane. Whether the ___ (drug or hormone) is bound, controls this pathway, therefore, controlling the biochemistry inside the cell As with locks and keys, a ____________ is required between molecules and their targets to inFuence cellular activity.
