M Paton [17]: The guinea pig longitudinal muscle is a great gift to the pharmacologist. It has low spontaneous activity; nicely graded responses (not too many tight junctions); is highly sensitive to a very wide range of stimulants; is tough, if properly handled, and capable of hours of reproducible behavior. — W. D. M. Paton (1986) All of drug discovery relied upon such functional assays until introduction of binding techniques. , the experiments were labor intensive). Therefore, the numbers of compounds that could be tested for potential activity were limited by the assay format.

In general, it should be recognized that the most carefully designed experimental procedure can be completely derailed by processes causing differences in what is thought to be the concentration of drug at the receptor and the actual concentration producing the effect. Insofar as experiments can be done to indicate that these effects are not operative in a given experiment, they should be. 10 CHAPTER SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS l l l It is emphasized that drug activity is observed through a translation process controlled by cells.
