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 the mid-1970s, a new technology (in the form of biochemical binding) was introduced, and this quickly became a major approach to the study of drugs. Both binding and function are valuable and have unique application, and it is worth considering the strengths and shortcomings of both approaches in the context of the study of drug-receptor interaction.

3 nM isoproterenol on the waveform. The wave is shortened due to an increase in the rate of diastolic relaxation, whereas no inotropic response (change in peak tension) is observed at this concentration. (B) A further shortening of waveform duration (lusitropic response) is observed with 3 nM isoproterenol. This is concomitant with positive inotropic response (increase maximal tension). (C) This trend continues with 100 nM isoproterenol. (D) Dose-response curves for inotropy (filled circles) and lusitropy (open circles) in guinea pig atria for isoproterenol.

Data redrawn from [9]. undetected b-arrestin agonist. For example, one of the most extensively studied drugs in the world, the b-blocker propranolol (discovered in 1964), was not classified as a b-arrestin ERK agonist until nearly 40 years after its initial discovery [13]; this new activity was detected when ERK assays became available.
