Question:

For each receptor, there is an active site its corresponding ligand recognizes for binding interactions to activate the receptor. If you know the structure and amino acid composition of the active site, how can this information help you develop a medication for an illness caused by an overactive receptor?

Answer:

A chemical mimic of the ligand can be produced to inhibit the receptor, rather than activate it. The mimic can have a low affinity for the receptor to avoid a complete inhibition of all receptor activity (which can be harmful).
