   Importance of Allostery in PharmacologyImportance of Allostery in Pharmacology
 
Allostery refers to the binding of a metabolite at a site other than the chemically active site of a protein. The existence of allosteric sites on receptor molecules has expanded potential drug mechanisms.
 
   Metabolomics in PharmacologyMetabolomics in Pharmacology
 
Metabolomics is the holistic study of metabolism. The application of metabolomics in pharmacology gives rise to a new field called “pharmacometabolomics.” The basic tenet of pharmacometabolomics is to determine the effects of drug treatment on the body’s metabolic scenario. It is also used to identify specific metabolic pathways that are responsible for drug-mediated outcomes.
