    This transformation initiates consecutive alterations (signal transductions) along the whole integral receptor complex up to its intracellular end. This triggers a chain of biochemical reactions leading to alterations in the physiological (biochemical) state of the whole cell. If this alteration is necessary and favorable for this cell or respective organ or even for the whole organism, we have a normal regulation of cell and organism life. It is also beneficial if the ligand is a drug molecule, the right dose of which enables to correct the physiological state of a sick cell.

    2 Time Explanation of the term “area under curve”. Body burden is the total amount of the chemicals that are present in a body at a given point in time. Sometimes, it is also useful to consider the body burden of a specific single chemical, such as lead, mercury, or dioxin. Organisms have metabolizing membrane barriers such as placental (fetomaternal) or blood–brain (hematoencephalous) barriers that hinder penetration of various foreign substances into the fetus and brain, respectively. Unfortunately, these barriers are not perfect.
