every drug has its own effect

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

hi, maybe it would be best if you actually researched your own information if you have an exam. best of luck, hopefully you'll pass with your own intelligence.

What I think the question gets at is how do the drugs effect in general? I think the best answer to that question is that most drugs block or otherwise inhibit. But its true every drug effects the blockade in a different way.

That raises an interesting question. Are there drugs out there that cause upregulation of cell processes already happening to cause a desired effect...
