In what portions of the cell do we find the different kinds of substances that make up living organisms? AND what reactive chemical groups do they contain that might interact (non-enzymatically) with incoming xenobiotics? (Be specific in your answers. Try to use examples. You should be able to write out the chemical groups.)
In nucleus you have different types of proteins that control the
metabolism as well as it reproduces
other cells but the reactions take place in endoplasmic reticulum. Nucleus has carbohydrates, nucleic-
acids, proteins and lipids and therefore have functional groups like aldehydes (-CHO), carboxyl groups
(like -COOH), amines(-NH2) etc which can interact with incoming xenobiotics (foreign substances)
For example drugs can form conjugates when they react with amino acids.
