In this review, the complex physical and chemical interactions of drugs with model and biological membranes under normal and pathological conditions are examined at the molecular level. The results of our own published and unpublished structural studies are discussed and correlated with kinetic binding studies to assess the potential role of nonspecific drug interaction with the membrane bilayer in the overall receptor binding mechanism for membrane-bound receptors in heart and brain.
