There is no difference in the magnitude of the independent variable). However, there are potential factors in pharmacological experiments that can negate this assumption and thus lead to serious error in the measurement of drug activity. One is error in the concentration of the drug that is able to reach the receptor. 1 Dissimulation in Drug Concentration The receptor compartment is defined as the aqueous volume containing the receptor and cellular system. , that the concentration within this compartment is the free concentration of drug at the receptor).
