Because frameshift mutations and non-synonymous base, exchanges in protein coding genes alter the amino acid sequence in proteins such mutations are usually deleterious for the corresponding cell. If they occur in germ line cells, such as oocytes and sperm cells even the next generation is negatively influenced through either malformations of newborn animals or protein malfunctions responsible for certain kinds of inheritable health disorders or illnesses. Mutagenic agents can cause cancer (when applied over a longer period), as has been reported for PAs, AA, cycasin and ptaquiloside; this topic is explored in more detail in the next paragraph.
Some structures of allelochemicals appear to have been shaped during evolution in such a way that they can mimic the structures of endogenous substrates, hormones, neurotransmitters or other ligands; this process can be termed ‘evolutionary molecular modelling’. Other metabolites are less specific and intercalate or alkylate DNA, inhibit DNA- and RNA-related enzymes, protein biosynthesis, various proteins or disturb membrane stability and permeability. 2 Molecular modes of action – an overview This chapter provides a short overview of the modes of action of some important groups of SM (Wink, 1993a, 1999a, 2007, 2008a,b; Teuscher and c02 BLBK226-Wink January 4, 2010 17:17 Char Count= Molecular Modes of Action of Defensive Secondary Metabolites 23 Lindequist, 1994; Roberts and Wink, 1998; van Wyk and Wink, 2004; Wink and Van Wyk, 2008), followed by a more detailed analysis of allelochemicals (especially alkaloids) with cytotoxicity, their influence on neuronal signal transduction and DNA/RNA.
