The binding of a drug to a plasma protein is reversible, with a dynamic equilibrium being established between those molecules that are bound and those that are free. Thus at any moment in time a molecule of drug can be bound, and the next moment it can be free; its movement on and off the carrier being random. The unbound molecules are free to interact with the tissues, and thus they are pharmacologically active. In contrast the bound drug acts as a circulating reservoir, but is pharmacologically inactive.
