    could someone help me answer this?
    Vasoconstriction occurs when epinephrine (adrenaline) binds to the a-adrenergic receptor on vascular smooth muscle cells. One approach to treating high blood pressures is to administer competitive inhibitors that bind to the a-adrenergic receptor. The Kd for binding of epinephrine to this receptor is ~0.6 mM.

    Which of the following compounds might be a good candidate drug for high blood pressure? Their Kd for binding to the a-adrenergic receptor are shown.

    Compound A: Kd = 1pM
    Compound B: Kd = 60 pM
    Compound C: Kd = 0.6 mM
    Compound D: Kd = 60 mM
    Compound E: Kd = 60 mM
