<<what exactly is pA2 (selective antagonist potency?)? what is the

estimate its value?  where can one read about it (other than Goodman and 
Gilman's Pharmacology textbook)?>>

You might also want to try Terry Kenakin's textbook "Pharmacologic
Analysis of Drug-Receptor Interaction" (2nd ed. Raven Press, 1993) for an
in depth explanation of pA2 and other methods of quantitative analysis of
ligand-receptor interactions.
