How to use quotes

Original passage:

The current challenge is to simulate the time- and concentration dependent effects of irreversible inactivators, quasi-irreversible inhibitors and inducer compounds on the pharmacokinetics of well established probe substrates.

Source: Fowler, S., and Zhang, H. (2008) AAPS J. 10, 410-424.


Satisfactory quoting:

Fowler and Zhang (2008) stated that “the current challenge is to simulate the time- and concentration dependent effects of irreversible inactivators, quasi-irreversible inhibitors and inducer compounds on the pharmokinetics of well established probe substrates”.
