1. The binding of the first selective radiolabelled histamine H3-receptor antagonist [125I]-iodophenpropit to rat cerebral cortex membranes was characterized. 2. [125I]-iodophenpropit, radiolabelled to a high specific activity of 1900 Ci mmol-1, saturably bound to a single class of sites with a KD of 0.57 +/- 0.16 nM (n = 4) and Bmax of 268 +/- 119 fmol(More)
We investigated the brain penetration of the histamine H3 receptor antagonists thioperamide and clobenpropit using ex vivo [125I]iodophenpropit binding. Homogenates of the rat cortex, striatum and mouse whole brain were prepared 1 h after subcutaneous injection of the H3 antagonists and incubated with [125I]iodophenpropit, a radiolabeled H3 receptor(More)
We examined possible interactions between neuroleptics and the histamine H3 receptor and found an interaction of clozapine with this receptor. In competition binding experiments, using the H3 antagonist, [125I]-iodophenpropit, we observed a Ki of 236 +/- 87 nM. Functionally, clozapine was studied on the H3-mediated inhibition of [3H]-5-hydroxytryptamine(More)
We have characterized the binding of the histamine H3 receptor antagonist [125I]iodophenpropit to mouse brain. [125I]Iodophenpropit saturably bound to mouse brain membranes with a pKd-value of 9.31+/-0.04 nM and a receptor binding density of 290+/-8 fmol per mg protein. Saturation binding analysis revealed binding of [125I]iodophenpropit to a single class(More)
