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 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 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 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)
