There is ample pharmacological and physiological evidence for yet unidentified histamine receptors in mammalian brain that are linked to a Cl(-) conductance. In invertebrates, two histamine-gated chloride channels (HisCl α1 and α2) are already well known. HisCl channels are members of the Cys-loop receptor superfamily of ligand-gated ion channels and are(More)
Histamine is an important neurotransmitter that exerts its physiological actions through H1-4 metabotropic receptors in mammals. It also directly activates ionotropic GABAA receptor (GABAAR) β3 homooligomers and potentiates GABA responses in αβ heterooligomers in vitro, but the respective histamine binding sites in GABAARs are unknown. We hypothesized that(More)
