We undertook these studies to characterize the molecular basis of the interaction of histamine with the H2 receptor. Key areas of homology in the structures of the histamine H2 and beta 2 adrenergic receptor suggested specific transmembrane amino acids that might be important for binding of histamine. A third transmembrane aspartic acid of the histamine receptor (Asp98), thought to serve as a counter anion that interacts with the cationic amine moiety of histamine, was mutated to Asn98, and the… CONTINUE READING
