Histamine H3R receptor activation in the dorsal striatum triggers stereotypies in a mouse model of tic disorders
A novel chemogenetic strategy is used to demonstrate that this dorsal striatal activity is necessary and sufficient for the development of stereotypy: when RAMH-activated cells in the dorsal striatum were chemogenetically activated, stereotypy was recapitulated in KO animals, and when they were silenced the ability of RAMH to produce stereotyping was blocked.
Chronic administration of the histamine H3 receptor agonist immepip decreases l-Dopa-induced dyskinesias in 6-hydroxydopamine-lesioned rats
Results indicate that chronic H3R activation reduces LIDs, and the effects on striatal GABA and glutamate release provide evidence for a functional interaction between D1Rs and H3Rs.
Abnormal behavior, striatal dopamine turnover and opioid peptide gene expression in histamine‐deficient mice
A role for striatal dopamine and opioid peptides is suggested in formation of distinct behavioral phenotype of Hdc KO mice, which showed a distinct behavioral pattern during exploration of novel environment.
Dopamine D1 receptor activation maintains motor coordination and balance in rats
The results support that D1Rs mediate the SCH-23390-induced deficit in motor coordination, and indicate that the function of D1 receptors is necessary to maintain motor coordination and balance in rats.
The Multi-Targeting Ligand ST-2223 with Histamine H3 Receptor and Dopamine D2/D3 Receptor Antagonist Properties Mitigates Autism-Like Repetitive Behaviors and Brain Oxidative Stress in Mice
Preliminary in vivo findings demonstrate the ameliorative effects of ST-2223 on RRBs in a mouse model of ASD, suggesting its pharmacological prospective to rescue core ASD-related behaviors.
Role of the Dopaminergic System in the Striatum and Its Association With Functional Recovery or Rehabilitation After Brain Injury
An overview of the functionality of the dopaminergic system in the striatum and its roles in functional recovery or rehabilitation after TBI is provided.
The histamine H3R antagonist DL77 attenuates autistic behaviors in a prenatal valproic acid-induced mouse model of autism
Modulation of brain histaminergic neurotransmission, such as by subchronic administration of the H3R antagonist DL77, may serve as an effective pharmacological therapeutic target to rescue ASD-like behaviors in VPA-exposed animals, although further investigations are necessary to corroborate and expand these initial data.
Development of a Conformational Histamine H3 Receptor Biosensor for the Synchronous Screening of Agonists and Inverse Agonists
The design and validation of the first screening-compatible H3R conformational biosensor that will aid in the discovery of novel H3 R ligands and can be employed to gain deeper insights into the (in-)activation mechanism of this highly attractive drug target.
A Versatile Sub-Nanomolar Fluorescent Ligand Enables NanoBRET Binding Studies and Single-Molecule Microscopy at the Histamine H3 Receptor.
The synthesis of UR-NR266 is reported, a novel fluorescent H3R ligand that shows fast association to its target and complete dissociation in kinetic binding studies and highlights its value as a versatile pharmacological tool to analyze future H 3R ligands.
Structure‐Activity Relationship of Hetarylpropylguanidines Aiming at the Development of Selective Histamine Receptor Ligands†
New classes of alkylated hetarylpropylguanidines with different functionality and variation in spacer length were synthesized to determine their behavior at the four histamine receptor subtypes, showing up a bad selectivity profile within the histamine receptors family.

The present review appraises the current literature on the involvement of H3 receptors in drug addiction and tries to explain these data within a theoretical framework, as well as provide suggestions for further research.
The Histamine H3 Receptor Differentially Modulates Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) and Akt Signaling in Striatonigral and Striatopallidal Neurons*
H3R activation with the agonist R-(-)-α-methylhistamine is found to produce a unique time- and cell type-dependent profile of molecular signaling events in the striatum, which has implications for a range of pathophysiologies.
Histamine H3 Receptor Regulates Sensorimotor Gating and Dopaminergic Signaling in the Striatum
It is demonstrated that H 3R is an important regulator of sensorimotor gating, and the lack of H3R significantly modifies striatal dopaminergic signaling, which supports the usefulness of H2R ligands in neuropsychiatric disorders with preattentional deficits and disturbances in dopamine receptor–mediated signaling.
Histamine and histamine receptors in Tourette syndrome and other neuropsychiatric conditions
Dopamine D1-histamine H3 Receptor Heteromers Provide a Selective Link to MAPK Signaling in GABAergic Neurons of the Direct Striatal Pathway*
The results indicate that D1-H3 receptor heteromers work as processors integrating dopamine- and histamine-related signals involved in controlling the function of striatal neurons of the direct striatal pathway.
