Characteristics of histamine H1 receptors on HeLa cells.

Author information

Department of Pharmacology, University of Cambridge, UK.


The affinities of antagonists at histamine H1 receptors on HeLa cells have been determined from inhibition of histamine-induced inositol phosphate formation in intact and from inhibition of [3H]mepyramine binding to HeLa cell membranes. The dissociation constants of mepyramine and (+)-chlorpheniramine were similar to values for binding to H1 receptors in other mammalian tissues, but much lower than the values reported in an earlier study with [3H]mepyramine and HeLa cell membranes. Evidence is presented that under conditions employed in the earlier study the binding of [3H]mepyramine is largely to secondary, non-H1 receptor sites.
