Histamine H2-binding on guinea pig cerebral cortex
- 22 Downloads
The Kd-values of some histamine H2-active compounds, obtained from radio-ligand-binding studies on a homogenate of the guinea-pig cerebral cortex with3H-tiotidine as the labelled H2-ligand, were compared with the pA2/pD2-value of these compounds on the guinea-pig right atrium and guinea-pig isolated gastric fundus. A good correlation was found between the pKd of the H2-antagonists and their pA2 on the guinea-pig right atrium. A much poorer correlation however was obtained between the pKd of the agonists on the cerebral cortex and their pD2-values on the guinea-pig right atrium and the gastric fundus. This poor correlation between true affinity and H2-activity of the agonists might be explained by spare receptors as a much better correlation was obtained between pKd and pD2 of partial agonists.
