Isoform-specific bias of histamine H3 receptor agonists

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


The histamine H3 receptor (H3R) is widely expressed in human brain and has been implicated in various pathologies, including Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, dementia and Parkinson’s disease. The H3R is subject to extensive gene splicing that gives rise to a large number of functional and non-functional isoforms. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) can adopt different ligand-induced conformations that give rise to biased signalling, however, this has not been studied for the H3R; furthermore, it is unknown whether splice variants of the same receptor engender the same or differential biased signalling.
