Structure-Activity Relationships of Histamine H2 Receptor Ligands+
Recent research on histamine H2 receptor agonists was focused on quantitative structure-activity relationships and receptor models explaining the activity of imidazolylpropylguanidines. Their selectivity for guinea pig vs. human isoforms was investigated using H2 receptor-Gsα fusion proteins and attributed to amino acid differences in transmembrane domains 1 and 7. New antagonists result from approaches to improve pharmacokinetic properties and to design hybrid drugs which additionally have gastroprotective or anti H. pylori activity.
