Very potent, high affinity H3 agonist (KD = 50.3 nM) that displays > 200-fold selectivity over H4 receptors. Inhibits H3-mediated histamine synthesis and release in the CNS and stimulates H4-mediated eosinophil shape change (EC50 = 66 nM). Part of the Histamine H3 Receptor Tocriset™. (S)-(+)-α-Methylhistamine dihydrobromide (Cat. No. 0572) also available.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
