    Abstract:

    Alterations to the immune system caused by stress have been considered to markedly increase the risk for immune-related diseases such as cancer and autoimmune disorders. We investigated the potential anti-stress effects of the histamine 4 receptor (H4R) agonist, 4Methylhistamine (4-MeH), in a murine stress model. Mice were placed in 50ml conical centrifuge tubes for 12h followed by a 12h rest. The effects of treatment with 4-MeH (30mg/kg, i.p., twice daily) for 2 days were assessed. At 2 days after physical restraint, mice were sacrificed and tissues harvested. We evaluated the effects of 4-MeH treatment on CD4(+) T cell production, and intracellular IFN-γ and IL-4 expression in these cells. We also assessed IL-1β, IFN-γ, TNF-α, and IL-4 mRNA expression as well as IFN-γ, TNF-α, GITR, Ox40 and IL-4 protein expression in the spleen. The results showed that 4-MeH treatment of stressed mice results in a substantial increase in the CD4(+) T cells as well as in IFN-γ production by these cells. Compared to both untreated and stressed controls. In contrast, IL-4 expression decreased significantly following 4-MeH treatment of mice. Moreover, stimulation of the H4R resulted in up-regulated expression of IL-1β, IFN-γ and TNF-α mRNAs and decreased the expression of IL-4. Western blot analysis confirmed decreased protein expression of IFN-γ, TNF-α, GITR, Ox40 and increased IL-4 in the SC group and treatment of mice with 4-MeH reversed these effects. Our results confirm the significant impact of chronic stress on T cell function and production of Th1/Th2 mediators H4R.

  • Influence of hormonal treatment on the response of the rat isolated uterus to histamine and histamine receptor agonists.
    European journal of pharmacology, 1992
    Co-Authors: E. Rubio, L. Estañ, Francisco J. Morales-olivas, Inocencia Martínez-mir

    Abstract:

    The response of the isolated uterus to histamine and histamine agonists was investigated in progesterone- and oestrogen-treated rats. The uterine inhibitory responses to histamine and 4Methylhistamine (a histamine H2 receptor agonist) were similar in KCl-contracted uteri from progesterone- and oestrogen-treated rats. The histamine H1 receptor agonist, 2-pyridyl-ethylamine, produced a relaxant response only in progesterone dominant uterus. This was inhibited by the histamine H1 receptor antagonist. In the rat isolated uterus which was not preconstricted by KCl, neither histamine, 4Methylhistamine, nor 2-pyridyl-ethylamine produced any effect in the presence or absence of ranitidine. Ranitidine competitively antagonized the histamine-relaxant uterine response in oestrogen-treated rats (pA2 = 7.21 (6.83-7.58)), but not in progesterone-treated rats, except in the presence of clemizole (10(-7) M) when the pA2 value of ranitidine against histamine was similar to that obtained in oestrogen-treated rats (pA2 = 6.74 (6.64-6.85)). These results indicate that treatment with ovarian steroids influences responses mediated by the histamine receptors of the isolated rat uterus. Both histamine H2 and H1 receptors contribute to the uterine inhibitory effect of histamine in progesterone-treated rats.

  • Effect of histamine and histamine analogues on human isolated myometrial strips.
    British journal of pharmacology, 1992
    Co-Authors: María Inocencia Martínez‐mir, Francisco J. Morales-olivas, L. Estañ, E. Rubio

    Abstract:

    1. The effect of histamine and histamine H1- and H2-receptor agonists on isolated myometrium strips of premenopausal women has been examined. The effect of acetylcholine was also determined. 2. Histamine, 2-pyridylethylamine, 4Methylhistamine and acetylcholine, but not dimaprit, produced a concentration-related contractile response in human isolated myometrial strips. Histamine also produced a further contraction in human isolated myometrial strips precontracted with KCl (55 mM). 3. The contractile response to histamine was antagonized by the histamine H1-receptor antagonist, clemizole (0.1 microM) but was potentiated by the histamine H2-receptor antagonist, ranitidine (10 microM). Clemizole (0.1 nM to 10 nM) competitively antagonized the contractile effect of 2-pyridylethylamine (- log KB = 10.5 +/- 0.5). The concentration-response curve for acetylcholine was displaced to the right by atropine 0.1 microM. 4. Atropine (0.1 microM), propranolol (0.1 microM), prazosin (0.1 microM) and indomethacin (1 microM) failed to modify the contractile response to histamine. 5. In human isolated myometrial strips precontracted with KCl (55 mM), clemizole at 1 microM completely abolished the contractile response to histamine and revealed a concentration-dependent relaxation. Dimaprit alone and 4Methylhistamine (in the presence of clemizole), produced concentration-related relaxation with a magnitude similar to that in response to histamine. The relaxant response to dimaprit was antagonized by ranitidine. 6. It is concluded that human isolated uterine strips possess histamine H1- and H2-receptors: the former mediating contraction and the latter relaxation. The predominant response to histamine in this tissue is contraction.
