A987306,cis-4-(Piperazin-1-yl)-5,6,7a,8,9,10,11,11a-octahydrobenzofuro[2,3-h]quin- azolin-2-amine[1], is a selective and potent H4 receptor antagonist [2].

H4R is one of 4 known G-protein-coupled receptors (H1, H2, H3 and H4 receptors) of histamine. It is for mediating some physiological functions of histamine [3].

In a cell-based Ca2+-flux functional assay, A 987306 had no activation to the receptor, but blocked the H4R activation induced by endogenous histamine. A 987306 potently decreased histamine-mediated binding between rat H4-receptor-containing membranes and GTP-γ-[35S] with a Kb of 6 nM [3].

In Sprague-Dawley rats, after ip injection, A 987306 had a favorable fractional bioavailability (Fip/iv =72%), a half-life of 4.7 h and a Cmax of 1.73 μM at a Tmax of 0.25 h after dosing. After oral dosing, A 987306 had a moderate fractional oral bioavailability (Fpo/iv =26%) with a half-life of 3.7 h and a Cmax of 0.30 μM at a Tmax of 1.5 h after dosing. The plasma protein binding of A 987306 measured in rats was found to be 59% [3].

To human H4R and rat H4R, the Ki values of A 987306 are 5.8 nM and 3.4 nM, respectively. A 987306 reduced scratch responses in mice with an ED50 of 0.36 μmol/kg. A 987306 was found to be selective and bear an IC50 > 810 nM for over 100 kinases [3].
