|Description||Chlorpheniramine (Chlorpheniramine maleate, Chlorphenamine) is an histamine H1 receptor antagonist with IC50 of 12 nM.|
Chlorpheniramine inhibits the [3H]mepyramine binding to the histamine H1 receptor in guinea pig cortex with IC50 of 8.8 nM.  Chlorpheniramine inhibits the proliferation of MCF-7, MDA-MB 231, and Ehrlich cells in a dose-response manner, and significantly reduces the ornithine decarboxylase mRNA translation by 50%-70% at the 250 μM.  Chlorpheniramine displaces of [3H]pyrilamine from human histamine receptor subtype 1 expressed in CHO cells with IC50 of 66 nM. Chlorpheniramine displays antimalarial activity against CQS strain (D6) and MDR strain (Dd2) of P. falciparum with IC50 of 61.2 uM and 3.9 uM, respectively. Chlorpheniramine displays cytotoxicity against the proliferation of concanavalin A-induced murine splenic lymphocytes with IC50 of 33.4 μM.  Chlorpheniramine treatment in human salivary gland cells more significantly inhibits the histamine-induced [Ca2+]i increase in a concentration-dependent manner with IC50 of 128 nM than that of carbachol-induced [Ca2+]i increase with an IC50 of 43.9 μM. 
|In vivo||Oral administration of Chlorpheniramine inhibits histamine-induced mortality in guinea pigs with an ED50 of 0.17 mg/kg.  Oral administration of Chlorpheniramine (10 mg/kg) significantly inhibits short-duration scratching in BALB/c mice stimulated by ovalbumin active cutaneous anaphylaxis and in ICR mice subcutaneously injected with histamine, but not long-duration scratching seen in NC/Nga mice, in contrast to that of dexamethasone or tacrolimus.  Administration of Chlorpheniramine (20 mg/kg) significantly abolishes the increase in REM sleep in rats induced by immobilization stress due to the blockage of the histaminergic and cholinergic mechanisms generating REM sleep. |
H1-Antihistaminic Activity:The segments (1 cm) of isolated ileum from guinea pigs are suspended in an organ bath containing Tyrode solution (ventilation, 32 °C). The contractile responses to histamine (0.54 μM) are measured with an isotonic transducer. A set concentration of Chlorpheniramine is added in the organ bath 5 minutes before the addition of histamine. IC50 value of Chlorpheniramine is calculated by the probit methond.

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
