Biological Activity

Description Diphenhydramine HCl is a first-generation histamine H1 receptor antagonist, used in various allergic conditions such as rhinitis, urticaria and conjunctivitis.
Histamine H1 receptor [1]
In vitro

Diphenhydramine blocks tetrodotoxin-sensitive (TTX-S) and tetrodotoxin-resistant (TTX-R) sodium currents with K(d) values of 48 mM and 86 mM, respectively, at a holding potential of -80 mV. Diphenhydramine shifts the conductance-voltage curve for TTX-S sodium currents in the depolarizing direction but has little effect on that for TTX-R sodium currents. Diphenhydramine causes a shift of the steady-state inactivation curve for both types of sodium currents in the hyperpolarizing direction. Diphenhydramine produces a profound use-dependent block when the cells are repeatedly stimulated with high-frequency depolarizing pulses. [1] Diphenhydramine induces apoptosis in a dose- and time-dependent manner in both CCRF-CEM and Jurkat cell lines, whereas Cimetidine fails to induce significant effects at similar concentrations. Diphenhydramine-induced apoptosis is evaluated in terms of morphology, flow cytometry, and the release of cytochrome c to the cytosol. Diphenhydramine inhibits cell proliferation without inducing apoptosis in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. [2] Diphenhydramine (500 nM) significantly reduces the baseline firing of the periaqueductal gray neurons without a significant effect on the frequency of postsynaptic potentials. Diphenhydramine at high concentration inhibits periaqueductal gray neurons, but at low concentrations it has no effect on the baseline-firing rate and it blocks the response to neurotensin and tomedial preoptic nucleus stimulation.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
