An amine derived by enzymatic decarboxylation of HISTIDINE. It is a powerful stimulant of gastric secretion, a constrictor of bronchial smooth muscle, a vasodilator, and also a centrally acting neurotransmitter.
A class of histamine receptors discriminated by their pharmacology and mode of action. Most histamine H1 receptors operate through the inositol phosphate/diacylglycerol second messenger system. Among the many responses mediated by these receptors are smooth muscle contraction, increased vascular permeability, hormone release, and cerebral glyconeogenesis. (From Biochem Soc Trans 1992 Feb;20(1):122-5)
The secretion of histamine from mast cell and basophil granules by exocytosis. This can be initiated by a number of factors, all of which involve binding of IgE, cross-linked by antigen, to the mast cell or basophil's Fc receptors. Once released, histamine binds to a number of different target cell receptors and exerts a wide variety of effects.
A class of histamine receptors discriminated by their pharmacology and mode of action. Histamine H2 receptors act via G-proteins to stimulate ADENYLYL CYCLASES. Among the many responses mediated by these receptors are gastric acid secretion, smooth muscle relaxation, inotropic and chronotropic effects on heart muscle, and inhibition of lymphocyte function.

Major changes in the brain histamine system of the ground squirrel Citellus lateralis during hibernation. (1/3980)

Hibernation in mammals such as the rodent hibernator Citellus lateralis is a physiological state in which CNS activity is endogenously maintained at a very low, but functionally responsive, level. The neurotransmitter histamine is involved in the regulation of diurnal rhythms and body temperature in nonhibernators and, therefore, could likely play an important role in maintaining the hibernating state. In this study, we show that histamine neuronal systems undergo major changes during hibernation that are consistent with such a role. Immunohistochemical mapping of histaminergic fibers in the brains of hibernating and nonhibernating golden-mantled ground squirrels (C. lateralis) showed a clear increase in fiber density during the hibernating state. The tissue levels of histamine and its first metabolite tele-methylhistamine were also elevated throughout the brain of hibernating animals, suggesting an increase in histamine turnover during hibernation, which occurs without an increase in histidine decarboxylase mRNA expression. This hibernation-related apparent augmentation of histaminergic neurotransmission was particularly evident in the hypothalamus and hippocampus, areas of importance to the control of the hibernating state, in which tele-methylhistamine levels were increased more than threefold. These changes in the histamine neuronal system differ from those reported for the metabolic pattern in other monoaminergic systems during hibernation, which generally indicate a decrease in turnover. Our results suggest that the influence of histamine neuronal systems may be important in controlling CNS activity during hibernation.  (+info)

Comparison of functional antagonism between isoproterenol and M2 muscarinic receptors in guinea pig ileum and trachea. (2/3980)

The ability of the M2 muscarinic receptor to mediate an inhibition of the relaxant effects of forskolin and isoproterenol was investigated in guinea pig ileum and trachea. In some experiments, trachea was first treated with 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine (4-DAMP) mustard to inactivate M3 receptors. The contractile response to oxotremorine-M was measured subsequently in the presence of both histamine (10 microM) and isoproterenol (10 nM). Under these conditions, [[2-[(diethylamino)methyl]-1-piperidinyl]acetyl]-5, 11-dihydro-6H-pyrido[2,3b]-[1,4]benzodiazepine-6-one (AF-DX 116) antagonized the contractile response to oxotremorine-M in a manner consistent with an M3 mechanism. However, when the same experiment was repeated using forskolin (4 microM) instead of isoproterenol, the response to oxotremorine-M exhibited greater potency and was antagonized by AF-DX 116 in a manner consistent with an M2 mechanism. We also measured the effects of pertussis toxin treatment on the ability of isoproterenol to inhibit the contraction elicited by a single concentration of either histamine (0.3 microM) or oxotremorine-M (40 nM) in both the ileum and trachea. Pertussis toxin treatment had no significant effect on the potency of isoproterenol for inhibiting histamine-induced contractions in the ileum and trachea. In contrast, pertussis toxin treatment enhanced the relaxant potency of isoproterenol against oxotremorine-M-induced contractions in the ileum but not in the trachea. Also, pertussis toxin treatment enhanced the relaxant potency of forskolin against oxotremorine-M-induced contractions in the ileum and trachea. We investigated the relaxant potency of isoproterenol when very low, equi-effective (i.e., 20-34% of maximal response) concentrations of either histamine or oxotremorine-M were used to elicit contraction. Under these conditions, isoproterenol exhibited greater relaxant potency against histamine in the ileum but exhibited similar relaxant potencies against histamine and oxotremorine-M in the trachea. Following 4-DAMP mustard treatment, a low concentration of oxotremorine-M (10 nM) had no contractile effect in either the ileum or trachea. Nevertheless, in 4-DAMP mustard-treated tissue, oxotremorine-M (10 nM) reduced the relaxant potency of isoproterenol against histamine-induced contractions in the ileum, but not in the trachea. We conclude that in the trachea the M2 receptor mediates an inhibition of the relaxant effects of forskolin, but not isoproterenol, and the decreased relaxant potency of isoproterenol against contractions elicited by a muscarinic agonist relative to histamine is not due to activation of M2 receptors but rather to the greater contractile stimulus mediated by the M3 receptor compared with the H1 histamine receptor.  (+info)

Potent mast cell degranulation and vascular permeability triggered by urocortin through activation of corticotropin-releasing hormone receptors. (3/3980)

Urocortin (Ucn) is related to corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), and both are released in the brain under stress where they stimulate CRH 1 and 2 receptors (CRHR). Outside the brain, they may have proinflammatory actions through activation of mast cells, which are located perivascularly close to nerve endings and degranulate in response to acute psychological stress. Here, we report that a concentration of intradermal Ucn as low as 10 nM induced dose-dependent rat skin mast cell degranulation and increased vascular permeability. This effect appeared to be equipotent to that of calcitonin gene-related peptide and neurotensin. Ucn-induced skin vasodilation was inhibited by pretreatment with the mast cell stabilizer disodium cromoglycate (cromolyn) and was absent in the mast cell-deficient W/Wv mice. The selective nonpeptide CRH receptor 1 antagonist, antalarmin and the nonselective peptide antagonist astressin both reduced vascular permeability triggered by Ucn but not that by Substance P or histamine. In contrast, the peptide antagonist alpha-helical CRH-(9-41) reduced the effect of all three. The vasodilatory effect of Ucn was largely inhibited by pretreatment with H1 receptor antagonists, suggesting that histamine is the major mediator involved in vitro. Neuropeptide depletion of sensory neurons, treatment with the ganglionic blocker hexamethonium, or in situ skin infiltration with the local anesthetic lidocaine did not affect Ucn-induced vascular permeability, indicating that its in situ effect was not mediated through the peripheral nervous system. These results indicate that Ucn is one of the most potent triggers of rat mast cell degranulation and skin vascular permeability. This effect of Ucn may explain stress-induced disorders, such as atopic dermatitis or psoriasis, and may lead to new forms of treatment.  (+info)

Dynamic and quantitative Ca2+ measurements using improved cameleons. (4/3980)

Cameleons are genetically-encoded fluorescent indicators for Ca2+ based on green fluorescent protein variants and calmodulin (CaM). Because cameleons can be targeted genetically and imaged by one- or two-photon excitation microscopy, they offer great promise for monitoring Ca2+ in whole organisms, tissues, organelles, and submicroscopic environments in which measurements were previously impossible. However, the original cameleons suffered from significant pH interference, and their Ca2+-buffering and cross-reactivity with endogenous CaM signaling pathways was uncharacterized. We have now greatly reduced the pH-sensitivity of the cameleons by introducing mutations V68L and Q69K into the acceptor yellow green fluorescent protein. The resulting new cameleons permit Ca2+ measurements despite significant cytosolic acidification. When Ca2+ is elevated, the CaM and CaM-binding peptide fused together in a cameleon predominantly interact with each other rather than with free CaM and CaM-dependent enzymes. Therefore, if cameleons are overexpressed, the primary effect is likely to be the unavoidable increase in Ca2+ buffering rather than specific perturbation of CaM-dependent signaling.  (+info)

On the mechanism of histaminergic inhibition of glutamate release in the rat dentate gyrus. (5/3980)

1. Histaminergic depression of excitatory synaptic transmission in the rat dentate gyrus was investigated using extracellular and whole-cell patch-clamp recording techniques in vitro. 2. Application of histamine (10 microM, 5 min) depressed synaptic transmission in the dentate gyrus for 1 h. This depression was blocked by the selective antagonist of histamine H3 receptors, thioperamide (10 microM). 3. The magnitude of the depression caused by histamine was inversely related to the extracellular Ca2+ concentration. Application of the N-type calcium channel blocker omega-conotoxin (0. 5 or 1 microM) or the P/Q-type calcium channel blocker omega-agatoxin (800 nM) did not prevent depression of synaptic transmission by histamine. 4. The potassium channel blocker 4-aminopyridine (4-AP, 100 microM) enhanced synaptic transmission and reduced the depressant effect of histamine (10 microM). 4-AP reduced the effect of histamine more in 2 mM extracellular calcium than in 4 mM extracellular calcium. 5. Histamine (10 microM) did not affect the amplitude of miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSCs) and had only a small effect on their frequency. 6. Histaminergic depression was not blocked by an inhibitor of serine/threonine protein kinases, H7 (100 microM), or by an inhibitor of tyrosine kinases, Lavendustin A (10 microM). 7. Application of adenosine (20 microM) or the adenosine A1 agonist N6-cyclopentyladenosine (CPA, 0.3 microM) completely occluded the effect of histamine (10 microM). 8. We conclude that histamine, acting on histamine H3 receptors, inhibits glutamate release by inhibiting presynaptic calcium entry, via a direct G-protein-mediated inhibition of multiple calcium channels. Histamine H3 receptors and adenosine A1 receptors act upon a common final effector to cause presynaptic inhibition.  (+info)

Mediators of anaphylaxis but not activated neutrophils augment cholinergic responses of equine small airways. (6/3980)

Neutrophilic inflammation in small airways (SA) and bronchospasm mediated via muscarinic receptors are features of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in horses (COPD). Histamine, serotonin, and leukotrienes (LTs) are reported to be involved in the exacerbation of COPD, and currently, histamine has been shown to increase tension response to electrical field simulation (EFS) in equine SA. We tested the effects of these mediators and the effects of activated neutrophils on the cholinergic responses in SA. Histamine, serotonin, and LTD4 had a synergistic effect on EFS responses and only an additive effect on the tension response to exogenous ACh or methacholine. Atropine and TTX entirely eliminated the EFS-induced tension response in the presence of all three inflammatory mediators, indicating that augmentation of the EFS response applies only to the endogenous cholinergic response. Neutrophils isolated from control and COPD-affected horses were activated by zymosan, producing 18.1 +/- 2.3 and 25.0 +/- 2.3 nmol superoxide. 10(6) cells-1. 30 min-1, respectively. However, in contrast to the profound effect of mediators, incubation of SA for over 1 h in a suspension of up to 30 x 10(6) zymosan-treated neutrophils/ml did not significantly affect EFS responses of SA isolated from either control or COPD-affected horses. We conclude that in equine SA 1) the endogenous cholinergic responses are subject to strong facilitation by inflammatory mediators; 2) activated neutrophils do not affect cholinergic responses in SA; and 3) in acute bouts of equine COPD, histamine, LTD4, and serotonin (mediators primarily associated with type I allergic reaction) rather than mediators derived from neutrophils most likely contribute to increased cholinergic airway tone.  (+info)

Exhaled nitric oxide; relationship to clinicophysiological markers of asthma severity. (7/3980)

Bronchial asthma is an airway disorder associated with bronchial hyperresponsiveness, variable airflow obstruction and elevated levels of nitric oxide (NO) in exhaled air. The variables all reflect, in part, the underlying airway inflammation in this disease. To understand their interrelationships we have investigated the relationship between exhaled NO levels and clinicophysiological markers of asthma severity. Twenty-six steroid naive atopic asthmatics participated in the analysis. All were given diary cards and were asked to record their peak expiratory flow (PEF) rates twice daily together with their asthma symptom scores and beta-agonist use. Diary cards were collected 2 weeks later and measurements of exhaled NO levels, FEV1 and histamine bronchial hyperreactivity (PC20 histamine) were undertaken. Exhaled NO levels were significantly higher in our study population than in normal control subjects and correlated negatively with PC20 histamine (r = -0.51; P = 0.008) and positively with PEF diurnal variability (r = 0.58; P = 0.002), but not with symptom scores, beta-agonist use of FEV1 (%). We conclude that a significant relationship exists between exhaled NO levels and the two characteristic features and markers of asthma severity, namely bronchial hyperreactivity and PEF diurnal variability. The lack of correlation between symptom score and beta-agonist use, of FEV1 (%) predicted and exhaled NO suggests that these measures are reflective of differing aspects of asthma.  (+info)

Strain-dependent induction of allergic sensitization caused by peanut allergen DNA immunization in mice. (8/3980)

To investigate the potential application of allergen gene immunization in the modulation of food allergy, C3H/HeSn (C3H) mice received i.m. injections of pAra h2 plasmid DNA encoding one of the major peanut allergens, Ara h2. Three weeks following pDNA immunization, serum Ara h2-specific IgG2a, IgG1, but not IgE, were increased significantly in a dose-dependent manner. IgG1 was 30-fold higher in multiply compared with singly immunized mice. Ara h2 or peanut protein injection of immunized mice induced anaphylactic reactions, which were more severe in multiply immunized mice. Heat-inactivated immune serum induced passive cutaneous anaphylaxis, suggesting that anaphylaxis in C3H mice was mediated by IgG1. IgG1 responses were also induced by intradermal injection of pAra h2, and by i.m. injection of pOMC, the plasmid DNA encoding the major egg allergen protein, ovomucoid. To elucidate whether the pDNA immunization-induced anaphylaxis was a strain-dependent phenomenon, AKR/J and BALB/c mice also received multiple i.m. pAra h2 immunizations. Injection of peanut protein into these strains at weeks 3 or 5 following immunization did not induce reactions. Although IgG2a was increased significantly from week 2 in AKR/J mice and from week 4 in BALB/c mice and remained elevated for at least 6 wk, no IgG1 or IgE was detected. These results indicate that the type of immune responses to pDNA immunization in mice is strain dependent. Consequently, models for studying human allergen gene immunization require careful selection of suitable strains. In addition, this suggests that similar interindividual variation is likely in humans.  (+info)

PY - 2017/1/11. Y1 - 2017/1/11. N2 - At steady state, plasma histamine levels exhibit circadian variations with nocturnal peaks, which is implicated in the nighttime exacerbation of allergic symptoms. However, the regulatory mechanisms are largely unexplored. This study determined how steady-state plasma histamine levels are regulated and affected by environmental factors. We found that plasma histamine levels decreased in mast cell-deficient mice and their circadian variations were lost in mast cell-deficient mice reconstituted with bone marrow-derived mast cells (BMMCs) harboring a mutation in the circadian gene Clock. Clock temporally regulates expression of organic cation transporter 3 (OCT3), which is involved in histamine transport, in mast cells; OCT inhibition abolished circadian variations in ...

AU - Cross, Carroll E. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - The present study was designed to evaluate the distribution of bronchial blood flow to major airways and peripheral lung and to quantitate lung edema during a 2-h histamine infusion (2 μg·kg-1·min-1) in unanesthetized sheep. By the use of radioactive microspheres, the blood flow to trachea and to tracheal cartilage, smooth muscle, and mucosa/submucosa was determined along with measurements of blood flow to different sized airway segments and the systemic blood flow to lung parenchyma. Histamine greatly increased blood flow to medium-sized (5- to 10-mm-diam) central airways in which blood flow increased 5-10 times base line, whereas in small (1- to 5-mm-diam) central airways the increase was 10-15 times.

Histamine intolerance occurs when the body is unable to adequately process the level of histamine present in the body. When DAO levels are low or its activity is inhibited, signs of excess histamine can appear.. Histamine is a powerful compound that is essential to our health. Excess histamine, however, can cause discomfort and distress. Those who are histamine sensitive or histamine intolerant experience allergy-like symptoms in response to excess histamine consumed in foods, triggered by foods, or released in response to environmental factors. In rare cases, excess histamine is produced to excess by the bodys own mast cells (see Histamine and Mast Cells).. Common signs of histamine sensitivity or intolerance include flushing of the skin, rash, itching (esp. eyes, ears, nose), acute temporary rhinitis (sneezing, stuffy or runny nose), red/watery eyes, digestive disturbances and diarrhea. Less common signs include racing heart, chest pain, headache and dizziness.. ...

It was recently reported that caffeine may reduce the clinical symptoms of asthma and may prevent the clinical manifestations of this disease. The effect of caffeine on histamine responsiveness is unknown. The effect of caffeine (5 mg/kg) and placebo on histamine responsiveness (the provocation concentration causing a 20% fall in FEV1, PC20) was studied in 10 subjects with mild asthma (prechallenge FEV1 84% of predicted value). The PC20 for histamine bronchoprovocation after caffeine ingestion was 2.65 (95% confidence limits 0.99, 7.10) mg/ml. After placebo the PC20 was 1.89 (0.96, 3.71) mg/ml. It is concluded that caffeine in a dose equivalent to about three cups of coffee has a very small effect, if any, on histamine bronchoprovocation in those with mild asthma. Specific instructions about not having drinks containing caffeine before histamine challenge are therefore not necessary.. ...

Pharmacological studies in mammals and zebrafish suggest that histamine plays an important role in promoting arousal. However, genetic studies using rodents with disrupted histamine synthesis or signaling have revealed only subtle or no sleep/wake phenotypes. Studies of histamine function in mammalian arousal are complicated by its production in cells of the immune system and its roles in humoral and cellular immunity, which can have profound effects on sleep/wake states. To avoid this potential confound, we used genetics to explore the role of histamine in regulating sleep in zebrafish, a diurnal vertebrate in which histamine production is restricted to neurons in the brain. Similar to rodent genetic studies, we found that zebrafish that lack histamine due to mutation of histidine decarboxylase (hdc) exhibit largely normal sleep/wake behaviors. Zebrafish containing predicted null mutations in several histamine receptors also lack robust sleep/wake phenotypes, although we are unable to verify ...

Relative substrate specificity of the antibody was studied, and besides histamine, only putrescine, cadaverine and agmatine were ...
This book introduces a novel concept to reduce histamine in food that would benefit both food processors and food consumers. Histamine oxidizing bacteria and enzymes were utilized to degrade preformed histamine, as an emerging approach. This is the first time that an enzyme has been used to reduce histamine in food for human consumption. The histamine oxidizing enzyme was found to completely degrade histamine in tuna soup used to produce Rihaakuru, which is a nutritious and shelf-stable, cooked fish paste of the Maldives, consumed as a side dish. It is generally produced from poor quality fish therefore presence of biogenic amines is suspected. Rihaakuru was found to contain ten different biogenic amines, with histamine in excess of 500 ppm. This may cause histamine poisoning with symptoms such as skin rashes, vomiting and fever. Most of the histamine is likely to be produced by bacteria in raw fish. These bacteria are likely to die during the production of Rihaakuru, however, the histamine ...
Hello arek, You don?t tell why you have a high histamine. Histamine levels can become elevated for many reasons,and are usually temporary. Anything recommended for lowering your level must be run by your physician. Drug interactions can be problematic and even fatal in persons with an elevated histamine, so please check before attempting to treat yourself. Allergies, surgical procedures, parasitic infections (real parasitic infections such as those contracted from eating raw fish), certain fish and shellfish, fermented foods, wines, salamis, etc. can cause an elevated histamine. ?In humans, histamine ( -imidazole ethylamine) is the most important mediator and is mostly found in the initial phase of an anaphylactic reaction (immediate type allergy). Histamine is produced by the enzymatic decarboxylation of histidine. In the organism, histamine is present in nearly all tissues, and it is mainly ...
Published November 3 2014. Histamine is a chemical which plays a role in the inflammatory process, and also acts as a neurotransmitter. It is produced by certain white blood cells, specifically basophils and mast cells, although a few other cells can produce it as well, such as platelets and microglial cells. Some people have an intolerance to histamine, and as a result can experience symptoms such as itching, redness of the skin, hives, congestion or a runny nose, swelling, low blood pressure, arrhythmia, diarrhea, and other symptoms. In addition to talking about histamine intolerance in this article, Ill also discuss how thyroid conditions can affect the production of histamine, and Ill also talk about the relationship between histamine and autoimmunity.. Id first like to talk briefly about histamine metabolism. Histamine is synthesized from the amino acid histidine. It is dependent on vitamin B6, and so a deficiency in this vitamin can in turn affect the production of histamine. Histamine ...

Histamine is one type of biogenic amine that occurs in many foods. When we consume food that contains histamine, our gut uses its special enzymes to destroy the histamine before its absorbed into the bloodstream. The enzyme, Diamine Oxidase (DAO), is released into the gastrointestinal tract as the first line of defence against histamine exposure. Histamine intolerance occurs when there isnt enough of these enzymes in the body. The average human can cope with 50 to 100 mg/kg but people with a histamine intolerance react to much lower levels. The reactions can vary from anaphylaxis to mild localised allergic reactions. Around 80% of people with histamine intolerances are women. Estrogen and histamine can increase histamine levels and vice versa. Histamine sensitivity is difficult to diagnose because a food can cause symptoms one day and no symptoms another. Common symptoms include heachaches, migraines, nasal congestion, hives, fatigue, nausea and vomiting. Some drugs including opioids, muscle ...
We have known about histamine receptors in the heart for many years (1). The human H1- and H2-histamine receptors were cloned and characterized in the early 1990s (2,3), followed closely by the human H3- and H4-histamine receptors several years later (4,5). Histamine is a natural body constituent that is found throughout the body, especially the central nervous system, mast cells, gastric mucosa parietal cells, and basophils. The H1-receptor is coupled to Gα-q11 and activates a number of intracellular signals, including cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and cyclic guanosine monophosphate. In the heart, histamine decreases atrioventricular node conduction time via H1-receptors. The H2-histamine receptors are also found in the heart, and couple to Gαs proteins to signal through cAMP to produce chronotropic and inotropic activity. The H2-histamine receptors also subserve hypotension, flushing, headache, increased gastric acid production, and enhanced vascular permeability. Therefore, in ...
As you are navigating the world of histamine intolerance and mast cell activation disorder, you will come across the term histamine bucket or histamine cup often. What do these terms reference?. From Chris Kresser:. Histamine intolerance is unlike other food allergies or sensitivities in that the response is cumulative, not immediate. Imagine it like a cup of water. When the cup is very full (high amounts of histamine in the diet), even a drop of additional water will cause the cup to overflow (symptoms activated). But when the cup is less full, it would take more water (histamine) to cause a response. This makes histamine intolerance tricky to recognise.. Food, hormones, environment, weather, medications, and stress all serve to fill up the histamine bucket.. So how knowing this useful? If you know your histamine bucket is going to be overflowing, perhaps from a range of factors such as weather (allergy season), timing of your cycle, stress or exposure to other triggers (such as chemicals ...
Biogenic amines, more generally called histamines are chemicals made by our digestive and immune systems. They are also naturally found in many foods and fermented beverages. The histamines in our bodies provide important benefits such as fighting infections and regulating sleep. The histamines found in foods and beverages are surprisingly common. They are especially prevalent in food/drink that is aged or fermented, such as cured meats, aged cheeses or fermented beer, ale and wine. These consumable histamines can trigger allergy-like responses that are unmistakable to the sufferer. As is true with most food intolerances, some people are more sensitive to histamines than others and need to incorporate low histamine diets into their lifestyle.. In the case of wine, histamine precursors are found in the proteins that are in the skin of grapes. The histamines are formed when the juices produced from the grapes are fermented. As a rule of thumb, the thicker the skin and the darker the wine grape - ...
H2 receptors are positively coupled to adenylate cyclase via Gs. It is a potent stimulant of cAMP production, which leads to activation of protein kinase A. PKA functions to phosphorylate certain proteins, affecting their activity. The drug betazole is an example of a histamine H2 receptor agonist. Histamine is a ubiquitous messenger molecule released from mast cells, enterochromaffin-like cells, and neurons. Its various actions are mediated by histamine receptors H1, H2, H3 and H4. The histamine receptor H2 belongs to the rhodopsin-like family of G protein-coupled receptors. It is an integral membrane protein and stimulates gastric acid secretion. It also regulates gastrointestinal motility and intestinal secretion and is thought to be involved in regulating cell growth and differentiation. Histamine H2 receptors are expressed in the following tissues: Peripheral tissues Gastric parietal cells (oxyntic cells) Vascular smooth muscle Neutrophils Mast cells Heart Uterus Central nervous system ...
Histamine is a neurotransmitter involved in a number of physiological and neuronal functions. In mammals, such as humans and rodents, the histaminergic neurons found in the tuberomamillary nucleus (TMN) project widely throughout the central nervous system (CNS). Histamine acts as positive modulator of GABA(A) receptors (GABA(A)Rs) and, in high concentrations (10 mM), as negative modulator of the strychnine-sensitive glycine receptor. However, the exact molecular mechanisms by which histamine acts on GABA(A)Rs are unknown. In our study, we aimed to identify amino acids potentially involved in the modulatory effect of histamine on GABA(A)Rs. We expressed GABA(A)Rs with 12 different point mutations in Xenopus laevis oocytes and characterized the effect of histamine on GABA-induced currents using the two-electrode voltage clamp technique. Our data demonstrate that the amino acid residues ß2(N265) and ß2(M286), which are important for modulation by propofol, are not involved in the action of
1. The effect of intra-arterial histamine on fingertip blood flow (FBF) and vascular resistance (FVR) was studied in normal subjects during reflex sympathetic vascoconstriction induced by body cooling and vasoconstriction caused by intra-arterial noradrenaline.. 2. In a room at 20°C, FBF increased from 15.3 ± 35.5 (sd) to 28.3 ± 55.9 ml min−1 100 ml−1 of tissue and FVR decreased from 23.7 ± 17.7 to 11.9 ± 9.9 mmHg·min−1 100 ml−1 (P , 0.01) during infusions of histamine (0.5-4 μg/min) in 14 subjects. In nine of these subjects, the disappearance half times of local injections of Na131I were measured and decreased from 19.8 ± 10.9 to 12.9 ± 7.3 min during histamine infusions, indicating an increase in nutritional flow. Arteriovenous shunt flow was also probably affected, for increases in FBF were sometimes large and FBF increased without a change in the radioisotope half time in two subjects.. 3. Neither cimetidine nor pyrilamine (mepyramine) consistently prevented the FBF ...

N2 - Interleukin-10 is a potent suppressive factor that down-regulates cellular immune response via inhibition of the production of TH1 cytokines. Histamine shifts the TH1/TH2 balance from TH1 to TH2 cytokines making the effects of histamine on IL-10 secretion an important factor in this switch. This study was designed to assess the role of histamine in the regulation of IL-10 production and the involvement of PKA and STAT factors in this process. TH2 cells (D10.G4.1) and AKR/j splenocytes were pretreated with histamine at a concentration range of 10-8-10-5 M for 1 h and then activated with PMA + ionomycin or anti-CD3 for 24 h. The supernatants were collected and tested for IL-10 content by ELISA. Histamine stimulated IL-10 production in TH2 cells in a dose-dependent manner that was reversed by both ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of histamine on dentate granule cells in vitro. AU - Greene, R. W.. AU - Haas, H. L.. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - Hippocampal slices from rat brain were exposed to histamine and related substances in a perfusion chamber. Granule cells of the dentate gyrus were studied with conventional extra- and intracellular recording and a single electrode voltage clamp. Histamine caused, through activation of H2-receptors, a small depolarization, an increase in the number of synaptic and action potentials, a block of the long lasting (but not the early) component of spike afterhyperpolarizations and a reduction of the accommodation of action potential firing. These effects were mimicked by forskolin (suggests activation of adenylate cyclase). In voltage clamp, histamine blocked a long lasting calcium-dependent outward tail current without any reduction of inward current. Thus histamine selectively blocks the late calcium-dependent potassium current in dentate granule cells which ...
The present study examined the effect of histamine H2-receptor antagonists and exogenous histamine on growth of malignant melanoma implant in mice. Drugs were administered to B16BL6 malignant-melanoma-implanted syngeneic mice, and the tumor volume was measured throughout the experiments. Cell proliferation was assessed by MTT assay and mRNA expression was determined by RT-PCR. Both roxatidine and cimetidine significantly suppressed growth of B16BL6 implant compared with vehicle. On the other hand, systemically administered histamine significantly stimulated growth of B16BL6 implants. In addition, the histamine-stimulated B16BL6 implant growth was markedly suppressed by co-administration of cimetidine in a dose-dependent manner. H2-receptor antagonists, however, failed to affect in vitro proliferation of B16BL6 cells. H2-receptor mRNA was detected in B16BL6 implants but not in the cell line. These results indicated that both endogenous and exogenous histamine have ability to stimulate growth of malignant
Histamines cause swollen ankles - What may cause swollen ankles? A few things. Excess dietary sodium can cause fluid retention, which can explain swelling in the foot, ankles and legs. Prolonged sitting or standing in place may cause swelling. It can also be due to other medical issues as well: congestive heart disease, htn, diabetes, uremia and many other issues. Discuss this with your doctor.

The phosphorylation of STAT factors and their translocation to nucleus are important steps in the regulation of TH1/TH2 cytokine balance. This study was designed to investigate the effects of histamine on Janus kinases-signal transducers and activators of transcription (JAK-STAT) pathway. The splenocytes were treated with histamine in the presence or absence of JAK-STAT inhibitor, tyrphostin, activated with IFNγ for 30 min, and phosphorylated STAT1 was detected by immunoblotting. We found that histamine up-regulated the phosphorylation of STAT1 and tyrphostin prevented this phosphorylation. We then studied the effects of tyrphostin on histamine-mediated inhibition of IFNγ ...

Histamine receptors provide feedback inhibition for the synthesis and release of histamine from the hypothalamus, as well as inhibition of other neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine from intestinal cholinergic nerves, and norepinephrines from the retina and cerebral cortex. Our previous results suggest that the regulation of histamine release by histamine H3 receptors changes with the progression of hypertension in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats (SHR). Therefore, we believe that the histamine H3 receptor plays a role in the promotion and sustained development of hypertension. Analysis of saturation binding data from Spontaneously Hypertensive Rat cerebral cortex indicate that as animals aged from six to sixteen weeks the maximal number of receptor sites (Bmax) increased whereas the affinity of [3H]-N-a-methylhistamine for these sites decreased. B max was 38 + 1.58, 59.63 + 2.48, 79.17 + 5.02, and 84.41 + 3.72 fmol/mg of protein at six, nine, twelve, and sixteen weeks, respectively. High performance
Follow a lower histamine diet. This is job one: stop filling up the bucket.

In allergic reactions an allergen interacts with and cross-links surface IgE antibodies on mast cells and basophils. Once the mast cell-antibody-antigen complex is formed, a complex series of events occurs that eventually leads to cell-degranulation and the release of histamine (and other chemical mediators) from the mast cell or basophil. Once released, histamine can react with local or widespread tissues through histamine receptors. Histamine, acting on H1-receptors, produces pruritis, vasodilatation, hypotension, flushing, headache, tachycardia, and bronchoconstriction. Histamine also increases vascular permeability and potentiates pain. Chlorpheniramine, is a histamine H1 antagonist (or more correctly, an inverse histamine agonist) of the alkylamine class. It competes with histamine for the normal H1-receptor sites on effector cells of the gastrointestinal tract, blood vessels and respiratory tract. It provides effective, temporary relief of sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, and runny nose ...

Histamine causes massive inflammation in the body. Rather than just blocking the receptors with antihistamines, we need to give the body ammunition to help it deal with it. Why do you use X food? Dont you know its high in histamine?:: I get a lot of emails asking why my books include this or that food - after all, dont I realise its high histamine? Were usually speaking of chickpeas, bananas, sunflower seeds or blueberries, rather than burgers, spaghetti, whatever. Thats because in my cookbooks you will never, ever, find junk food or any medium/high histamine food thats nutritionally null. Interestingly I am often asked this question by people who still feel its OK for them to indulge in pizza (no tomato though!), or the infrequent Taco Bell; those who still drink coffee or black tea (with just one spoon of sugar!), or who restrain themselves to only licking off the frosting when baking cupcakes for the family. Present them with the idea of eating a banana though, and they run a ...
1. In bovine coronary arteries, cholinesterase staining showed an extensive cholinergic innervation at the adventitia-media junction, and some cholinesterase in the outer but not inner smooth muscle.2. Acetylcholine or methacholine caused large, atropine-sensitive contractions of outer muscle but caused little contraction of inner muscle.3. Fluorescence microscopy for monoamines and for histamine, supported by chemical assays, showed no adrenergic innervation but showed numerous fluorescent cells in the adventitia and the outer 50% of the media which stained as mast cells and contained large amounts of histamine and noradrenaline and some dopamine, but little 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT).4. 5-hydroxytryptamine (acting by D receptors) and histamine (acting by H(1) receptors) in high concentrations caused large contractions, of similar size, in inner and outer muscle. In given submaximal concentrations they generally caused more contraction of outer than inner muscle, particularly in the case of histamine,
1. The specificity of intracellular Ca2+ stores to Ca2+-mobilizing agonists was studied in DDT1 MF-2 vas deferens cells of the Syrian hamster.. 2. Application of histamine (100-mu-M or ATP (100-mu-m) to the DDT, MF-2 cells caused an initial increase of intracellular Ca2+ followed by a lower phase as measured by using Indo-1 as fluorescent probe at 22-degrees-C. The basal Ca2+ level (146 nM) was enhanced to 309 nm by histamine and to 379 nM by ATP.. 3. A transient rise in intracellular Ca2+ lasting for about 2 min was measured in the presence of histamine or ATP in the absence of extracellular Ca2+. The basal Ca2+ level (78 nm) was increased to 128 nm by histamine and to 145 nm by ATP.. 4. A transient hyperpolarization was elicited in single cells as measured with microelectrodes by both agonists under Ca2+-free conditions with a similar time course as the change in internal Ca2+ . The hyperpolarization observed in the presence of histamine amounted to 23 mV and 31 mV with ATP. The ...
If youve ever dealt with seasonal allergies, or you happen to have a serious food allergy, then youve likely heard the term histamine in one context or another. While histamine is directly related to allergic reactions, its technically a chemical in your immune system which cause an immediate inflammatory response after coming in contact with any food or drink item that your body deems a potential health threat.. It works a bit like this: imagine a peanut allergy. When you eat a peanut, histamine automatically inflames your blood vessels. This lets your body know it needs to send as many white blood cells - the kinds that attack infection - to the affected areas as possible. However, too much histamine sent at once can obviously cause a severe allergic reaction that, if not treated quickly, can cause anaphylaxis.. However, its also possible to have too much histamine present in your immune system - even if youre not allergic to any food or dont have seasonal allergies. Its also possible ...

... is a sulfinic acid that is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of taurine. Like taurine, it also acts as an endogenous neurotransmitter via action on the glycine receptors.[1] Hypotaurine is derived from cysteine (and homocysteine). In mammals, the biosynthesis of hypotaurine from cysteine occurs in the pancreas. In the cysteine sulfinic acid pathway, cysteine is first oxidized to its sulfinic acid, catalyzed by the enzyme cysteine dioxygenase. Cysteine sulfinic acid, in turn, is decarboxylated by sulfinoalanine decarboxylase to form hypotaurine. Hypotaurine is enzymatically oxidized to yield taurine by hypotaurine dehydrogenase.[2] ...

Besides the nervous system, GABA is also produced at relatively high levels in the insulin-producing β-cells of the pancreas. The β-cells secrete GABA along with insulin and the GABA binds to GABA receptors on the neighboring islet α-cells and inhibits them from secreting glucagon (which would counteract insulin's effects).[25] GABA can promote the replication and survival of β-cells[26][27][28] and also promote the conversion of α-cells to β-cells, which may lead to new treatments for diabetes.[29] GABA has also been detected in other peripheral tissues including intestines, stomach, Fallopian tubes, uterus, ovaries, testes, kidneys, urinary bladder, the lungs and liver, albeit at much lower levels than in neurons or β-cells. GABAergic mechanisms have been demonstrated in various peripheral tissues and organs, which include the intestines, the stomach, the pancreas, the Fallopian tubes, the uterus, the ovaries, the testes, the kidneys, the urinary bladder, the lungs, and the liver.[30] ...
... (symbol Gly or G;[5] /ˈɡlaɪsiːn/)[6] is an amino acid that has a single hydrogen atom as its side chain. It is the simplest amino acid (since carbamic acid is unstable), with the chemical formula NH2‐CH2‐COOH. Glycine is one of the proteinogenic amino acids. It is encoded by all the codons starting with GG (GGU, GGC, GGA, GGG). Glycine is integral to the formation of alpha-helices in secondary protein structure due to its compact form. For the same reason, it is the most abundant amino acid in collagen triple-helices. Glycine is also an inhibitory neurotransmitter - interference with its release within the spinal cord (such as during a Clostridium tetani infection) can cause spastic paralysis due to uninhibited muscle contraction. Glycine is a colorless, sweet-tasting crystalline solid. It is the only achiral proteinogenic amino acid. It can fit into hydrophilic or hydrophobic environments, due to its minimal side chain of only one hydrogen atom. The acyl radical is glycyl. ...

In diabetic rats, taurine supplementation slightly reduced abdominal body fat while improving glucose tolerance.[48] Taurine is effective in removing fatty liver deposits in rats, preventing liver disease, and reducing cirrhosis in tested animals.[49][50] Evidence indicates taurine may be beneficial for blood pressure in male rats. A single intravenous taurine supplementation resulted in measurable decreases in blood pressure. However, when rats were supplemented with taurine in their drinking water, only female rats showed an increase in blood pressure. Both genders showed significant tachycardia.[51] Likewise, taurine administration to diabetic rabbits resulted in 30% decrease in serum glucose levels.[52] Cats lack the enzymatic machinery (sulfinoalanine decarboxylase) to produce taurine and must therefore acquire it from their diet.[53] A taurine deficiency in cats can lead to retinal degeneration and eventually blindness. Other effects of a diet lacking in this essential amino acid are ...

  • Histamine acts as positive modulator of GABA A receptors (GABA A Rs) and, in high concentrations (10 mM), as negative modulator of the strychnine-sensitive glycine receptor. (
  • Thanks to their role in allergic reactions, medications that reduce histamine levels - antihistamines - are commonplace. (
  • Antihistamines block cells from seeing histamine and can treat common allergies. (
  • In our experiments we were able to induce PCD and arm resorption with antihistamines further indicating that histamine is playing a central function in the complex regulatory signalling network underlying competence and metamorphosis. (
  • Antihistamines usually relieve the symptoms and support histamine as the causative agent. (
  • Histamine is known for contributing to allergic reactions and keeping us awake at night, which is why antihistamines are available over the counter. (
  • When the infected mice without mast cells were given antihistamines, the level of histamine, and therefore the severity of the pneumonia, dropped in proportion to the amount of antihistamine given. (
  • Chapter 4 by Thomas Taylor-Clark outlines the role of histamine in allergic rhinitis, an area were antihistamines are commonly used. (

(
  • Histamine intolerance occurs when there is a buildup of histamine in the body. (
  • Histamine intolerance is fairly rare, impacting an estimated 1 percent of the population. (
  • Some people are predisposed to developing histamine intolerance because of hypersensitivity to OTC medications, for example, NSAIDs. (
  • People with histamine intolerance tend to have a variety of symptoms that can make it difficult to determine the source . (
  • The symptoms of histamine intolerance vary but tend to mimic those of other allergic reactions. (
  • Histamine intolerance, sometimes called histaminosis, is an over-accumulation of dietary histamine in the human body. (
  • however, the intolerance is technically caused by the gradual accumulation of extracellular histamine due to an imbalance. (
  • The imbalance in histamine intolerance is between the synthesis and selective release of histamine from certain granulocytes (i.e., mast cells and basophils), versus the breakdown of histamine by the enzymes which metabolize it, such as diamine oxidase (DAO) and histamine N-methyltransferase (HNMT). (
  • In histamine intolerance, the activity of DAO is limited, and histamine taken up by the diet and formed in the body is only partially metabolized. (
  • Incompatibility of anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications in persons with histamine intolerance: Anti-inflammatory / analgesic drugs that increase allergen-specific histamine release in allergy sufferers are reaction inducing: List from page 125 in:[8] Anti-inflammatory/analgesic drugs that inhibit the allergen-specific histamine release in people with allergies are not reaction inducing. (
  • The reason why, in most cases, nothing happens when administering contrast media is that most patients have no histamine intolerance. (
  • For safety reasons, an antihistamine should always be given to people with histamine intolerance prior to examination with an X-ray contrast medium. (
  • But it's a doozy: histamine intolerance and what to do about it. (
  • In today's post, I offer Laura my take on what to do about histamine intolerance based on my reading of the available literature. (
  • I hope you can one day shed some light on histamine intolerance. (
  • Some histamine intolerance stems from a simple deficiency in diamine oxidase, the enzyme that breaks down histamine in the body. (
  • Histamine intolerance looks a lot like an allergic response. (
  • What Is Histamine Intolerance? (
  • When these enzymes aren't working like they should-or if we are genetically wired to have underactive enzymes-we begin to show signs of histamine intolerance. (
  • Those with histamine intolerance are unable to tolerate high-histamine foods. (
  • People with histamine intolerance should also avoid foods that are rich in long-chain fats. (
  • Scientists speculate that accumulating histamine is only a problem for those who do not make enough DAO-leading to an imbalance in histamine or histamine intolerance. (
  • Histamine intolerance develops when your blood levels of histamine, one of the main chemicals involved in allergic reactions, get too high. (
  • If you have a histamine intolerance, you can get your symptoms under control by following a short-term low-histamine diet while you work to fix the root cause of the problem. (
  • To understand histamine intolerance, it's helpful to have a background on histamine first. (
  • A histamine intolerance develops when the amount of histamine that accumulates in your body is greater than the amount of histamine your body can eliminate. (
  • But while there are several possible underlying root causes, the most common cause of histamine intolerance is a problem with the way an enzyme called diamine oxidase, or DAO, works in your body. (
  • Over time, this can lead to high levels of histamine that cause the uncomfortable symptoms associated with histamine intolerance. (
  • Symptoms of histamine intolerance. (
  • Because histamine is one of the main chemicals involved in allergic reactions, the symptoms of histamine intolerance closely mimic an allergy (even though it isn't a true allergy). (
  • It's currently estimated that about 1% of the population suffers from histamine intolerance, although some researchers believe that number is highly underestimated . (
  • That's because many physicians overlook histamine intolerance, and it can be difficult to diagnose. (
  • How to find out if you have histamine intolerance. (
  • Some researchers have recommended standard allergy testing or skin prick tests to diagnose histamine intolerance, but since it's not a true allergy and histamine can take a while to accumulate in the body, these tests are not the ideal choice . (
  • There's no direct testing for histamine intolerance, but your doctor can use a combination of tests to determine the likelihood that you have it. (
  • Please be careful: Sesame seed might be a problem with some people suffering from histamine intolerance. (
  • However, histamine intolerance is a pretty individual thing, so if you're suffering from this condition, please judge for yourself before you try this out. (
  • Histamine intolerance is not a food allergy, it is a food intolerance. (
  • Find more information about histamine intolerance here . (
  • If the level of histamine they create on the food is high, it can lead to excessive levels of histamine within the body in susceptible people when the food is eaten and often referred to as histamine intolerance. (
  • Vacinations contributed to my histamine intolerance/MCS. (
  • Histamine - a chemical found in some of the body's cells - causes many of the symptoms of allergies, such as a runny nose or sneezing. (
  • You've probably heard of antihistamine medications - these help to fight symptoms caused by the release of histamine during an allergic reaction. (
  • Histamine is responsible for many of the symptoms in persons with allergies . (
  • With anaphylaxis, histamine concentrations in the blood increase rapidly, rising within 10 minutes of the start of symptoms and returning to normal within about 30 to 60 minutes. (
  • I found out that though the low histamine helped with a lot of my symptoms I was still having migraines and reacting to just about everything I ate. (
  • A person's allergic response symptoms are likely to be more severe the more histamine they have accumulated in their bloodstream. (
  • John Schandelmeier, Anchorage Daily News , 16 May 2020 The production of histamine can cause runny nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, and other symptoms. (
  • ?Symptoms of increased histamine release include impurities (characteristically produced by bathing or showering), heartburn, acid eructation, peptic ulcer, small bowel hypermotility, flushing and angioneurotic edema. (
  • Great progress is being made in understanding allergy triggers and managing allergic symptoms, and figuring out why histamine, our frenemy, acts the way it does. (
  • A second agent in fish tissues has been theorized to play a role in histamine toxicity because attempts to recreate the symptoms by orally feeding people histamine have failed. (
  • [ 10 ] Subsequent cooking, smoking, or canning of the fish does not eliminate the histamine, so both raw and cooked fish may cause symptoms. (
  • Administer an H 1 blocker and an H 2 blocker, because studies have shown the combination to be superior to an H 1 blocker alone in relieving the histamine-mediated symptoms. (
  • If these histamine-producing strains are overrepresented in your gut, you may suffer negative symptoms from any extra histamine. (
  • And because many of our favorite Primal foods are high in histamine or, as you mention, induce the mast cells to release it, when you can't break down histamine effectively, even eating cherished Primal fare can produce negative symptoms. (
  • When too little histamine is present, it can induce hallucinations, paranoia, and other symptoms because the brain is not processing stimuli properly. (
  • Physical symptoms of low histamine include excess facial and body hair and high blood pressure. (
  • Since anti-histamines stop histamines from acting, taking too many could probably result in low histamine level symptoms. (
  • Indian Oyster mushroom may be effective in the relief of symptoms of allergic rhinitis through inhibition of histamine release. (
  • Histamine causes several allergic symptoms, including airway constriction in the lungs, severe itching, hives and swelling, and is a major cause of asthma. (
  • Scombrotoxic (histamine) poisoning is a chemical intoxication, in which symptoms typically develop rapidly (from 10 minutes to two hours) after eating food containing toxic histamine levels. (
  • Allergy symptoms are mostly caused by the release of histamine in response to allergens. (
  • The changes in symptoms and lung function tests of 26 cotton cardroom workers were investigated before and after inhalation of histamine aerosols. (
  • Alcohol, heroin and other narcotics block histamine, providing some temporary relief from the high histamine symptoms, thus why many high histamine people become addicted to drugs and alcohol. (
  • And, for all participants, whether high or low scorers, images that were easiest to recall in the pre-medication trials became harder to recollect after boosting histamine levels. (
  • A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of diamine oxidase, or DAO, the primary enzyme that breaks down ingested histamine. (
  • Once formed, histamine is either stored or rapidly inactivated by its primary degradative enzymes, histamine-N-methyltransferase or diamine oxidase. (
  • Histamine is released by mast cells as an immune response and is later degraded primarily by two enzymes: diamine oxidase (DAO), coded by AOC1 genes, and histamine-N-methyltransferase (HNMT), coded by the HNMT gene. (
  • This putative second causative agent, possibly saurine (histamine hydrochloride), may enhance the activity of histamine, facilitate its absorption, or prevent its inactivation by histamine N- methyltransferase or diamine oxidase. (
  • Without adequate diamine oxidase, histamine builds up and causes problems where it shouldn't. (
  • They are DAO ( diamine oxidase ) and HNMT ( histamine-N-methyl-transferase ). (
  • Its Diamine Oxidase and is an enzyme that helps the body process histamine. (
  • In mammals, histamine is metabolized by two major pathways: N(tau)-methylation via histamine N-methyltransferase and oxidative deamination via diamine oxidase. (
  • In the mammalian brain, the neurotransmitter activity of histamine is controlled by N(tau)-methylation as diamine oxidase is not found in the central nervous system. (
  • Perhaps most famous for its role in the immune system, histamine also helps regulate gut function and acts as a neurotransmitter. (
  • Histamine is an organic nitrogenous compound involved in local immune responses, as well as regulating physiological function in the gut and acting as a neurotransmitter for the brain, spinal cord, and uterus. (
  • Histamine is a monoamine neurotransmitter. (
  • Non-mast cell histamine is found in several tissues, including the hypothalamus region of the brain, where it functions as a neurotransmitter. (
  • Histamine has generally excitatory effects on target neurons, but paradoxically, histamine neurons may also release the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. (
  • However it is easy to forget that histamine is also a neurotransmitter involved in controlling memories, regulating sleep, and controlling secretion of gastric acid. (
  • Histamine also promotes gastric acid secretion and acts as a neurotransmitter that can increase and inhibit the release of other neurotransmitters. (
  • Histamine is a neurotransmitter produced by neurons of the posterior hypothalamus. (
  • Histamine is an organic molecule produced in the body that is involved with immune response, gastric acid production, vasodilation, cardiac stimulation, and most smooth muscle contraction (ileum, bronchi, and uterus) or acting as a neurotransmitter in the brain. (
  • Most histamine is generated, stored and released by mast cells or basophils as part of an immune response against foreign invaders, but non-mast cell histamine is found in the brain where it functions as a stimulatory neurotransmitter. (
  • Histamine is an organic nitrogenous compoond involved in local immune responses as well as regulatin pheesiological function in the gut an actin as a neurotransmitter . (
  • Histamine is a neurotransmitter involved in a number of physiological and neuronal functions. (
  • Histamine is a neurotransmitter in the brain and a cytokine in the periphery. (
  • Histamine degradation is crucial to the prevention of allergic reactions to otherwise harmless substances. (
  • In contrast, allergic reactions involving an immediate allergic response to an allergen are caused by anaphylactic degranulation, which is the abrupt and explosive release of "pre-formed mediators", including histamine, from mast cells and basophils throughout the body. (
  • The fish contain abnormally high levels of histamine (more commonly known for its role in allergic reactions and wasp stings. (
  • In a surprise finding, scientists have discovered that histamine, the inflammatory compound released during allergic reactions that causes runny nose, watery eyes, and wheezing, can be produced in large amounts in the lung by neutrophils, the white blood cells that are the major component of pus. (
  • Histamine plays a major role in the mediation of allergic reactions such as peripheral inflammation. (
  • A non-infectious form of foodborne disease, scombroid poisoning, is due to histamine production by bacteria in spoiled food, particularly fish. (
  • Previous terms for histamine fish poisoning were scombroid fish poisoning, pseudoallergic fish poisoning, histamine overdose, or mahi-mahi flush. (
  • Alert® for Histamine is a competitive direct ELISA intended for the screening of histamine in scombroid species of fish, such as tuna, bluefish and mahi-mahi, and in fishmeal. (
  • The histamine can cause scombroid , or scombrotoxic, food poisoning. (
  • Human scombroid poisoning is caused from consuming fish with high levels of histamine. (
  • Histamine or scombrotoxin is a foodborne toxin that is associated with the consumption of fish, particularly species belonging to the Scombridae and Scomberesocidae families (scombroid fish), such as mackerel and tunas. (
  • Histamine or scombrotoxin formation is a result of time and temperature abuse of certain species of scombroid fish. (
  • In addition to being an indicator of decomposition, when ingested at sufficiently high levels histamine causes scombroid poisoning. (
  • The term, 'scombroid fish poisoning,' developed because fish of the families Scombridae and Scomberesocidae are implicated in instances of histamine poisoning derived from decomposition in these fish. (
  • When we looked in detail at the effects of histamine we found that histamine seemed to inhibit programmed cell death (PCD), an essential process of the metamorphic transition. (
  • Consequently, the effects of histamine depend on the type of receptor involved. (
  • I have a high histamine level, is there any medicines to normalize or block histamine. (
  • Hello arek, You don?t tell why you have a high histamine. (
  • Eating high-histamine foods or having an allergic response can cause histamine levels to skyrocket. (
  • In the brain, histamine is predominantly present in the gray matter. (
  • Problems with abnormally high levels of brain histamine (known as histadelia), were first presented to us by Dr. Carl Pfeiffer in his book Nutrition and Mental Illness many years ago. (
  • Low levels of brain histamine, also made known to us by Dr. Pfeiffer and referred to as histapenia, may result in paranoia, ear ringing, visual or auditory hallucinations, fatigue, low libido, sensitivity to medications, irritability, and grandiose plans without the energy to see them through.

  • In the brain histamine is released from the tuberomammillary nucleus which is involved in the wake-sleep regulation. (
  • ?In humans, histamine ( -imidazole ethylamine) is the most important mediator and is mostly found in the initial phase of an anaphylactic reaction ('immediate type' allergy). (
  • NIH and specifically the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) support research of histamine and its related conditions. (
  • It is clear that allergy has its roots in the primary parasite rejection response in which mast cell-derived histamine creates an immediate hostile environment and eosinophils are recruited for killing. (
  • Histamine participates in innate and acquired immune response, mediating allergy and inflammation. (
  • Histamine is a key participant in most allergic diseases including asthma, hay fever, and food allergy. (
  • Avoiding contact with known allergy triggers such as pollen, dust, mold spores and animal dander is an important first step in the treatment of having too much histamine, Mayo Clinic states. (
  • Inhibiting the proton currents in basophils, a rare type of white blood cell, can stop the release of histamine and could provide a new target for allergy and asthma drugs according to a new study by researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and the Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center in Baltimore. (
  • Histamine is what drives the most common signs of an allergy. (
  • If you think that you are histamine intolerant, rule out an allergy with a skin prick test. (
  • Previously it was thought that the primary sources of lung histamine, in health as well as disease, was mast cells, which are classically associated with allergy," notes Caughey, who is also a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. (
  • Caughey says the result could mean that histamine acts as a link between airway infections and asthma and bronchitis, which are associated with allergy. (
  • If you think histamines are your nemesis during allergy season, here's something that might change your perspective. (
  • Many allergy drugs are anti-histamines, in that they bind to the histamine receptor but do not cause the conformational change that leads to a response. (
  • A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of histamine-N-methyltransferase, or HNMT, an enzyme that helps break down histamine within cells. (
  • Usually, the enzyme DAO, and to a lesser extent HNMT, breaks down ingested histamine, preventing it from being absorbed in the gut and entering the bloodstream. (
  • We produce another histamine-degrading enzyme called HNMT, or histamine N-methyltransferase. (
  • HNMT deficiency is largely genetic, as various HNMT polymorphisms determine endogenous histamine levels. (
  • histamine hĭs´təmēn˝ [ key ] , organic compound derived in the body from the amino acid histidine by the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH). (
  • Histamine is classified as an amine because it is based on the structure of ammonia and is formed through decarboxylation of the amino acid histidine. (
  • You could help decrease histamine levels by eating foods that contain methionine, an essential amino acid. (
  • Histamine is derived from the decarboxylation of the amino acid histidine, a reaction catalyzed by the enzyme L-histidine decarboxylase. (
  • Toxin production occurs when inadequate refrigeration after the catch allows the multiplication of bacteria that contain histidine decarboxylase, which converts amino acid histidine in the fish tissues to histamine. (
  • Protein contains an amino acid that converts histidine into histamine. (
  • Histamine is produced in certain types of fish when microbes break down the amino acid histidine. (
  • Histamine or scombrotoxin in fish is produced by the decarboxylation of the amino acid histidine and fish species that have high levels of free histidine in their tissues are most likely to develop toxic histamine levels. (
  • Histamine is a chemical which is made from an amino acid (histidine). (
  • Some types of bacteria have the ability to convert the amino acid histidine into histamine as well, so when they are present on certain foods, they may generate histamine. (
  • Histamine forms postmortem by bacterial action on the amino acid, L-histidine. (
  • Our data demonstrate that the amino acid residues β2(N265) and β2(M286), which are important for modulation by propofol, are not involved in the action of histamine. (
  • However, we found that histamine modulation is dependent on the amino acid residues α1(R120), β2(Y157), β2(D163), β3(V175), and β3(Q185). (
  • We showed that the amino acid residues β2(Y157) and β3(Q185) mediate the positive modulatory effect of histamine on GABA-induced currents, whereas α1(R120) and β2(D163) form a potential histamine interaction site in GABA A Rs. (

  • Plays an important role in degrading histamine and in regulating the airway response to histamine. (
  • We hypothesized that an infection in the airway would release histamine from mast cells, and that would be one of the reasons," he explains. (
  • We thought the mice without mast cells would do better than the wild-type mice, because the infection wouldn't be provoking mast cells to release histamine," recalls Caughey. (
