Evidence for bidirectional histamine transport by murine hematopoietic progenitor cells.

Murine hematopoietic progenitor cells synthesize substantial amounts of histamine in response to IL-3 or calcium ionophore. They also take up extracellular histamine by an active transport system. In the present study we demonstrate that this system mediates both influx and efflux of histamine. Indeed, MR16155 and thioperamide, the two H3 antagonists which… CONTINUE READING
