Histamine improves antigen uptake and cross-presentation by dendritic cells.

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that histamine is able to modulate the function of dendritic cells (DCs). Histamine seems to be required for the normal differentiation of DCs. Moreover, it is capable of stimulating the chemotaxis of immature DCs and of promoting the differentiation of T CD4+ cells into a Th2 profile. In this study, we analyzed whether histamine… (More)
