Histamine content, histidine decarboxylase activity and histamine methyl transferase activity of the human gastric mucosa have been studied in healthy subjects. Histamine content was evenly distributed over the gastric mucosa and no significant difference could be observed between the oxyntic and pyloric gland area. A 'specific' histidine decarboxylase was… CONTINUE READING
