Involvement of the organic cation transporters in histamine uptake into human vascular endothelial cells

Abstract

Increased plasma histamine levels lead to pathological events. Endothelial cells actively participate in histamine clearance by promoting its rapid uptake [1, 2, 3] via yet unidentified carrier(s), thus limiting the spread of the histamine signal. Since histamine is a substrate for organic cationic transporters (OCT2 andOCT3) [4], andOCT3 is expressed in… (More)
