Regional levels of histamine in rat brain after microwave irradiation: Evidence for artifacts in the enzymatic-isotopic assay


Histamine levels in the brain, measured fluorimetrically, were similar for rats killed by decapitation and microwave irradiation. However, enzymatic-isotopic assay yields 5–20 times higher value for microwave irradiation versus decapitation. Thin layer chromatography of the methylated products in the enzymatic-isotopic assay indicated the formation of… (More)
