brain neurotransmitter involved in allergic responses and acid secretion by stomach Histamine is a potent vasodilator, released in large amounts as part of the immune response. Histamine acts by binding receptors. Antagonists such as Tagamet™ promote healing of stomach ulcers by inhibiting acid secretion. GABA and Histamine are produced in PLP-dependent decarboxylation reactions
