Histamine dihydrochloride is a hydrophilic amine compound derived through the decarboxylation of histidine by L-histidine decarboxylase. It is a substrate used to assay histamine-N-methyltransferase ion-pair extraction of histamine using HPLC. Additionally, histamine dihydrochloride activates nitric oxide synthase and inhibits formation of reactive oxygen species.
