  • Histamine is released largely
    by basophils and mast cells,
    causing vasodilation and
    bronchoconstriction.
  • H1 receptors mediate type I
    hypersensitivity.
  • H2 receptors mediate gastric
    acid and pepsin secretion.
  • Nitric oxide is released largely
    by vascular endothelium,
    causing vasodilation
  • Heme is a major component
    of hemoglobin and myoglobin.
  • Protein structures are
    determined by x-ray
    diffraction analysis.
  • Vitamin C is required for the
    hydroxylation of proline and
    lysine during collagen
    synthesis.
  • The amount of hydroxyproline
    and hydroxylysine provide a
    good estimate of collagen
    content since they are not
    found in many other proteins.
  • Tropocollagen is the longest
    known protein. Found in all
    collagen and reticular fibers,
    except in the thymus.
