FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Histamine is a ubiquitous messenger molecule released from mast cells, enterochromaffin-like cells, and neurons. Its various actions are mediated by a family of histamine receptors, which are a subset of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily. This gene encodes a histamine receptor that is predominantly expressed in haematopoietic cells. The protein is thought to play a role in inflammation and allergy reponses. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit decreased allergic response to airway inflammation and decreased Th2 responses. [provided by MGI curators]
