Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Here, we show that methylnicotinate induces significant PGD2 release from human mast cells and serotonin from human platelets.

We have shown that cutaneous vasodilatation induced by compounds such as sorbic acid and methylnicotinate is mediated by PGD2.

The … of PGD2 in response … topically applied methylnicotinate occurred in a dose-dependent manner over the concentration range of 10(-3) to 10(-1) M. The release of PGD2 was not accompanied by a release of histamine, suggesting that the release of PGD2 was not from the mast cell.
Topical … methylnicotinate (10(-1) M) to the forearms of human volunteers … in 58- to 122-times increases in levels of PGD2 and 25- to 33-times increases in levels of the metabolite of PGD2, 9 …,11 beta-PGF2, in blood drawn from the antecubital vein draining the treated sites.
