Histaminolysis of nicotinamidedinucleotide occupies a place in the mucosa of the stomach during secretion of HC1 and can be discerned by the accumulation of methylnicotinamide, a product of histaminolysis (a break-down of the co-enzyme nicotinamidedinucleotide under the effect of histamine). Histaminolysis in the gastric mucosa whether it is caused by histamine or insulin, points to the similarity of the basic type of biochemical mechanism of HC1 secretion. Histamine brings histaminolysis about directly, while insulin, most probably, brings it about by its formation in the tissue when secretion is stimulated.
