Another enzyme, histamine-N-methyltransferase (HNMT, aka HMT) inactivates histamine only in the intracellular space of cells, through methylation.
Recent research indicates that in tissues where both enzymes occur together, DAO tends to exhibit a histamine-degrading capacity ten times higher than that of HNMT (Huertz, 2003).
