Granulated cells that are found in almost all tissues, most abundantly in the skin and the gastrointestinal tract. Like the BASOPHILS, mast cells contain large amounts of HISTAMINE and HEPARIN. Unlike basophils, mast cells normally remain in the tissues and do not circulate in the blood. Mast cells, derived from the bone marrow stem cells, are regulated by the STEM CELL FACTOR.
The secretion of histamine from mast cell and basophil granules by exocytosis. This can be initiated by a number of factors, all of which involve binding of IgE, cross-linked by antigen, to the mast cell or basophil's Fc receptors. Once released, histamine binds to a number of different target cell receptors and exerts a wide variety of effects.
Passive Cutaneous Anaphylaxis
An evanescent cutaneous reaction occurring when antibody is injected into a local area on the skin and antigen is subsequently injected intravenously along with a dye. The dye makes the rapidly occurring capillary dilatation and increased vascular permeability readily visible by leakage into the reaction site. PCA is a sensitive reaction for detecting very small quantities of antibodies and is also a method for studying the mechanisms of immediate hypersensitivity.
A hexosaminidase specific for non-reducing N-acetyl-D-hexosamine residues in N-acetyl-beta-D-hexosaminides. It acts on GLUCOSIDES; GALACTOSIDES; and several OLIGOSACCHARIDES. Two specific mammalian isoenzymes of beta-N-acetylhexoaminidase are referred to as HEXOSAMINIDASE A and HEXOSAMINIDASE B. Deficiency of the type A isoenzyme causes TAY-SACHS DISEASE, while deficiency of both A and B isozymes causes SANDHOFF DISEASE. The enzyme has also been used as a tumor marker to distinguish between malignant and benign disease.
Basophil Degranulation Test
The smaller fragment generated from the cleavage of complement C3 by C3 CONVERTASE. C3a, a 77-amino acid peptide, is a mediator of local inflammatory process. It induces smooth MUSCLE CONTRACTION, and HISTAMINE RELEASE from MAST CELLS and LEUKOCYTES. C3a is considered an anaphylatoxin along with COMPLEMENT C4A; COMPLEMENT C5A; and COMPLEMENT C5A, DES-ARGININE.
The property of blood capillary ENDOTHELIUM that allows for the selective exchange of substances between the blood and surrounding tissues and through membranous barriers such as the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER; BLOOD-AQUEOUS BARRIER; BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER; BLOOD-NERVE BARRIER; BLOOD-RETINAL BARRIER; and BLOOD-TESTIS BARRIER. Small lipid-soluble molecules such as carbon dioxide and oxygen move freely by diffusion. Water and water-soluble molecules cannot pass through the endothelial walls and are dependent on microscopic pores. These pores show narrow areas (TIGHT JUNCTIONS) which may limit large molecule movement.

Receptors, Prostaglandin E, EP3 Subtype
An ergot derivative that is a congener of LYSERGIC ACID DIETHYLAMIDE. It antagonizes the effects of serotonin in blood vessels and gastrointestinal smooth muscle, but has few of the properties of other ergot alkaloids. Methysergide is used prophylactically in migraine and other vascular headaches and to antagonize serotonin in the carcinoid syndrome.
Phospholipase C gamma
A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.
Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.
Bone Marrow Cells
Disease Models, Animal
Specific molecular sites on the surface of various cells, including B-lymphocytes and macrophages, that combine with IMMUNOGLOBULIN Gs. Three subclasses exist: Fc gamma RI (the CD64 antigen, a low affinity receptor), Fc gamma RII (the CD32 antigen, a high affinity receptor), and Fc gamma RIII (the CD16 antigen, a low affinity receptor).
Lysosomal-Associated Membrane Protein 1
A G-protein-coupled, proteinase-activated receptor that is expressed in a variety of tissues including ENDOTHELIUM; LEUKOCYTES; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. The receptor is activated by TRYPSIN, which cleaves off the N-terminal peptide from the receptor. The new N-terminal peptide is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The uncleaved receptor can also be activated by the N-terminal peptide present on the activated THROMBIN RECEPTOR and by small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal sequence.
Non-antibody proteins secreted by inflammatory leukocytes and some non-leukocytic cells, that act as intercellular mediators. They differ from classical hormones in that they are produced by a number of tissue or cell types rather than by specialized glands. They generally act locally in a paracrine or autocrine rather than endocrine manner.

Killer Cells, Natural
Bone marrow-derived lymphocytes that possess cytotoxic properties, classically directed against transformed and virus-infected cells. Unlike T CELLS; and B CELLS; NK CELLS are not antigen specific. The cytotoxicity of natural killer cells is determined by the collective signaling of an array of inhibitory and stimulatory CELL SURFACE RECEPTORS. A subset of T-LYMPHOCYTES referred to as NATURAL KILLER T CELLS shares some of the properties of this cell type.
Leukemia, Basophilic, Acute
Tendency of the smooth muscle of the tracheobronchial tree to contract more intensely in response to a given stimulus than it does in the response seen in normal individuals. This condition is present in virtually all symptomatic patients with asthma. The most prominent manifestation of this smooth muscle contraction is a decrease in airway caliber that can be readily measured in the pulmonary function laboratory.
The process in which the neutrophil is stimulated by diverse substances, resulting in degranulation and/or generation of reactive oxygen products, and culminating in the destruction of invading pathogens. The stimulatory substances, including opsonized particles, immune complexes, and chemotactic factors, bind to specific cell-surface receptors on the neutrophil.
An iron-binding protein that was originally characterized as a milk protein. It is widely distributed in secretory fluids and is found in the neutrophilic granules of LEUKOCYTES. The N-terminal part of lactoferrin possesses a serine protease which functions to inactivate the TYPE III SECRETION SYSTEM used by bacteria to export virulence proteins for host cell invasion.
Signal transduction mechanisms whereby calcium mobilization (from outside the cell or from intracellular storage pools) to the cytoplasm is triggered by external stimuli. Calcium signals are often seen to propagate as waves, oscillations, spikes, sparks, or puffs. The calcium acts as an intracellular messenger by activating calcium-responsive proteins.
A biochemical messenger and regulator, synthesized from the essential amino acid L-TRYPTOPHAN. In humans it is found primarily in the central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and blood platelets. Serotonin mediates several important physiological functions including neurotransmission, gastrointestinal motility, hemostasis, and cardiovascular integrity. Multiple receptor families (RECEPTORS, SEROTONIN) explain the broad physiological actions and distribution of this biochemical mediator.
Phosphoric Monoester Hydrolases
Borrelia burgdorferi spirochetes induce mast cell activation and cytokine release. (1/1340)The Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi, is introduced into human hosts via tick bites. Among the cell types present in the skin which may initially contact spirochetes are mast cells. Since spirochetes are known to activate a variety of cell types in vitro, we tested whether B. burgdorferi spirochetes could activate mast cells. We report here that freshly isolated rat peritoneal mast cells or mouse MC/9 mast cells cultured in vitro with live or freeze-thawed B. burgdorferi spirochetes undergo low but detectable degranulation, as measured by [5-3H] hydroxytryptamine release, and they synthesize and secrete the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). In contrast to findings in previous studies, where B. burgdorferi-associated activity was shown to be dependent upon protein lipidation, mast cell TNF-alpha release was not induced by either lipidated or unlipidated recombinant OspA. This activity was additionally shown to be protease sensitive and surface expressed. Finally, comparisons of TNF-alpha-inducing activity in known low-, intermediate-, and high-passage B. burgdorferi B31 isolates demonstrated passage-dependent loss of activity, indicating that the activity is probably plasmid encoded. These findings document the presence in low-passage B. burgdorferi spirochetes of a novel lipidation-independent activity capable of inducing cytokine release from host cells. (+info)
Potent mast cell degranulation and vascular permeability triggered by urocortin through activation of corticotropin-releasing hormone receptors. (2/1340)Urocortin (Ucn) is related to corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), and both are released in the brain under stress where they stimulate CRH 1 and 2 receptors (CRHR). Outside the brain, they may have proinflammatory actions through activation of mast cells, which are located perivascularly close to nerve endings and degranulate in response to acute psychological stress. Here, we report that a concentration of intradermal Ucn as low as 10 nM induced dose-dependent rat skin mast cell degranulation and increased vascular permeability. This effect appeared to be equipotent to that of calcitonin gene-related peptide and neurotensin. Ucn-induced skin vasodilation was inhibited by pretreatment with the mast cell stabilizer disodium cromoglycate (cromolyn) and was absent in the mast cell-deficient W/Wv mice. The selective nonpeptide CRH receptor 1 antagonist, antalarmin and the nonselective peptide antagonist astressin both reduced vascular permeability triggered by Ucn but not that by Substance P or histamine. In contrast, the peptide antagonist alpha-helical CRH-(9-41) reduced the effect of all three. The vasodilatory effect of Ucn was largely inhibited by pretreatment with H1 receptor antagonists, suggesting that histamine is the major mediator involved in vitro. Neuropeptide depletion of sensory neurons, treatment with the ganglionic blocker hexamethonium, or in situ skin infiltration with the local anesthetic lidocaine did not affect Ucn-induced vascular permeability, indicating that its in situ effect was not mediated through the peripheral nervous system. These results indicate that Ucn is one of the most potent triggers of rat mast cell degranulation and skin vascular permeability. This effect of Ucn may explain stress-induced disorders, such as atopic dermatitis or psoriasis, and may lead to new forms of treatment. (+info)
A functional granulocyte colony-stimulating factor receptor is required for normal chemoattractant-induced neutrophil activation. (3/1340)Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is a hematopoietic growth factor that is widely used to treat neutropenia. In addition to stimulating polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) production, G-CSF may have significant effects on PMN function. Because G-CSF receptor (G-CSFR)-deficient mice do not have the expected neutrophilia after administration of human interleukin-8 (IL-8), we examined the effect of the loss of G-CSFR on IL-8-stimulated PMN function. Compared with wild-type PMNs, PMNs isolated from G-CSFR-deficient mice demonstrated markedly decreased chemotaxis to IL-8. PMN emigration into the skin of G-CSFR-deficient mice in response to IL-8 was also impaired. Significant chemotaxis defects were also seen in response to N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine, zymosan-activated serum, or macrophage inflammatory protein-2. The defective chemotactic response to IL-8 does not appear to be due to impaired chemoattractant receptor function, as the number of IL-8 receptors and chemoattractant-induced calcium influx, actin polymerization, and release of gelatinase B were comparable to those of wild-type PMNs. Chemoattractant-induced adhesion of G-CSFR-deficient PMNs was significantly impaired, suggesting a defect in beta2-integrin activation. Collectively, these data demonstrate that selective defects in PMN activation are present in G-CSFR-deficient mice and indicate that G-CSF plays an important role in regulating PMN chemokine responsiveness.

Neurotensin is a proinflammatory neuropeptide in colonic inflammation. (4/1340)The neuropeptide neurotensin mediates several intestinal functions, including chloride secretion, motility, and cellular growth. However, whether this peptide participates in intestinal inflammation is not known. Toxin A, an enterotoxin from Clostridium difficile, mediates pseudomembranous colitis in humans. In animal models, toxin A causes an acute inflammatory response characterized by activation of sensory neurons and intestinal nerves and immune cells of the lamina propria. Here we show that neurotensin and its receptor are elevated in the rat colonic mucosa following toxin A administration. Pretreatment of rats with the neurotensin receptor antagonist SR-48, 692 inhibits toxin A-induced changes in colonic secretion, mucosal permeability, and histologic damage. Exposure of colonic explants to toxin A or neurotensin causes mast cell degranulation, which is inhibited by SR-48,692. Because substance P was previously shown to mediate mast cell activation, we examined whether substance P is involved in neurotensin-induced mast cell degranulation. Our results show that neurotensin-induced mast cell degranulation in colonic explants is inhibited by the substance P (neurokinin-1) receptor antagonist CP-96,345, indicating that colonic mast activation in response to neurotensin involves release of substance P. We conclude that neurotensin plays a key role in the pathogenesis of C. difficile-induced colonic inflammation and mast cell activation. (+info)
Mucosal mast cell secretion processes imaged using three-photon microscopy of 5-hydroxytryptamine autofluorescence. (5/1340)The secretion process of the mucosal mast cell line RBL-2H3 was imaged using infrared three photon excitation (3PE) of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) autofluorescence, a measurement previously difficult because of the technical intractability of deep UV optics. Images of prestimulation 5-HT distributions were analyzed in loaded cell populations (those incubated in a 5-HT-rich medium overnight) and in unloaded populations and were found to be strictly quantifiable by comparison with bulk population high-performance liquid chromatography measurements. Antigenically stimulated cells were observed to characteristically ruffle and spread as granular 5-HT disappeared with no detectable granule movement. Individual cells exhibited highly heterogeneous release kinetics, often with quasi-periodic bursts. Neighboring granule disappearances were correlated, indicative of either spatially localized signaling or granule-granule interactions. In one-half of the granule release events, weak residual fluorescence was visible suggestive of leftover 5-HT still bound to the granule matrix. The terminal stages of secretion (>300 s) consisted primarily of unresolved granules and remainder 5-HT leakage from already released granules. (+info)
Tracking single secretory granules in live chromaffin cells by evanescent-field fluorescence microscopy. (6/1340)We have observed secretory granules beneath the plasma membrane of chromaffin cells. Using evanescent-field excitation by epiillumination, we have illuminated a thin layer of cytosol where cells adhere to glass coverslips. Up to 600 frames could be recorded at diffraction-limited resolution without appreciable photodynamic damage. We localized single granules with an uncertainty of approximately 30 nm and tracked their motion in three dimensions. Granules in resting cells wander randomly as if imprisoned in a cage that leaves approximately 70 nm space around a granule. The "cage" itself moves only slowly (D = 2 x 10(-12) cm2/s). Rarely do granules arrive at or depart from the plasma membrane of resting cells. Stimulation increases lateral motion only slightly. After the plasma membrane has been depleted of granules by exocytosis, fresh granules can be seen to approach it at an angle. The method will be useful for exploring the molecular steps preceding exocytosis at the level of single granules. (+info)
LXA4, aspirin-triggered 15-epi-LXA4, and their analogs selectively downregulate PMN azurophilic degranulation. (7/1340)The eicosanoid lipoxin A4 (LXA4) is biosynthesized in vivo by cells present at inflammatory sites and appears to be an endogenous anti-inflammatory mediator. Further, in the presence of aspirin, the 15-epimer of LXA4 (15-epi-LXA4) is biosynthesized and may mediate some of aspirin's desirable bioactions. LXA4, 15-epi-LXA4, and their stable analogs inhibit inflammation in established animal models, indicating that these compounds may be useful for treating inflammatory disease states. To investigate the cellular mechanisms by which these lipid mediators downregulate inflammation, we investigated whether these eicosanoids could influence receptor-mediated degranulation of human neutrophils, an event thought to play a major causative role in several inflammatory disease states. LXA4, 15-epi-LXA4, and their stable analogs potently (IC50 < 1 nM) and selectively downregulated neutrophil release of azurophilic granule contents but did not affect other neutrophil secretory functions. Thus the cellular basis of action of these natural off-switches to inflammation appears to involve downregulation of neutrophil azurophilic granule release. (+info)
Nerve growth factor modifies the expression of inflammatory cytokines by mast cells via a prostanoid-dependent mechanism. (8/1340)Nerve growth factor (NGF) is well recognized to have a number of potent effects on mast cells, including increasing mast cell numbers in vivo and inducing mast cell degranulation in vitro. More recently, NGF has been demonstrated to induce PGD2 production by mast cells through the induction of mast cell cyclooxygenase expression. We have observed that NGF at doses as low as 10 ng/ml will induce IL-6 production and inhibit TNF-alpha release from rat peritoneal mast cells in the presence of lysophosphatidylserine as a cofactor. NGF synergizes with LPS treatment of peritoneal mast cells (PMC) for the induction of IL-6. Examination of the mechanism of this phenomenon has revealed that NGF can induce both rat PMC and mouse bone marrow-derived cultured mast cells to produce substantial levels of PGE2. This response is maximal at later time points 18-24 h after NGF activation. The ability of NGF to induce PGE2 is not dependent on mast cell degranulation. Other stimuli capable of inducing IL-6, such as LPS, do not induce production of this prostanoid. Inhibition of cyclooxygenase activity by PMC using either flurbiprofen or indomethacin inhibited both the NGF-induced PGE2 synthesis and the NGF-induced alterations in TNF-alpha and IL-6 production. These results suggest a role for mast cell-derived prostanoids in the regulation of local inflammatory responses and neuronal degeneration after tissue injury involving induction of NGF production.

Frontiers | Purinergic Signaling in Mast Cell Degranulation and Asthma | Pharmacology
Mast cells are responsible for the majority of allergic conditions. It was originally thought that almost all allergic events were mediated directly only via the high-affinity immunoglobulin E receptors. However, recent evidence showed that many other receptors, such as G protein-coupled receptors and ligand-gated ion channels, are also directly involved in mast cell degranulation, the release of inflammatory mediators such as histamine, serine proteases, leukotrienes, heparin, and serotonin. These mediators are responsible for the symptoms in allergic conditions such as allergic asthma. In recent years, it has been realized that purinergic signaling, induced via the activation of G protein-coupled adenosine receptors and P2Y nucleotide receptors, as well as by ATP-gated P2X receptors, plays a significant role in mast cell degranulation. Both adenosine and ATP can induce degranulation and bronchoconstriction on their own and synergistically with allergens. All three classes of receptors, adenosine, P2X
Differential regulation of mast cell degranulation versus cytokine secretion by the actin regulatory proteins Coronin1a and...
To provide a cellular basis for the increased cutaneous anaphylaxis in Coro1a−/−Coro1b−/− mice, we examined FcεRI-mediated MC degranulation in coronin-deficient BMMCs by measuring the release of β-hexosaminidase from prestored MC granules. Interestingly, antigen-mediated cross-linking of FcεRI resulted in significantly enhanced release of β-hexosaminidase activity from Coro1a−/− BMMCs as compared with WT cells (Fig. 2 b). Although Coro1b−/− BMMCs showed normal degranulation, the additional loss of Coro1b further increased hyperdegranulation in Coro1a−/− BMMCs. For maximal activation, cells were also stimulated with PMA/ionomycin, which overrides the observed hyperdegranulation phenotype of Coro1a−/−Coro1b−/− BMMCs.. Increased FcεRI-mediated degranulation of Coro1a−/− and Coro1a−/−Coro1b−/− BMMCs was further confirmed by assessing the up-regulation of CD107a cell surface expression, which is a marker for granule exocytosis (Fig. 2 c). Again, ...
Our results clearly demonstrate that acute psychological stress induces cardiac mast cell degranulation in 30 min through the local release of CRH, since anti-CRH serum or affinity purified antibody to CRH could neutralize this effect. The same antiserum to CRH used here had previously been shown to block carrageenin-induced skin inflammation (Karalis et al., 1991) and stress-induced dura mast cell degranulation (Theoharides et al., 1995). Pretreatment with the CRHR-1 selective antagonist Antalarmin partially reduced stress-induced mast cell degranulation, implying that CRH receptors are involved. This finding is supported by the fact that CRH receptor mRNA was shown to be expressed in mouse heart (Stenzelet al., 1995). Direct CRHR-mediated mast cell degranulation has recently been demonstrated in rat skin although human leukemic mast cells were shown to express mRNA for CRHR1 (Theoharideset al., 1998). The fact that antalarmin was only a weak inhibitor may be due to its poor solubility or the ...

Pyk2 Is Required for Neutrophil Degranulation and Host Defense Responses to Bacterial Infection | The Journal of Immunology
This study demonstrates an important role for the nonreceptor tyrosine kinase Pyk2 in the integrin-mediated activation of PMNs that contributes to normal degranulation responses required for efficient host defense to S. aureus infection. Pyk2-deficient PMNs exhibited reduced degranulation responses following integrin ligation both in vitro and during bacterial infection in vivo; however, they responded normally to soluble agonists, suggesting that the integrin signaling pathway was the major response affected in the pyk2 mutant cells. It is clear that unlike Src-family or Syk tyrosine kinases, Pyk2 is acting in a more distal step in the integrin signaling pathway, because many integrin-mediated functions were normal in pyk2−/− PMNs, including attachment, adhesion, and integrin-mediated activation of superoxide production. These limited impairments correlate with the only partially reduced integrin-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation responses, although reduction in phosphorylation of specific ...

PI3Kγ Adaptor Subunits Define Coupling to Degranulation and Cell Motility by Distinct PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 Pools in Mast Cells |...
Phosphoinositide 3-kinase γ (PI3Kγ) plays a major role in chronic inflammation and allergy. It is a heterodimer of a catalytic p110γ subunit and an adaptor protein, either p101 or the p101 homolog p84 (p87PIKAP). It is unclear whether both PI3Kγ complexes specifically modulate responses such as chemotaxis and degranulation. In mast cells, the p84:p110γ complex synergizes with immunoglobulin E (IgE)- and antigen-clustered FcɛRI receptor signaling and is required to achieve maximal degranulation. During this process, PI3Kγ is activated by ligands of heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein)-coupled receptors (GPCRs), in particular adenosine receptors, through autocrine and paracrine pathways. Here, we show that p110γ needs p84 to relay signals from GPCRs to formation of phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate [PtdIns(3,4,5)P3], phosphorylation of Akt, migration of cells, and synergistic adenosine-enforced degranulation. Furthermore, the absence of adaptor subunits ...
Brandy Holt - Page 221 - HDAC Inhibition for the Disruption of Latent HIV-1 Infection
Organic killer (NK) cells mediate GVL effects after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) by the production of inflammatory cytokines and by direct target lysis. suppression showed diminished NK cell degranulation. In contrast degranulation was normal or increased after T-cell replete transplants given with immune suppression. Strikingly target cell-induced IFNγ production was markedly reduced in every transplant settings specifically with T cell-depleted or naive T cell-containing umbilical cable blood grafts recommending a job for T cells in NK education. Although degranulation was equivalent in the KIR and KIR+? populations that coexpressed NKG2A focus on cell-induced IFNγ creation was limited by the subset of NK cells expressing KIR inhibited by self-ligands. Hence cytokine production and cytotoxic function usually do not coexist in NK cells reconstituting following allo-HCT consistently. Contact with IL-15 rapidly elevated target-inducible IFNγ creation indicative of ...

Involvement of Brutons tyrosine kinase in FcepsilonRI-dependent mast cell degranulation and cytokine production.
Author(s): Hata, D; Kawakami, Y; Inagaki, N; Lantz, CS; Kitamura, T; Khan, WN; Maeda-Yamamoto, M; Miura, T; Han, W; Hartman, SE; Yao, L; Nagai, H; Goldfeld, AE; Alt, FW; Galli, SJ; Witte, ON; Kawakami, T | Abstract: We investigated the role of Brutons tyrosine kinase (Btk) in FcepsilonRI-dependent activation of mouse mast cells, using xid and btk null mutant mice. Unlike B cell development, mast cell development is apparently normal in these btk mutant mice. However, mast cells derived from these mice exhibited significant abnormalities in FcepsilonRI-dependent function. xid mice primed with anti-dinitrophenyl monoclonal IgE antibody exhibited mildly diminished early-phase and severely blunted late-phase anaphylactic reactions in response to antigen challenge in vivo. Consistent with this finding, cultured mast cells derived from the bone marrow cells of xid or btk null mice exhibited mild impairments in degranulation, and more profound defects in the production of several cytokines, upon FcepsilonRI
Inhibitory effects of resveratrol on human mast cell degranulation, cytokine, chemokine and leukotriene release
Resveratrol, a polyphenol abundant in peanuts, red wine and the skin of grapes, has been shown to have anti-cancer, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, and may also have beneficial effects on allergic inflammation. We investigated the effects of resveratrol on human mast cell activation in comparison to the anti-allergy drug tranilast. In LAD2 mast cells, both resveratrol and tranilast inhibited degranulation induced by the mast cell activators substance P, IgE/anti-IgE, and compound 48/80. Resveratrol inhibition was immediate, preventing degranulation when added simultaneously to physiological stimuli, and the effect was sustained for up to 24 hrs. The inhibitory effect was not cAMP dependent, but may be attributable to calcium modulation, as resveratrol, and to a lesser extent tranilast, prevented substance P-induced increases in intracellular calcium. Resveratrol attenuated substance P-induced TNF and MCP-1 production and inhibited IgE-mediated release of cysteinyl leukotrienes, whereas
Molecular and morphological characterization of piecemeal degranulation in human neutrophil azurophilic granules | Allergy,...
Mediators pre-stored in neutrophil azurophilic granules are central to the acute inflammatory response and tissue degradation and damage through their proteolytic activity. Different granule populations mobilize and release their content via distinct and hierarchical molecular mechanisms. The molecular mechanisms by which mediators pre-stored in azurophilic granules are mobilized and released to the extracellular space remain largely unknown. We used a number of complementary techniques including; confocal laser scanning microscopy, subcellular fractionation, flow cytometric analyses, Western blot analyses and electron microscopy to examine the ultrastructural and molecular nature of mediator release in neutrophil azurophilic granules. We found that following IL-8 activation, neutrophil azurophilic granules undergo piecemeal degranulation (selective mediator release) leading to altered granule content. Piecemeal degranulation of azurophilic granules is characterized by budding of small secretory ...

Neutrophil degranulation inhibits potential hydroxyl-radical formation. Relative impact of myeloperoxidase and lactoferrin...
Hydroxyl radical (.OH) formation by neutrophils in vitro requires exogenous iron. Two recent studies [Britigan, Rosen, Thompson, Chai & Cohen (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 17026-17032; Winterbourn (1987) J. Clin. Invest. 78, 545-550] both reported that neutrophil degranulation could potentially inhibit the formation of .OH, but differed in their conclusions as to the responsible factor, myeloperoxidase (MPO) or lactoferrin (LF). By using a previously developed spin-trapping system which allows specific on-line detection of superoxide anion (O2-) and .OH production, the impact of MPO and LF release on neutrophil .OH production was compared. When iron-diethylenetriaminepenta-acetic acid-supplemented neutrophils were stimulated with phorbol myristate acetate or opsonized zymosan, .OH formation occurred, but terminated prematurely in spite of continued O2- generation. Inhibition of MPO by azide increased the magnitude, but not the duration, of .OH formation. No azide effect was noted when MPO-deficient ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase in degranulation induced by IgE-dependent and -independent mechanisms in rat basophilic RBL-2H3 (ml) cells. AU - Hirasawa, Noriyasu. AU - Sato, Yukako. AU - Yomogida, Shin Ichi. AU - Mue, Suetsugu. AU - Ohuchi, Kazuo. PY - 1997/5/1. Y1 - 1997/5/1. N2 - We have examined the role of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase) in the degranulation induced by the antigen, an IgE-dependent stimulant, and by carbachol and thapsigargin, IgE-independent stimulants, in the muscarine ml receptor-transfected mast cell line RBL-2H3 (ml) cells. These stimulants commonly increased PI3-kinase activity in the anti-phosphotyrosine immunoprecipitate. The PI3-kinase inhibitors wortmannin and LY294002 inhibited the degranulation induced by these stimulants. The membrane ruffling induced by the antigen or carbachol was also inhibited by wortmannin. In contrast, thapsigargin induced by membrane ruffling but induced microspikes, which was not affected by wortmannin. ...
Hypoxia upregulates neutrophil degranulation and potential for tissue injury - White Rose Research Online
Background: The inflamed bronchial mucosal surface is a profoundly hypoxic environment. Neutrophilic airway inflammation and neutrophil-derived proteases have been linked to disease progression in conditions such as COPD and cystic fibrosis, but the effects of hypoxia on potentially harmful neutrophil functional responses such as degranulation are unknown. Methods and results: Following exposure to hypoxia (0.8% oxygen, 3 kPa for 4 h), neutrophils stimulated with inflammatory agonists (granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor or platelet-activating factor and formylated peptide) displayed a markedly augmented (twofold to sixfold) release of azurophilic (neutrophil elastase, myeloperoxidase), specific (lactoferrin) and gelatinase (matrix metalloproteinase-9) granule contents. Neutrophil supernatants derived under hypoxic but not normoxic conditions induced extensive airway epithelial cell detachment and death, which was prevented by coincubation with the antiprotease α-1 antitrypsin; ...

Mast cells are best known for their function in hypersensitive reactions, where aggregation of FcRI leads to the release of mast cell mediators leading to hypersensitive symptoms. although activation-induced success is certainly suffered, suggesting a minimal function for Bcl-XL, Bcl-2, Mcl-1 and Bcl-w. Reducing but not really amounts by siRNA inhibited activation-induced mast cell success. We also demonstrate that mast cell phrase of Bfl-1 is certainly raised in birch-pollen-provocated epidermis and in lesions of atopic dermatitis and psoriasis sufferers. Used jointly, our outcomes high light Bfl-1 as a main effector in activation-induced individual mast cell success. Launch Mast cells are known to end up being central regulators and effectors in allergic illnesses. When a multivalent antigen binds to IgE occupying the high affinity receptor for IgE (FcRI), receptor aggregation and following mast cell account activation takes place. This total result in mast cell degranulation, adjustments in ...

We investigated the roles of p38 MAP kinase and Smad3 in TGF-β-mediated cell responses in BMMCs. Treating BMMCs with TGF-β induced the phosphorylation of p38 within 2 h and persisted for 24 h. The involvement of p38 in TGF-β-induced cell responses depended upon mast cell functions; it was necessary for up-regulation of mmcp-1 and migration, but not for up-regulation of mmcp-7 and inhibition of metabolic activity. New protein synthesis was required for the up-regulation of mmcp-1 but not ...

Allergy - Credo Reference
Other immune cells also play an important role in allergy and the allergic reaction. Activated B cells (or plasma cells) produce the IgE antibodies selectively in allergic individuals. B cells are also able to make other antibodies (including IgG) against allergens that do not lead to mast cell degranulation but are protective against allergic inflammation. Allergen-specific IgG antibody, but not IgE, has been found in nonallergic individuals, demonstrating that their immune systems can also recognize and respond to the allergen, but without inducing an inflammatory response.. When a previously sensitized person comes in contact with the same allergen for the second time, the allergen crosslinks two or more molecules of IgE on the same mast cell or basophil, leading to degranulation. The release of granules causes the effects of inflammation, either systemically or locally at the site of exposure (lungs, skin, etc.). These can include redness, swelling, itchiness, increased vascular ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Acrolein induction of oxidative stress and degranulation in mast cells. AU - Hochman, Daniel J.. AU - Collaco, Christopher R.. AU - Brooks, Edward G. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - Increases in asthma worldwide have been associated epidemiologically with expanding urban air pollution. The mechanistic relationship between airway hyper-responsiveness, inflammation, and ambient airborne triggers remains ambiguous. Acrolein, a ubiquitous aldehyde pollutant, is a product of incomplete combustion reactions. Acrolein is abundant in cigarette smoke, effluent from industrial smokestacks, diesel exhaust, and even hot oil cooking vapors. Acrolein is a potent airway irritant and can induce airway hyper-responsiveness and inflammation in the lungs of animal models. In the present study, we utilized the mast cell analog, RBL-2H3, to interrogate the responses of cells relevant to airway inflammation and allergic responses as a model for the induction of asthma-like conditions upon exposure to ...
Introduction to Immunology Tutorial
IgE binds to the surface of a class of white blood cells called mast cells. The presence of antigen that binds to the IgE leads to the release of granules by the mast cells that contain a number of mediators of inflammation, including histamine. These factors are important in immune response that protect us from parasites, including helminths (worms). Some humans are more likely to make an IgE response to non-pathogenic antigens, including pollens. These individuals suffer from allergies caused by IgE-stimulated mast cell degranulation ...

Inflammatory Response of Mast Cells during Influenza A Virus Infection Is Mediated by Active Infection and RIG-I Signaling |...
Mast cells are tissue-resident hematopoietic cells. Because infectious agents enter the host through environmentally exposed barriers, such as the skin, gastrointestinal tract, and respiratory tract, mast cells are poised to be one of the first cell types to respond to invading pathogens. Furthermore, mast cells express a wide array of pattern recognition receptors that endow them with the ability to respond to a broad range of stimuli, such as infections and pathogenic conditions (51). It is well established that mast cells play crucial immune surveillance roles during bacterial and parasitic infections (8, 12). In contrast, the role of mast cells in the immune surveillance of viral infections has received less attention. In the current study, we examined the role of mast cells in sensing IAV infection and initiating the subsequent inflammatory response.. A primary rationale for our work stems from the recent work by Teijaro et al. (6), who demonstrated that blunting the cytokine storm ...
Frontiers | Mast Cells as Cellular Sensors in Inflammation and Immunity | Immunology
Mast cells are localized in tissues. Intense research on these cells over the years has demonstrated their role as effector cells in the maintenance of tissue integrity following injury produced by infectious agents, toxins, metabolic states etc. After stimulation they release a sophisticated array of inflammatory mediators, cytokines and growth factors to orchestrate an inflammatory response. These mediators can directly initiate tissue responses on resident cells, but they have also been shown to regulate other infiltrating immune cell functions. Research in recent years has revealed that the outcome of mast cell actions is not always detrimental for the host but can also limit disease development. In addition, mast cell functions highly depend on the physiological context in the organism. Depending on the genetic background, strength of the injurious event, the particular microenvironment, mast cells direct responses ranging from pro- to anti-inflammatory. It appears that they have evolved as

An Investigation of Dysregulated Neutrophil Activity in Alpha-1 Antitr by Sarah A. Landers
Alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency (AATD) is characterised by excessive neutrophil degranulation and a protease: anti-protease imbalance leading to premature emphysema. Current specialised treatment for AATD consists of once weekly infusion of plasma purified AAT. Neutrophil degranulation is under the control of small GTP-binding proteins, including Ras-related C3 botulinum toxin substrate 2 (Rac2). The molecular basis for aberrant neutrophil degranulation in AATD has not been elucidated to date. The aim of this study was to fully characterise neutrophil degranulation in AATD and to determine the effects of AAT augmentation therapy on the AATD neutrophil. In this study, we examined degranulation by AATD neutrophils by Western blotting. This revealed a 3-fold increase in levels of myeloperoxidase (MPO), human cathelicidin antimicrobial protein (hCAP-18) and matrix metalloprotease-9 (MMP-9), markers of primary, secondary and tertiary granules, respectively (p=0.023, p=0.036 and p=0.042, respectively).
Imaging immune response of skin mast cells in vivo with two-photon mic by Pastila K. Riikka, Charles P. Lin et al.
Intravital multiphoton microscopy has provided insightful information of the dynamic process of immune cells in vivo. However, the use of exogenous labeling agents limits its applications. There is no method to perform functional imaging of mast cells, a population of innate tissue-resident immune cells. Mast cells are widely recognized as the effector cells in allergy. Recently their roles as immunoregulatory cells in certain innate and adaptive immune responses are being actively investigated. Here we report in vivo mouse skin mast cells imaging with two-photon microscopy using endogenous tryptophan as the fluorophore. We studied the following processes. 1) Mast cells degranulation, the first step in the mast cell activation process in which the granules are released into peripheral tissue to trigger downstream reactions. 2) Mast cell reconstitution, a procedure commonly used to study mast cells functioning by comparing the data from wild type mice, mast cell-deficient mice, and mast-cell deficient

Mast Cell Disease & Fibromyalgia (FM): Can Mast Cell Degranulation Cause FM Symptoms? | MastCellDisease.com
Effective management of fibromyalgia symptoms is complex and requires a multidisciplinary approach evaluating pain, function and the psychosocial milieu of the fibromyalgia patient. Response and tolerance to treatment varies among patients. Nonpharmacological interventions are a necessity and complement drug therapy. A strategic polypharmacy approach using drugs with different mechanisms of action can be helpful. An organized approach that manages the worst symptom first can facilitate easier management of the other symptoms. Effective symptom control is expanding as the underlying pathophysiology of fibromyalgia becomes clearer. The emergence of novel agents that are more effective in shutting down central sensitization may be more effective in treating this disabling condition. The provider can help by believing in the patient, and evaluating and treating the patient systematically. ...
The therapeutic effect of mitochondria-targeted antioxidant 10-(6´-plastoquinonyl)decyltriphenylphosphonium bromide (SkQ1) in experimental models of acute inflammation and wound repair has been shown earlier. It was suggested that the antiinflammatory activity of SkQ1 is related to its ability to suppress inflammatory activation of the vascular endothelium and neutrophil migration into tissues. Here, we demonstrated that SkQ1 inhibits activation of mast cell (MCs) followed by their degranulation and histamine release in vivo and in vitro. Intraperitoneal injections of SkQ1 in the mouse air-pouch model reduced the number of leukocytes in the air-pouch cavity and significantly decreased the histamine content in it, as well as suppressing MC degranulation in the air-pouch tissue. The direct effect of SkQ1 on MCs was studied in vitro in the rat basophilic leukemia RBL-2H3 cell line. SkQ1 inhibited induced degranulation of RBL-2H3 cells. These results suggest that mitochondrial reactive oxygen ...
Degranulation - Wikipedia
Degranulation is a cellular process that releases antimicrobial cytotoxic or other molecules from secretory vesicles called granules found inside some cells. It is used by several different cells involved in the immune system, including granulocytes (neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils) and mast cells. It is also used by certain lymphocytes such as natural killer (NK) cells and cytotoxic T cells, whose main purpose is to destroy invading microorganisms. Antigens interact with IgE molecules already bound to high affinity Fc receptors on the surface of mast cells to induce degranulation, via the activation of tyrosine kinases within the cell. The mast cell releases a mixture of compounds, including histamine, proteoglycans, serotonin, and serine proteases from its cytoplasmic granules. In a similar mechanism, activated eosinophils release preformed mediators such as major basic protein, and enzymes such as peroxidase, following interaction between their Fc receptors and IgE molecules that are ...

Did You Know? Mast Cell Induced Toxic Shock Can Be Fatal | MastCellDisease.com
In very severe cases of degranulation, the chemical soup generated by degranulating mast cells may lead to flushing of the body and the face, swelling of the eyes, nose and throat (angioedema), choking responses in the throat and loss of consciousness (anaphylaxis).. Moreover, because erupting (degranulating) mast cells dump high levels of histamines, prostaglandins, heparin, neutral proteases, acid hydrolases, chemokines, cytokines, etc. into the interstitial areas between cells, the body also experiences a form of toxic shock (Hermine et al., 2008). In some cases, the toxic shock is fatal. As if the ones listed arent bad enough, in that etc. after cytokines there can be dozens of other mediators flooding our bodies all at once!! This is another reason why its soooo important to avoid triggers (and subsequent degranulation) as much as possible. Its not just because it can ruin our day or our week or even because it can cause long term damage to our organs and systems - it can be ...
RBL-2H3 and primary mast cells and their use in screening novel anti-inflammatory compounds
Mast cells (MC) have been mainly studied as key effectors in allergic diseases and inflammatory conditions such hypersensitivity reactions, asthma, atopic dermatitis and multiple sclerosis. Following the crosslinkage of membraneous FcεRI, by antigens, a large number of chemical mediators are secreted. This event leads to the recruitment and activation of basophils and eosinophils that sustain the inflammatory response. The role of mast cells, however, is not limited to the initiation of allergic response but they are also fundamental players in the innate immune response; for example they can be activated directly by pathogens through a family of pattern recognition receptors called Toll-like receptors (TLRs). In particular, TLR2 and 4 seem to be crucial to the mast cell response to pathogens. In rodents, mast cells respond to lipopolysaccharide through their TLR4s by the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines without concurrent degranulation or they can degranulate following peptidoglycan ...

Anaphylaxis is a clinical syndrome often presenting as a medical emergency requiring immediate recognition of symptoms, proper treatment and, if possible, the identification and elimination of risk factors. The symptoms of anaphylaxis are mainly determined by chemicals mediators released upon activation of the immune cells. Mast cells which are abundant in cardiovascular tissues, are the main cells activated during anaphylaxis. Human cardiac mast cells have been identified at the site of sarcolemma, within perivascular tissues, in the adventitia of large coronary arteries, and within coronary plaques. Cardiac mast cells display unique immunological and functional features that make them distinct from mast cells in other tissues. Mast cells play a complex role in the development of several pathological processes in the heart. High affinity receptors for IgE (FcṘI) and for C5a anaphylatoxin are involved in development of systemic and cardiac anaphylactic reactions. Furthermore, in myocardial ...
Positive and Negative Signals in Mast Cell Activation
Mast cells are powerful immune modulators of the tissue microenvironment. Within seconds of activation, these cells release a variety of preformed biologically active products, followed by a wave of mediator synthesis and secretion. Increasing evidence suggests that an intricate network of inhibitory and activating receptors, specific signaling pathways, and adaptor proteins governs mast cell responsiveness to stimuli. Here, we discuss the biological and clinical relevance of negative and positive signaling modalities that control mast cell activation, with an emphasis on novel Fc epsilon RI regulators, immunoglobulin E (IgE)-independent pathways [e.g., Mas-related G protein-coupled receptor X2 (MRGPRX2)], tetraspanins, and the CD300 family of inhibitory and activating receptors.. ...

A carbon nanotube toxicity paradigm driven by mast cells and the IL-₃₃/ST₂ axis. - Semantic Scholar
Concern about the use of nanomaterials has increased significantly in recent years due to potentially hazardous impacts on human health. Mast cells are critical for innate and adaptive immune responses, often modulating allergic and pathogenic conditions. Mast cells are well known to act in response to danger signals through a variety of receptors and pathways including IL-33 and the IL-1-like receptor ST2. Here, the involvement of mast cells and the IL-33/ST2 axis in pulmonary and cardiovascular responses to multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) exposure are examined. Toxicological effects of MWCNTs are observed only in mice with a sufficient population of mast cells and are not observed when mast cells are absent or incapable of responding to IL-33. Our findings establish for the first time that mast cells and the IL-33/ST2 axis orchestrates adverse pulmonary and cardiovascular responses to an engineered nanomaterial, giving insight into a previously unknown mechanism of toxicity. This novel mechanism

Drugim rečima njihovi lanci atoma ugljenika su potpuno zasićeni atomima vodonika. Postoje mnoge vrste prirodnih zasićenih masnih kiselina, koje uglavnom razlikuju po proju atoma ugljenika, od 3 ugljenika (propionska kiselina) do 36 (heksatriakontanoinska kiselina). Razne masti sadrže različite proporcije zasićenih i nezasićenih masti. Primeri hrane koja sadrži visoke proporcije zasićene masti su kajmak, sir, puter, i topljeno maslo; loj, slanina, i masna mesa; kao i pojedini biljni proizvodi kao što su kokosovo ulje, pamukovo ulje, ulje palminih koštica, čokolada, itd. ...
