The rosette-forming cell may be an antibody-forming cell, a memory cell, a T-cell, a cell bearing surface cytophilic antibodies, or a monocyte possessing Fc receptors. Rosette formation can be used to identify specific populations of these cells.
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.

gp49B1 inhibits IgE-initiated mast cell activation through both immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs, recruitment of src homology 2 domain-containing phosphatase-1, and suppression of early and late calcium mobilization. (1/1533)

We define by molecular, pharmacologic, and physiologic approaches the proximal mechanism by which the immunoglobulin superfamily member gp49B1 inhibits mast cell activation mediated by the high affinity Fc receptor for IgE (FcepsilonRI). In rat basophilic leukemia-2H3 cells expressing transfected mouse gp49B1, mutation of tyrosine to phenylalanine in either of the two immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs of the gp49B1 cytoplasmic domain partially suppressed gp49B1-mediated inhibition of exocytosis, whereas mutation of both abolished inhibitory capacity. Sodium pervanadate elicited tyrosine phosphorylation of native gp49B1 and association of the tyrosine phosphatases src homology 2 domain-containing phosphatase-1 (SHP-1) and SHP-2 in mouse bone marrow-derived mast cells (mBMMCs). SHP-1 associated transiently with gp49B1 within 1 min after coligation of gp49B1 with cross-linked FcepsilonRI in mBMMCs. SHP-1-deficient mBMMCs exhibited a partial loss of gp49B1-mediated inhibition of FcepsilonRI-induced exocytosis at concentrations of IgE providing optimal exocytosis, revealing a central, but not exclusive, SHP-1 requirement in the counter-regulatory pathway. Coligation of gp49B1 with cross-linked FcepsilonRI on mBMMCs inhibited early release of calcium from intracellular stores and subsequent influx of extracellular calcium, consistent with SHP-1 participation. Because exocytosis is complete within 2 min in mBMMCs, our studies establish a role for SHP-1 in the initial counter-regulatory cellular responses whereby gp49B1 immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs rapidly transmit inhibition of FcepsilonRI-mediated exocytosis.  (+info)

The vitronectin receptor and its associated CD47 molecule mediates proinflammatory cytokine synthesis in human monocytes by interaction with soluble CD23. (2/1533)

The vitronectin receptor, alphavbeta3 integrin, plays an important role in tumor cell invasion, angiogenesis, and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. CD47, a member of the multispan transmembrane receptor family, physically and functionally associates with vitronectin receptor (VnR). Although vitronectin (Vn) is not a ligand of CD47, anti-CD47 and beta3 mAbs suppress Vn, but not fibronectin (Fn) binding and function. Here, we show that anti-CD47, anti-beta3 mAb and Vn, but not Fn, inhibit sCD23-mediated proinflammatory function (TNF-alpha, IL-12, and IFN-gamma release). Surprisingly, anti-CD47 and beta3 mAbs do not block sCD23 binding to alphav+beta3+ T cell lines, whereas Vn and an alphav mAb (clone AMF7) do inhibit sCD23 binding, suggesting the VnR complex may be a functional receptor for sCD23. sCD23 directly binds alphav+beta3+/CD47(-) cell lines, but coexpression of CD47 increases binding. Moreover, sCD23 binds purified alphav protein and a single human alphav chain CHO transfectant. We conclude that the VnR and its associated CD47 molecule may function as a novel receptor for sCD23 to mediate its proinflammatory activity and, as such, may be involved in the inflammatory process of the immune response.  (+info)

Terreic acid, a quinone epoxide inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase. (3/1533)

Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) plays pivotal roles in mast cell activation as well as in B cell development. Btk mutations lead to severe impairments in proinflammatory cytokine production induced by cross-linking of high-affinity IgE receptor on mast cells. By using an in vitro assay to measure the activity that blocks the interaction between protein kinase C and the pleckstrin homology domain of Btk, terreic acid (TA) was identified and characterized in this study. This quinone epoxide specifically inhibited the enzymatic activity of Btk in mast cells and cell-free assays. TA faithfully recapitulated the phenotypic defects of btk mutant mast cells in high-affinity IgE receptor-stimulated wild-type mast cells without affecting the enzymatic activities and expressions of many other signaling molecules, including those of protein kinase C. Therefore, this study confirmed the important roles of Btk in mast cell functions and showed the usefulness of TA in probing into the functions of Btk in mast cells and other immune cell systems. Another insight obtained from this study is that the screening method used to identify TA is a useful approach to finding more efficacious Btk inhibitors.  (+info)

Predictive value of CD19 measurements for bacterial infections in children infected with human immunodeficiency virus. (4/1533)

We investigated the predictive value of CD19 cell percentages (CD19%) for times to bacterial infections, using data from six pediatric AIDS Clinical Trials Group protocols and adjusting for other potentially prognostic variables, such as CD4%, CD8%, immunoglobulin (IgA) level, lymphocyte count, prior infections, prior zidovudine treatment, and age. In addition, we explored the combined effects of CD19% and IgG level in predicting time to infection. We found that a low CD19% is associated with a nonsignificant 1.2-fold increase in hazard of bacterial infection (95% confidence interval: 0.97, 1.49). In contrast, a high IgG level is associated with a nonsignificant 0.87-fold decrease in hazard of infection (95% confidence interval: 0.68, 1.12). CD4% was more prognostic of time to bacterial infection than CD19% or IgG level. Low CD19% and high IgG levels together lead to a significant (P < 0. 01) 0.50-fold decrease in hazard (95% confidence interval: 0.35, 0. 73) relative to low CD19% and low IgG levels. Similarly, in a model involving assay result changes (from baseline to 6 months) as well as baseline values, the effect of CD19% by itself is reversed from its effect in conjunction with IgG. In this model, CD19% that are increasing and high are associated with decreases in hazard of infection (P < 0.01), while increasing CD19% and increasing IgG levels are associated with significant (at the P = 0.01 level) fourfold increases in hazard of infection relative to stable CD19% and decreasing, stable, or increasing IgG levels. Our data suggest that CD19%, in conjunction with IgG level, provides a useful prognostic tool for bacterial infections. It is highly likely that T-helper function impacts on B-cell function; thus, inclusion of CD4% in such analyses may greatly enhance the assessment of risk for bacterial infection.  (+info)

Fc receptor beta subunit is required for full activation of mast cells through Fc receptor engagement. (5/1533)

The high-affinity IgE receptor (Fc epsilonRI) and the low-affinity IgG receptor (Fc gammaRIII) on mast cells are the key molecules involved in triggering the allergic reaction. These receptors share the common beta subunit (FcRbeta) which contains an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif and transduces the signals of these receptors' aggregation. In rodents, FcRbeta is essential for the cell surface expression of the Fc epsilonRI. In humans, the FcRbeta gene was reported to be one of the candidate genes causing atopic diseases. However, the role of FcRbeta in vivo still remains ambiguous. To elucidate the functions of FcRbeta, we developed the mice lacking FcRbeta [FcRbeta(-/-)]. The FcRbeta(-/-) mice lacked the expression of the Fc epsilonRI on mast cells and IgE-mediated passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) was not induced in FcRbeta(-/-) mice as was expected. In these mice, the expression of IgG receptors on mast cells was augmented but the IgG-mediated PCA reaction was attenuated. Although with bone marrow-derived cultured mast cells from FcRbeta(-/-), adhesion to fibronectin and Ca2+ flux upon aggregation of IgG receptors were enhanced, mast cells co-cultured with 3T3 fibroblasts exhibited impaired degranulation on receptor aggregation. These observations indicate that FcRbeta accelerates the degranulation of mature mast cells via the IgG receptor in connective tissues.  (+info)

Affinity modulation of very late antigen-5 through phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase in mast cells. (6/1533)

Adhesiveness of integrins is up-regulated rapidly by a number of molecules, including growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, and other cell surface receptors, through a mechanism termed inside-out signaling. The inside-out signaling pathways are thought to alter integrin affinity for ligand, or cell surface distribution of integrin by diffusion/clustering. However, it remains to be clarified whether any physiologically relevant agonists induce a rapid change in the affinity of beta1 integrins and how ligand-binding affinity is modulated upon stimulation. In this study, we reported that affinity of beta1 integrin very late Ag-5 (VLA-5) for fibronectin was rapidly increased in bone marrow-derived mast cells by Ag cross-linking of FcepsilonRI. Ligand-binding affinity of VLA-5 was also augmented by receptor tyrosine kinases when the phospholipase Cgamma-1/protein kinase C pathway was inhibited. Wortmannin suppressed induction of the high affinity state VLA-5 in either case. Conversely, introduction of a constitutively active p110 subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase) increased the binding affinity for fibronectin. Failure of a constitutively active Akt to stimulate adhesion suggested that the affinity modulation mechanisms mediated by PI 3-kinase are distinct from the mechanisms to control growth and apoptosis by PI 3-kinase. Taken together, our findings demonstrated that the increase of affinity of VLA-5 was induced by physiologically relevant stimuli and PI 3-kinase was a critical affinity modulator of VLA-5.  (+info)

Differential roles of N- and C-terminal immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs during inhibition of cell activation by killer cell inhibitory receptors. (7/1533)

Killer cell inhibitory receptors (KIRs) inhibit NK and T cell cytotoxicity when recognizing MHC class I molecules on target cells. They possess two tandem intracytoplasmic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs (ITIMs) that, when phosphorylated, each bind to the two Src homology 2 domain-bearing protein tyrosine phosphatases SHP-1 and SHP-2 in vitro. Using chimeric receptors having an intact intracytoplasmic KIR domain bearing both ITIMs (N + C-KIR), a deleted domain containing the N-terminal ITIM only (N-KIR), or a deleted domain containing the C-terminal ITIM only (C-KIR), we examined the respective contributions of the two ITIMs in the inhibition of cell activation in two experimental models (a rat mast cell and a mouse B cell line) that have been widely used to analyze KIR functions. We found that the two KIR ITIMs play distinct roles. When coaggregated with immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif-bearing receptors such as high-affinity IgE receptors or B cell receptors, the N + C-KIR and the N-KIR chimeras, but not the C-KIR chimera, inhibited mast cell and B cell activation, became tyrosyl-phosphorylated, and recruited phosphatases in vivo. The N + C-KIR chimera recruited SHP-1 as expected, but also SHP-2. Surprisingly, the N-KIR chimera failed to recruit SHP-1; however, it did recruit SHP-2. Consequently, the N-terminal ITIM is sufficient to recruit SHP-2 and to inhibit cell activation, whereas the N-terminal and the C-terminal ITIMs are both necessary to recruit SHP-1. The two KIR ITIMs, therefore, are neither mandatory for inhibition nor redundant. Rather than simply amplifying inhibitory signals, they differentially contribute to the recruitment of distinct phosphatases that may cooperate to inhibit cell activation.  (+info)

Clinico-biological implications of increased serum levels of interleukin-8 in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. (8/1533)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Constitutive cellular expression and serum release of biologically active interleukin-8 (IL-8) has been reported in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Given the autocrine role played by IL-8 in the process of cell accumulation characteristic of this disease we tried to investigate clinico-biological implications of increased serum levels of this cytokine in an unselected series of B-cell CLL patients. DESIGN AND METHODS: Serum levels of IL-8 were determined at the time of diagnosis in 58 previously untreated B-CLL patients using an immunoenzyme assay. Results were correlated with main clinico-hematologic features as well as with the risk of disease progression. Finally, we looked for associations between IL-8 and molecules directly involved in apoptosis, such as intracellular bcl-2 and soluble APO-1/Fas. RESULTS: Increased serum levels of IL-8 were found in 15 out of 58 (25.8%) B-cell CLL patients. Serum levels of IL-8 did not reflect clinico-biological features representative of tumor mass such as clinical stage, histopathologic pattern of bone marrow (BM) involvement, b2-microglobulin, sCD23 and sCD27 titers. Interestingly, circulating levels of IL-8 paralleled those of intracellular bcl-2 (r = 0.522; p = 0.01), thus confirming that the antiapoptotic effect of IL-8 can be exerted through a bcl-2 dependent pathway. Levels of IL-8 did not match those of soluble Apo-1/Fas (r = -0.013; p = 0.943). Finally, stage A patients with levels of IL-8 above the median value (i.e. 4.5 pg/mL) were more likely to progress to a more advanced clinical stage than those with levels below the median value (p < 0.05). INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: IL-8 is an interesting marker in B-cell CLL, closely involved in the pathogenesis of disease. Furthermore, it is useful for predicting the pace of disease progression in early clinical stages.  (+info)

The discovery that the high affinity IgE receptor (Fc epsilon RI) is expressed on APCs of patients with atopic diseases raised the possibility that the functional importance of Fc epsilon RI in the pathogenesis of atopy may extend beyond its role in type I allergic reactions. Here we show that, following removal of in vivo-bound IgE by lactic acid treatment, targeting of allergens to monocytes by Ag-specific IgE critically depends on Fc epsilon RI expression. Even more importantly, lactic acid-treated, monocyte-enriched PBMCs present allergen to T cells 100- to 1000-fold more effectively if the allergen has been targeted to Fc epsilon RI on these cells via allergen-specific IgE. This mechanism may critically lower the atopic individuals threshold to mount allergen-specific T cell responses capable of promoting IgE production and delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions. ...
The dendritic cell (DC) lineage encompasses a diverse population of cells with unique subtype-specific functions. In peripheral blood, four DC subsets have been identified based on their distinct expression of CD1c, CD141, CD16, and CD123, and these subpopulations exhibit functional properties in immune responses. However, their respective roles in allergic diseases, such as rhinitis, are unclear. In this study, we have performed comparative assessments of DC subset frequencies and investigated their Fc epsilon RI expression levels in patients with allergic rhinitis. We demonstrate that the frequencies of CD1c(+) and CD141(+) DCs are elevated in grass pollen-allergic subjects compared with healthy controls, irrespectively of allergen stimulation. Among the DC subsets, CD1c(+) DCs expressed the highest levels of Fc epsilon RI mRNA, and a large proportion expressed surface Fc epsilon RI. Furthermore, the Fc epsilon RI expression levels were augmented upon allergen challenge. Thus our data suggest ...

Rabinowich H., Manciulea M., Metes D., Sulica A., Herberman R.B., Corey S.J., Whiteside T.L.. We recently reported that Fc mu R on NK cells is a signal transducing protein that stimulates a rapid increase in the level of cytoplasmic free calcium upon binding of IgM. This study was designed to examine signal transduction via the Fc mu R on NK cells and to characterize intracellular second messengers activated by IgM. Immunoprecipitation of IgM-bound Fc mu R by IgM-specific Ab coimmunoprecipitated the zeta- and Fc epsilon RI gamma-chains. Furthermore, engagement and clustering of Fc mu R by polyclonal IgM induced tyrosine phosphorylation of the zeta- and Fc epsilon RI gamma-chains, indicating their functional association with the Fc mu R-induced signal transduction cascade. Ligand-induced clustering of the Fc mu R also induced activity of src family kinases, Lck, Fyn, Lyn, and Src, as well as their physical interaction with the receptor. Triggering via Fc mu R also induced the activity of Syk and ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the β chain of the high affinity IgE receptor on the development of the atopic phenotype, as postulated by Cookson et al.8 9 11 In order to make the comparison more valuable, we have chosen the same phenotypes for the study as the group from Oxford, we used the same microsatellite probes for linkage analysis, and checked for the same polymorphisms. We studied two populations, one recruited through a population based study and the other through our outpatient department. Thus, the much higher number of clinically affected children in the second population (45.8% versus 5.4%) was expected. Assuming that atopy represents a genetically heterogeneous disease, it might well be associated with a different set of genes involved or a different degree of involvement of each gene in our populations.. We could not find definite evidence for involvement of the the β chain of the high affinity IgE receptor on enhanced IgE responsiveness in a cognate ...

Antigenic relationships between the low affinity Fc epsilon R present on murine B and T lymphocytes were studied. A rat mAb (B3B4) and two polyclonal antisera produced by immunizing with the murine B lymphocyte Fc epsilon RII were examined for their ability to inhibit binding of IgE to murine B or T lymphocytes, using an IgE-specific rosette assay. One polyclonal antiserum (goat-anti-mouse Fc epsilon R) inhibited binding of IgE to both B and T lymphocytes, whereas another polyclonal antiserum (rabbit-anti-mouse Fc epsilon R) and the rat mAb inhibited the binding of IgE to B lymphocytes but did not influence the binding of IgE to T lymphocytes. When lymphocytes were surface labeled with 125I, 49-kDa and 38-kDa IgE-binding proteins were immunoprecipitated from B lymphocyte lysates by B3B4 and from B and T lymphocyte lysates by the goat antiserum. Taken together, these results suggest that the Fc epsilon R present on murine B and T lymphocytes are structurally related receptors that share some, but ...
Allergen immunotherapy is effective in patients with IgE-dependent allergic rhinitis and asthma. When immunotherapy is given continuously for 3 years, there is persistent clinical benefit for several years after its discontinuation. This disease-modifying effect is both antigen-specific and antigen-driven. Clinical improvement is accompanied by decreases in numbers of effector cells in target organs, including mast cells, basophils, eosinophils, and type 2 innate lymphoid cells. Immunotherapy results in the production of blocking IgG/IgG4 antibodies that can inhibit IgE-dependent activation mediated through both high-affinity IgE receptors (FcεRI) on mast cells and basophils and low-affinity IgE receptors (FcεRII) on B cells ...

Talizumab (TNX-901) is a humanized monoclonal antibody that was under development by Tanox in Houston, Texas as a new-concept therapeutic for allergic diseases. The unique anti-IgE antibody was designed to target immunoglobulin E (IgE) and IgE-expressing B lymphocytes specifically, without binding to IgE already bound by the high affinity IgE receptors on mast cells and basophils. Talizumab was tested in clinical trials at National Jewish Medical and Research Center and other medical centers and allergy clinics across the U. S. and shown to be able to prevent allergic reactions to accidental exposure to peanuts, which is contained in many kinds of foods. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fast-tracked TNX-901. A drug is given a fast-track status if it meets a medical need not currently being met by any medication. TNX-901 was developed by Houston-based Tanox, started by two biomedical scientists, Nancy T.

Asthma is a chronic disease, characterized by airway inflammation, airflow limitation, hyper-reactivity and airway remodeling. It is believed that asthma is caused by the interaction between genetic and environmental factors. The prevalence of allergic diseases, including asthma, has increased worldwide during the past two decades. Although the precise reasons that have caused this increase remain unknown, dietary change is thought to be one of the environmental factors. Flavonoids, which are polyphenolic plant secondary metabolites ubiquitously present in vegetables, fruits and beverages, possess antioxidant and anti-allergic traits, as well as immune-modulating activities. Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants and anti-allergic nutrients that inhibit the release of chemical mediators, synthesis of Th2 type cytokines, such as interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13, and CD40 ligand expression by high-affinity immunoglobulin E (IgE) receptor-expressing cells, such as mast cells and basophils. They also inhibit IL-4
The allergic response involves the binding of allergen to receptor-bound IgE followed by cell activation and the release of mediators responsible for the manifestations of allergy. The IgE-receptor, a tetramer composed of an alpha, beta, and 2 disulfide-linked gamma chains, is found on the surface of mast cells and basophils. This gene encodes the beta subunit of the high affinity IgE receptor which is a member of the membrane-spanning 4A gene family. Members of this nascent protein family are characterized by common structural features and similar intron/exon splice boundaries and display unique expression patterns among hematopoietic cells and nonlymphoid tissues. This family member is localized to 11q12, among a cluster of membrane-spanning 4A gene family members. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct proteins. Additional transcript variants have been described but require experimental validation. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012 ...

The receptor is composed of one α-, one β-, and two disulphide-linked γ-chains, of which the α subunit binds IgE1. FcεRIα is expressed on mast and basophil cells, is upregulated in the presence of IgE, and is found on a subset of blood dendritic cells. The FcεRI complex plays an important role in triggering IgE-mediated allergic reactions.Additional information: Clone REA758 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors. | Principat dAndorra
Wortmannin inhibited phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (P13-kinase) and Fc epsilon RI-mediated histamine secretion in RBL-2H3 cells to a similar degree, with IC50 values of 3 and 2 nM, respectively. Although P13-kinase is an acknowledged regulator of intracellular trafficking and secretion, wortmannin has proved to be a difficult drug to use in assessing the role of P13-kinase because it inhibits another important enzyme, myosin light-chain kinase (MLCK; IC50 = 200 nM). In the present study we synthesized a unique derivative of wortmannin, O-acetyl-delta 16-wortmannin-17-ol (KT7692), that has an inhibitory potency against PI3-kinase one-hundredth that of wortmannin, but retains a similar potency to wortmannin against MLCK. Histamine secretion was influenced 100-fold more by wortmannin than by KT7692.2-(4-Morpholinyl)-8-phenyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one (LY294002), a structurally different PI3-kinase inhibitor from wortmannin, inhibited PI3-kinase with an IC50 of 2 microM but had little effect on MLCK ...

BACKGROUND: In asthma and other allergic disorders, the activation of mast cells by IgE and antigen induces the cells to release histamine and other mediators of inflammation, as well as to produce certain cytokines and chemokines. To search for new mast cell products, we used complementary DNA microarrays to analyze gene expression in human umbilical cord blood-derived mast cells stimulated via the high-affinity IgE receptor (Fc(epsilon)RI).. RESULTS: One to two hours after Fc(epsilon)RI-dependent stimulation, more than 2,400 genes (about half of which are of unknown function) exhibited 2-200 fold changes in expression. The transcriptional program included changes in the expression of IL-11 and at least 30 other cytokines and chemokines. Human mast cells secreted 130-529 pg of IL-11/106 cells by 6 h after stimulation with anti-IgE.. CONCLUSION: Our initial analysis of the transcriptional program induced in in vitro-derived human mast cells stimulated via the Fc(epsilon)RI has identified many ...

Crosslinking of Fc epsilon RI on rat basophilic leukemia (RBL 2H3) cells leads to an increase in Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase activity. This increase in Ptdlns 4-kinase activity is strongly correlated with its tyrosyl phosphorylation state. Characterization of the enzyme activity in anti phosphotyrosine immunoprecipitates suggests it as a type II Ptdlns 4-kinase. Membrane cholesterol depletion studies showed a reduction in type II Ptdlns 4-kinase activity suggesting that lipid rafts play an important role in activation of the enzyme. The enzyme activity was inhibited by resveratrol. In situ inhibition of type II Ptdlns 4-kinase activity showed a reduction in beta-hexosaminidase release upon Fc epsilon RI cross-linking. These studies suggest that a type II Ptdlns 4-kinase is an integral component of Fc epsilon RI mediated signal transduction mechanisms. (c) ...
Exposure to monomeric IgE in vitro markedly upregulated the ability of mature mouse peritoneal mast cells or mouse BMCMCs or cloned mast cells to bind IgE. Two separate lines of evidence indicate that this response largely, if not entirely, reflected the increased surface expression of FcεRI. First, while mouse mast cells also express FcγRII/ III ((17), (18)), which can bind IgE immune complexes ((18)), virtually all of the binding of monomeric IgE to mouse mast cells that is detectable under the conditions used in our experiments reflects binding of the ligand to a single class of high affinity binding sites, i.e., FcεRI ((18)). Second, we used anti-IgE to immunoprecipitate surface-bound IgE, and associated IgE receptors, from lysates of BMCMCs that had been first incubated with or without IgE at 5 μg/ml for 21 h and then exposed briefly to excess IgE just before recovery for flow cytometry and Western blot analysis. We found that, in comparison to aliquots of the same mast cell population ...
The aggregation of high-affinity immunoglobulin E (IgE) receptors (FcRI) on mast cells is a crucial event in the initiation of an allergic reaction. in gene manifestation, and the launch of inflammatory mediators, adding to late-phase and acute allergic responses [1-3]. FcRI includes a tetrameric proteins complicated, the IgE-binding amplifying string, a signalling string, and two stores [4]. The and subunits from the FcRI each consist of an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif (ITAM), which is definitely phosphorylated upon FcRI aggregation and which is definitely both necessary and adequate for receptor-induced signal transduction [5]. Mast cells also communicate additional Fc receptors, either constitutively or upon activation; among these, FcRI (CD64), FcRIIB (CD32), and FcRIII (CD16) are receptors for immunoglobulin G (IgG). FcRI (high-affinity IgG Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate supplier receptor) and FcRIII (low-affinity IgG receptor) are activating receptors, both comprising ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Progress in allergy signal research on mast cells. T2 - Signal regulation of multiple mast cell responses through FcεRI. AU - Yamasaki, Shou. AU - Saito, Takashi. PY - 2008/4/8. Y1 - 2008/4/8. N2 - The crosslinking of FcεRI by IgE and antigen (Ag) on mast cells initiates activation cascades that lead to allergic responses. Although it was thought that IgE binding to FcεRI is a passive sensitization, recent reports suggest that IgE actively promotes mast cell survival in the absence of Ag. However, it is largely unknown how these distinct responses are delivered through the same receptor, FcεRI, depending on the types of stimli. As an underlying molecular mechanism for the generation of diverse responses through FcεRI, we found that the quantity and the duration of the signal through the FcεRI γ chain (FcRγ) determine different mast cell responses. Furthermore, FcRγ-mediated sustained Erk activation is critical for IgE-induced mast cell survival through autocrine ...
Urticaria is a group of disorders that share a distinct skin reaction pattern, namely the occurrence of itchy wheals anywhere on the skin. Wheals are short-lived elevated erythematous lesions ranging from a few millimetres to several centimetres in diameter and can become confluent. The itching can be pricking or burning and is usually worse in the evening or night time [1]. Nearly half of the patients report sleep disturbances [2]. Typically, the lesions are rubbed and not scratched; therefore, usually excoriated skin is not a consequence of urticaria. Itchy wheals and also angioedema, which occur in about half of the patients from time to time, are the result of the degranulation of mast cells and basophils with release of mediators, predominantly histamine. Possible direct and indirect mechanisms by which degranulation is induced include autoreactivity including autoimmunity mediated by functional autoantibodies directed against the high affinity IgE receptor or IgE, infections (e. g. with ...

This entry includes B-lymphocyte antigen CD20 and other members of the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A), and closely related TMEM176 proteins [(PUBMED:20186339), (PUBMED:23874341)]. It also includes sarcospan and some uncharacterised proteins. The MS4A family includes the B-cell-specific antigen CD20, hematopoietic-cell-specific protein HTm4, high affinity IgE receptor beta chain (FceRIbeta), and related proteins [(PUBMED:11245982)]. Members of this family have four putative transmembrane segments and are predominantly expressed in hematopoietic cells, with important roles in immunity [(PUBMED:11401424)].. Sarcospan is a transmembrane component of dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DGC), a complex that spans the muscle plasma membrane and forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix. Sarcospan preferentially associates with the sarcoglycan subcomplex of the DGC. Loss of the sarcoglycan complex and sarcospan alone is sufficient to cause muscular ...
Allergic asthma is dependent on an IgE response controlled by T and B lymphocytes and activated by the interaction of antigen with mast cell-bound IgE molecules. After taking up an immunogen, these cells migrate to the local lymph nodes where they present the material to T cell receptors. This leads to the differentiation of the cell to a TH2 subset and also causes B lymphocytes to switch their antibody production from IgG and IgM to IgE. Once synthesized and released by B cells, IgE circulates in the blood until it attaches to high-affinity receptors on mast cells and low-affinity receptors on basophils. Immune mechanisms appear to be causally related to the development of asthma in 25 to 35% of all cases. The pathophysiologic hallmark of asthma is a reduction in airway diameter brought about by contraction of smooth muscle, vascular congestion, edema of the bronchial wall, and thick, tenacious secretions. All these can cause to airway remodeling, which is associated with structural changes due ...
It remains unknown why only some allergic individuals develop asthma. Previous work has shown that allergic asthmatics (AA) recruit more pathogenic Th2 effector cells into the airway after allergen challenge compared to allergic controls (AC). We hypothesized that airway dendritic cells (DC) regulate this effector response and drive the asthma phenotype. We used segmental allergen challenge (SAC) to compare the airway response to allergen in AA (n=16) and AC (n=14). We characterized airway DC with flow cytometry and measured airway cytokines and IgE. Airway DC were sorted for RNA sequencing (n=4 per group). While AA and AC had similar baseline numbers of airway CD141+DC, AA had a higher percentage expressing the high-affinity IgE receptor (FcεRI). After SAC, CD141+DC only increased in AC. AA had higher CCL19 and CCL20 levels, and endobronchial brushings suggested mucosal accumulation of CD141+DC after SAC in AA compared to AC. AA also had higher airway levels of cytokines that promote tertiary ...

MS4A2 of 244 aas and 4 TMSs. High affinity receptor that binds to the Fc region of immunoglobulins epsilon. Aggregation of Fc epsilon receptor (FCERI) by multivalent antigens is required for the full mast cell response, including the release of preformed mediators (such as histamine) by degranulation and de novo production of lipid mediators and cytokines (Penhallow et al. 1995). Also mediates the secretion of important lymphokines. Binding of allergen to receptor-bound IgE leads to cell activation and the release of mediators responsible for the manifestations of allergy. ...
BTK plays a crucial role in B cell maturation as well as mast cell activation through the high-affinity IgE receptor.[citation needed] Btk contains a PH domain that binds phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate (PIP3). PIP3 binding induces Btk to phosphorylate phospholipase C, which in turn hydrolyzes PIP2, a phosphatidylinositol, into two second messengers, inositol triphosphate (IP3) and diacylglycerol (DAG), which then go on to modulate the activity of downstream proteins during B-cell signalling.[citation needed] ...
[ChEMBL Target Description] ID:CHEMBL5842, Name:Low affinity immunoglobulin gamma Fc region receptor III-B, Description:, Synonyms:
TY - JOUR. T1 - BLT2 is upregulated in allergen-stimulated mast cells and mediates the synthesis of Th2 cytokines. AU - Cho, Kyung Jin. AU - Seo, Ji Min. AU - Lee, Min-Goo. AU - Kim, Jae-Hong. PY - 2010/11/15. Y1 - 2010/11/15. N2 - Mast cells are effector cells that mediate the allergic response through Ag stimulation of IgE bound to FcεRI. In allergic reactions, cross-linking of the surface receptors for IgE on mast cells results in the synthesis of Th2 cytokines such as IL-4 and IL-13, which are critical for the initiation and progression of the allergic response. Despite the important roles of these cytokines, the signaling mechanism by which Ag stimulation mediates the production of IL-4 and IL-13 in mast cells is not clearly understood. In the present study, we found that Ag-stimulated bone marrow-derived mast cells (BMMCs) highly upregulated the expression of BLT2, a leukotriene B 4 receptor, and that blockade of BLT2 with the specific antagonist LY255283 or small interfering RNA ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of two major allergic pathways - IgE and non-IgE antibody mediated food allergy reaction (FAR) and lung inflammation disease using crustacean extracts. Although IgE antibody mediated food allergy reaction (IFAR) are defined as major mechanism in the past several decades, proteases from different sources acting similar to allergens as well as the long-term inflammatory stimulus through activation of protease activation receptors (PARs) are important. This opens new insight into non-IgE antibody mediated food allergy (NFAR) due to its dual effects. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the interactions of these two pathways for a better understanding of the currently poor correlation between clinical symptoms and IgE specific diagnostics.. The current studies employed a humanized rat basophilic leukemia (RBL) cell line as well as a human lung epithelial cell line (A549) due to the presence of IgE receptors and PARs. Flow cytometric (FACS) and ...

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.. ...
The function of the mast cell is quite diverse, as they are involved in allergic reactions, innate and acquired immunity, inflammation, tumours, bacterial infections, autoimmunity and tissue repair. [33] Their functional diversity can be attributed to the vast range of biologically active substances that they can produce, such as heparin, tryptase and chymase, serotonin and dopamine to name a few. [34] Mast cells are important cells in innate and acquired immunity as they are involved in early recognition of pathogens. [35] In regards to the immune system, they play an important role in recruiting other immune cells and controlling the function of immune cells such as T and B lymphocytes. For mast cells to begin to serve a function, they must first become activated. Mast cells become activated in many ways, they can be directly stimulated by pathogens through pattern recognition receptors (PRR), as well as stimulation via the immunoglobulin E (IgE) receptor FcεRI. This eventually leads to ...
Recombinant Human immunoglobulin epsilon receptor subunit alpha (FCER1A) Protein, Fc-epsilon RI-alpha (FcERI), produced in human 293 cells (HEK293)
IgE is a highly elusive antibody class, yet a tremendously powerful elicitor of immune reactions. Despite huge efforts spent on the characterization and understanding of the IgE system many questions remain either unanswered or only marginally addressed. One above all relates to the role of IgE. A common doubt is based on whether IgE mode of action should only be relegated to anti-parasite immunity and allergic manifestations. In search for a hidden role of IgE, reports from several laboratories are described herein in which a natural IgE link to cancer or the experimental redirection of IgE against cancer have been investigated. Epidemiological and investigational studies are trying to elucidate a possible direct intervention of endogenous IgE against cancer, raising thus far no definitive evidence. Conversely, experimental approaches implementing several strategies and engineered IgE formats built up a series of convincing results indicating that cancer might be tackled by the effector functions of
