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
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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
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
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 ...

We hypothesized that the antiallergic action of heparin may be dependent on molecular weight and related to its nonanticoagulant properties. Therefore, in the present investigation we studied the effects of a nonanticoagulant fraction of heparin (LA-heparin) on antigen-induced bronchoconstriction, airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR), and mast-cell degranulation, and compared its antiallergic activity with that of a low molecular weight ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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

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).
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

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 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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

Told ya I wasnt making it up! When I was high histamine it was literally impossible to sleep. I would be up for days at a time. Very handy when I was a journalist working in war zones, but not so great when I have a 9am meeting to go through someones digital strategy. Generally when people tell me theyre very low histamine I ask how their sleep is. Its a great indicator of how youre doing diet-wise. Im not discounting stress, but we know that also causes mast cell degranulation too! Now while the studies I read on valerian took great pains to stress that its not a hypnotic which knocks you into sleep, its an anxiolytic that reduces stress, helping you drop off. Ever wondered why antihistamines make you sleepy? There are a number of reasons - among them is that histamine controls your cicadian rythm/wakefulness hormones, so taking an anti-histamine would naturally make you fall asleep. Given that we know antihistamines make us fat and can cause toxicity syndrome, exploring natural ...
Since the start of psychosomatic thinking, atopic disease was considered exemplary. discovered shoulder-to-shoulder with improved expression of recently emerging neuroendocrine tension mediators such as for example product P (SP) and nerve development factor that type up to third tension axis (neurotrophin neuropeptide axis: NNA). Jointly they are able to alter the inflammatory aswell as the neuroendocrine stress-response on many levels. In epidermis, the instant inflammatory response to tension consists of neuropeptide discharge and mast cell degranulation, in short neurogenic swelling. Systemically, antigen-presentation and TH2 cytokine bias are advertised under the influence of cortisol and neuropeptides. Imbalanced stress-responsiveness may consequently become at the core of exacerbated allergic disease and deserves re-evaluation of restorative options such as neutralization of SP-signaling by antagonists against its receptor NK1, cortisol treatment as supplementation and relaxation ...

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 ...
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.. ...
We are also evaluating whether the augmented vascular permeability, which has been identified in several types of inflammation, including settings that are characterized by piecemeal degranulation of mast cells or basophils, reflects enhanced formation and/or function of endothelial cell vesiculo-vacuolar organelles (VVOs), rather than transport through classical interendothelial cell gaps such as those that develop in postcapillary venules immediately after the administration of large amounts of histamine
