Immunocytochemistry using a monoclonal antibody against glycine receptors revealed that these receptors in cat retina are confined to the inner plexiform layer (IPL). The outer half of that layer showed strong patchy labelling with some indication of two bands corresponding to the on- and off-sublamina. High-affinity uptake of [3H]glycine followed by(More)
Helminthic infections, which are particularly common in the developing world, are associated with the accumulation of mucosal mast cells (MMCs) in the epithelial layer of the gut. Although intestinal parasite infection models argue that IL-18 plays a role in MMC differentiation and function, the direct effect of IL-18 on MMCs is still not well understood.(More)
Mast cells are rich sources of proteases, such as tryptases and chymases that control many physiological and pathological processes, for example vascular permeability, smooth muscle cell proliferation or extracellular matrix remodeling. Murine mucosal mast cells mature under the influence of TGF-beta and play a role in asthmatic and anti-helminthic immune(More)
