SynopsisA selective stain for mast cells in tissue sections is presented. The procedure is based on the resistance to destaining with absolute ethanol-acetic acid of the complex acid mucopolysaccharide-Toluidine Blue reinforced with ferrioxamine B. 
Isolation of cardiac mast cells in experimental Trypanosoma cruzi infection.
TLDR
This work optimized the identification of cardiac and peritoneal mast cells and developed an enzymatic method for MC isolation using control and T. cruzi-infected mice and developed a highly efficient 60%/70% Percoll-graded protocol that enriched in, at least, 95% the population of cardiac MC.

Mast cell-derived mediators promote murine neutrophil effector functions.
TLDR
A previously underrated feature of mast cells is their ability to boost neutrophil effector functions in immune responses as well as spontaneous apoptosis of neutrophils is greatly diminished due to the ability ofmast cells to deliver antiapoptotic GM-CSF. Expand
9-Phenanthrol enhances the generation of an CD8+ T cell response following transcutaneous immunization with imiquimod in mice.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that a simple modification of an adjuvant formulation can yield superior results in experimental vaccination protocols by boosting critical steps leading to the generation of an efficient CTL response. Expand
Solitary neurofibroma of the palate mimicking mucocele: A rare case report
TLDR
An unusual case of solitary neurofibroma in the hard palate which clinically mimicked a mucocele is described. Expand
Mast Cells Down-Regulate CD4+CD25+ T Regulatory Cell Suppressor Function via Histamine H1 Receptor Interaction1
TLDR
It is suggested that histamine released as a result of mast cell activation by microbial products might cause a transient decrease in Treg cell suppressor function, thereby enhancing the development of protective immunity. Expand
Cardiomyocyte-Specific Overexpression of Human Stem Cell Factor Improves Cardiac Function and Survival After Myocardial Infarction in Mice
TLDR
Cardiomyocyte-specific overexpression of hSCF improves myocardial function and survival after MI and may result from increases in endothelial progenitor cell recruitment and neovascularization and decreases inMyocardial apoptosis and cardiac remodeling. Expand
Improving Cardiac Repair by Stem Cell Factor Post-Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
This book aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate. Expand

Microtest for mucopolysaccharides by means of toluidine blue: with special reference to hyaluronic acid.
A micromethod is presented for the detection of hyaluronic acid when as little as 0.5 µg. of material are present. The method is simple and applicable as well to some other mucopolysaccharides.

TLDR
The degree of sulphation and molecular weight of the saccharide polymer appears to be reduced with age in animals with either normal or diseased skin, but in the diseased animals the protein-polysaccharide interaction did not occur. Expand
Observations on a Highly Specific Method for the Histochemical Detection of Sulphated Mucopolysaccharides, and its Possible Mechanisms
TLDR
It is concluded that this is a highly specific method of staining sulphated mucopolysaccharides, depending upon the formation of a link by a metallic ion between the tissues and the dye, in the fashion of a true mordant. Expand

A method for the separation of acid mucopolysaccharides: its application to the isolation of heparin from the skin of rats.
TLDR
The present communication describes a procedure for quantitative separation of small quantities of hyaluronic acid, chondroitinsulfuric acids, and heparin and its application to a study of the mucopolysaccharides of skin. Expand

TLDR
Two ion association complexes are identified that are red in color, very soluble in organic solvents such as chloroform, ethanol, methanol, acetone and xylene and insoluble in water. Expand
An Approach to the Thermodynamics of Histological Dyeing, Illustrated by Experiments with Azure A
TLDR
Half-staining times and activation energies of staining with azure A increase in the order mucin, mast-cell granules, chromatin, RNA, and interstitial cartilage matrix, which is suggested that part of the high affinity of sulphate groups for basic dyes is due to an increase in entropy during staining, resulting from dispersion of a large hydration shell surrounding the sulphate group before attachment of the dye.
