Characterization of purification-associated reduction in IgE-dependent histamine release from rat peritoneal mast cells


Histamine release from purified rat peritoneal mast cells (PMC) was examined and compared to that from a non-purified preparation (PEC). Both PEC and PMC released similar amounts of histamine upon stimulation with compound 48/80, calcium ionophore A23187 and substance P. In contrast, IgE-dependent histamine release from PMC caused by antigen, anti-IgE and… (More)
