Mast Cells in the Skin: Defenders of Integrity or Offenders in Inflammation?
Both beneficial and detrimental functions of skin MCs are reviewed, from skin barrier integrity via host defense mechanisms to MC-driven inflammatory skin disorders, and the importance of IgE-independent pathways of MC activation and their role in sustained chronic skin inflammation and disease exacerbation is emphasized.
Responses of Mast Cells to Pathogens: Beneficial and Detrimental Roles
The role of MCs in a dysregulated host response that can increase morbidity and mortality is reviewed and discussed, highlighting the complexity ofMCs biology in the context of host-pathogen interactions.
Mast Cells Modulate Antigen-Specific CD8+ T Cell Activation During LCMV Infection
It is reported that MCs are essential for the activation and expansion of virus-specific CD8+ T cells and dendritic cell (DC) activation was impaired upon LCMV infection, and a better understanding of the impact of MCs on CD8- T cell responses is mandatory to improve antiviral immune responses.
Signal Transduction Pathways Activated by Innate Immunity in Mast Cells: Translating Sensing of Changes into Specific Responses
Recent evidence regarding the main molecular elements and signaling pathways connecting the innate immune receptors and hypoxic microenvironment to cytokine synthesis and the secretion of soluble or exosome-contained mediators in mast cell-driven chronic inflammation is reviewed.
Mast Cell Functions Linking Innate Sensing to Adaptive Immunity
A summary of recent findings that explain how MCs act as a link between the innate and adaptive immunity, all the way from sensing inflammatory insult to orchestrating the final outcome of the immune response is provided.
Cryptococcus neoformans Induces MCP-1 Release and Delays the Death of Human Mast Cells
It is found that mast cells (MCs) recognize C. neoformans and release inflammatory mediators such as tryptase and cytokines and taken together, MCs might have important contributions to fungal clearance during early stages of cryptocococis where these cells regulate recruitment of monocytes to mucosal tissues.
IgE-activated mast cells enhance TLR4-mediated antigen-specific CD4+ T cell responses
This study examines the effects of specific mast cell activation in vivo on the initiation of an antigen-specific CD4+ T cell response and provides important new evidence to support the role of mast cells as mediators of the antigen- specific adaptive immune response.

This review highlights research demonstrating how dendritic cells influence allergic disease development, providing important mechanistic insights into current clinical management strategies as well as potential areas of focus for future development of novel therapeutic strategies.


Mast cells acquire MHCII from dendritic cells during skin inflammation
In vivo evidence is provided that migratory DCs execute targeted cell-to-cell interactions with stationary MCs before leaving the inflamed skin to draining lymph nodes, identifying an innate intercellular communication arming resident MCs with key DC functions that might contribute to the acute defense potential during critical periods of migration-based DC absence.
Mast cells augment adaptive immunity by orchestrating dendritic cell trafficking through infected tissues.
Mast cells are crucial for early inflammation, migration of Langerhans cells, and CTL responses following topical application of TLR7 ligand in mice.
It is demonstrated that the capacity to mount a peptide-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocyte response following transcutaneous immunization using imiquimod as adjuvant is severely impaired in mast-cell-deficient mice, demonstrating the potent versatility of alternatively activated mast cells at the interface of innate and adaptive immunity.
Mast cells promote Th1 and Th17 responses by modulating dendritic cell maturation and function
Mast cells (MCs) play an important role in the regulation of protective adaptive immune responses against pathogens. However, it is still unclear whether MCs promote such host defense responses via
Mast Cell-Derived Exosomes Induce Phenotypic and Functional Maturation of Dendritic Cells and Elicit Specific Immune Responses In Vivo1
This work demonstrates a heretofore unrecognized collaborative interaction between MCs and DCs leading to the elicitation of specific immune responses, including 60- and 70-kDa heat shock proteins.
Dendritic Cell Modulation by Mast Cells Controls the Th1/Th2 Balance in Responding T Cells1
By acting upon DC at sites of inflammation, mast cells play a critical role in determining the polarity of Ag-specific T cell responses in vivo.
Mast cells form antibody-dependent degranulatory synapse for dedicated secretion and defence.
It is shown that interaction of mast cells with antibody-targeted cells induces the polarized exocytosis of their granules resulting in a sustained exposure of effector enzymes at the cell-cell contact site, which is named the antibody-dependent degranulatory synapse (ADDS).
Mast Cells, Histamine, and IL-6 Regulate the Selective Influx of Dendritic Cell Subsets into an Inflamed Lymph Node
Novel opportunities for the selective mobilization of specific DC subsets to lymph nodes are provided and critical roles for both histamine and IL-6 are demonstrated in this process are demonstrated.
Mast cell-orchestrated immunity to pathogens
Recent studies using mast cell activators as effective vaccine adjuvants show the potential of harnessing these cells to confer protective immunity against microbial pathogens.
IgE-activated mast cells in combination with pro-inflammatory factors induce Th2-promoting dendritic cells.
It is suggested that the interaction between DCs and IgE-activated MCs in a pro-inflammatory or even T(h)1-prone environment is instrumental in maintaining and augmenting T( h)2 responses in allergy, and that disruption of the DC-MC interaction may constitute an effective strategy to treat ongoing allergic diseases.
