Enzymatically dispersed human lung parenchymal cells were fractionated according to size by countercurrent centrifugation elutriation. Human lung mast cells eluted throughout the procedure indicating heterogeneity of mast cell diameters. In seven individual lung elutriations, the mean histamine content ranged from 2.5 +/- 0.5 pg/mast cell for the smallest diameter mast cells (8-10 microns) to 10 +/- 2.5 pg/mast cell for the largest (16-20 microns). Intermediate sized mast cells had… CONTINUE READING
