The relationship between the IgE load on mast cells and their secretory capacity when challenged with anti-IgE was studied in peritoneal cells obtained from rats of three different strains, Hooded Lister (HL), Wistar Kyoto (WKY) and Sprague-Dawley (SD). IgE was determined cytofluorometrically after labelling with FITC-conjugated anti-IgE before and after the saturation of the IgE receptors to provide a measure of the surface expression of IgE receptors (number of receptors available for… CONTINUE READING
