Inhibition of rBet v 1-induced basophil histamine release with specific immunotherapy -induced serum immunoglobulin G: no evidence that FcgammaRIIB signalling is important.


BACKGROUND Human basophils and mast cells express the low-affinity immunoglobulin (Ig)G receptor FcgammaRIIB. It has previously been shown in artificial model systems that cross-linking of the high-affinity IgE receptor FcepsilonRI and FcgammaRIIB leads to inhibition of FcepsilonRI signalling. OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to investigate… (More)
