Mast cells play a central role in the pathophysiology of asthma and related allergic conditions. Mast cell activation leads to the degranulation of preformed mediators such as histamine and the secretion of newly synthesised proinflammatory mediators such as leukotrienes and cytokines. Excess release of these mediators contributes to allergic disease states. An influx of extracellular Ca2+ is essential for mast cell mediator release. From the Ca2+ channels that mediate this influx, to the K… Expand
Mast Cell Mediators: Their Differential Release and the Secretory Pathways Involved
TLDR
This review summarizes the knowledge of MC mediators and will focus on what is known about the discriminatory release of these mediators dependent upon diverse stimuli, MC phenotypes, and species of origin, as well as on the intracellular synthesis, storage, and secretory processes involved. Expand
Calcium release-activated calcium modulator 1 as a therapeutic target in allergic skin diseases.
TLDR
It is concluded that ORAI1 could be a potential therapeutic target for allergic skin diseases because of its similarities in the activation and secretion of cytokines. Expand
In vitro exposure to Hymenoptera venom and constituents activates discrete ionotropic pathways in mast cells
TLDR
Single-cell calcium assays and immunofluorescence analysis show that there is heterogeneity of channel expression across the cell population, but this heterogeneity does not explain the apparent selectivity for specific channels in response to exposure to venom as a composite stimulus. Expand
Usefulness of targeting lymphocyte Kv1.3-channels in the treatment of respiratory diseases
TLDR
The novel therapeutic implications of targeting the lymphocyte Kv1.3-channels for the treatment of chronic or acute respiratory diseases, based on the findings obtained from recent in vivo and in vitro studies. Expand
Immunopharmacological modulation of mast cells.
TLDR
The development of pharmacologic agents based on this new wave of knowledge holds promise for the treatment of several mast cell-mediated disorders. Expand
The Effect of Statins through Mast Cells in the Pathophysiology of Atherosclerosis: a Review
Purpose of Review In this review, we discuss the evidence supporting the effects of statins on mast cells (MCs) in atherosclerosis and their molecular mechanism of action. Recent Findings Statins orExpand
Co-Stimulation of Purinergic P2X4 and Prostanoid EP3 Receptors Triggers Synergistic Degranulation in Murine Mast Cells
TLDR
Results suggest that P2X4R signaling enhances EP3R-mediated MC activation via a different mechanism to that involved in enhancing Ag-induced responses, and the cooperative effects of the common inflammatory mediators ATP and PGE2 on MCs may be involved in Ag-independent hypersensitivity in vivo. Expand
Jacareubin inhibits Fc&egr;RI‐induced extracellular calcium entry and production of reactive oxygen species required for anaphylactic degranulation of mast cells
TLDR
The data demonstrate that jacareubin is a potent natural compound able to inhibit anaphylactic degranualtion in mast cells by blunting Fc&egr;RI‐induced calcium flux needed for secretion of granule content, and suggest that xanthones could be efficient anti‐oxidant, antiallergic, and antiinflammatory molecules. Expand
Expression and modulation of S100A4 protein by human mast cells.
TLDR
The results suggest that S100A4 is also playing a role in the MC life cycle and functions, and downregulation of the S 100A4 protein resulted in MC growth inhibition, enhanced apoptosis and deregulation of M MP-1 and MMP-10 production. Expand
The antinociception of oxytocin on colonic hypersensitivity in rats was mediated by inhibition of mast cell degranulation via Ca2+-NOS pathway
TLDR
The findings strongly suggest that OT might exert the antinociception on colonic hypersensitivity through inhibition of mast cell degranulation via Ca2+-NOS pathway. Expand

P2 receptor-mediated signaling in mast cell biology
TLDR
The role of P2X and P2Y receptors in mast cell activation and effector functions is summarized and ATP functions as mast cell autocrine/paracrine factor and as messenger in intercellular communication between mast cells, nerves, and glia in the central nervous system. Expand
Functional Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin 7 Channels Are Critical for Human Mast Cell Survival
TLDR
HLMC and human mast cell lines express the nonselective cation channel TRPM7 whose presence is essential for cell survival, and this effect was not rescued by raising extracellular Mg2+. Expand
Essential function for the calcium sensor STIM1 in mast cell activation and anaphylactic responses
TLDR
It is shown that the Ca2+-binding endoplasmic reticulum protein STIM1 is critical to mast cell function and is key in promoting theCa2+ influx that is essential for FcεRI-mediated mast cell activation and anaphylaxis. Expand
Expression and functional characterization of CFTR in mast cells
TLDR
R reverse transcriptase‐polymerase chain reaction shows that rat‐cultured mast cells and peritoneal mast cells contain mRNA for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), an important chloride channel. Expand
Selective expression of potassium channels during mast cell differentiation.
TLDR
It is found that rat interleukin-3-dependent bone marrow-derived mast cells of the mucosal phenotype expressed two K+ conductances, neither of which is present in the prototype serosal mast cell from rat peritoneum, suggesting that activation of the outwardly rectifying K+ channel may regulate antigen-dependent functions of MMC. Expand
Increased IgE-dependent mast cell activation and anaphylactic responses in mice lacking the calcium-activated nonselective cation channel TRPM4
TLDR
It is shown that transient receptor potential TRPM4 proteins acted as calcium-activated nonselective cation channels and critically determined the driving force for Ca2+ influx in mast cells. Expand
Intercellular Ca2+ wave propagation involving positive feedback between CRAC channels and cysteinyl leukotrienes
TLDR
It is shown that activated mast cells release a paracrine signal that evokes Ca2+ signals in spatially separate resting mast cells, and a positivefeedback cascade involving CRAC channels and cysteinyl leukotrienes constitute a novel mechanism for sustaining mast cell activation. Expand
Resting and Activation-Dependent Ion Channels in Human Mast Cells1
TLDR
The whole-cell variant of the patch clamp technique is used to characterize for the first time macroscopic ion currents in purified human lung mast cells and human peripheral blood-derived mast cells at rest and following IgE-dependent activation. Expand
Cell-to-cell spread of calcium signals mediated by ATP receptors in mast cells
TLDR
It is reported that transient rises in [Ca2+]i initiated in an individual cell can spread from cell to cell in a wave-like pattern by means of a secreted intermediate, in the absence of gap-junctional communication. Expand
Ion channel gene expression in human lung, skin, and cord blood‐derived mast cells
TLDR
High‐density oligonucleotide probe arrays are used to characterize for the first time the profile of ion channel gene expression in human lung, skin, and cord blood‐derived mast cells and had little effect on IgE‐dependent activation, but distinct differences for some channels were observed between the different mast cell phenotypes.
