Summary: Mast cells are key elements of the immune system. These cells release a wide variety of pro‐inflammatory mediators which are responsible for the pathophysiology of many allergic diseases. Recent studies, however, have shown that mast cells have the capacity to modulate the host's innate immune response to gram negative bacteria by their ability to phagocytose bacteria, process and present bacterial antigens to T cells and recruit phagocytic help through the release of physiological… Expand
The role of mast cells in host defense and their subversion by bacterial pathogens.
TLDR
This newly discovered role for MCs involves the release of chemoattractants that recruit neutrophils and the direct phagocytosis and killing of opsonized bacteria. Expand
Regulation of mast cell-mediated innate immunity during early response to bacterial infection
TLDR
Studies directed at elucidating the molecular mechanisms associated with mast cell recognition of bacteria and subsequent events leading to mast cell mediator release revealed that GPI anchored CD48 molecule present on the cell surface of mast cells serves as a receptor for the bacterial adhesion molecule, FimH. Expand
Mast cells--key effector cells in immune responses.
TLDR
The key signals and effector mechanisms that have lately been identified for mast cell functions in these immune responses that go far beyond allergies and include the development of autoimmune disorders and peripheral tolerance are reviewed. Expand
Advances in the understanding of mast cell function
TLDR
The activation of mast cells independently of Immunoglobulin E can lead to the initiation of fast inflammatory reactions, which were shown to be life‐saving in murine models of bacterial infections. Expand
Mast Cells: Sentinels of Innate Skin Immunity
TLDR
As the main drivers of both type 1 hypersensitivity and inflammatory disorders, like rosacea, the mast cell has been studied as a target for many disease-altering therapies. Expand
Mast cells determine the magnitude of bacterial toxin‐induced skin inflammation
TLDR
The hypothesis that mast cells are critically involved in initiating and modulating optimal host responses to bacteria by either inflammatory or anti‐inflammatory effects, depending on the course of the host reaction induced by the pathogen is supported. Expand
Recognition Sites for Microbes and Components of the Immune System on Human Mast Cells: Relationship to CD Antigens and Implications for Host Defense
TLDR
An overview on MC antigens contributing to microbe recognition and targeting as an important element of natural host-defense is provided. Expand
The mast cell: an antenna of the microenvironment that directs the immune response
TLDR
Findings on the roles of MCs in innate and acquired immunity, on the molecular mechanism and signaling pathways, and on selective signals that induce discrete MC response and its ability to polarize adaptive‐immune response are summarized. Expand
Rapidly changing perspectives about mast cells at mucosal surfaces
TLDR
The role of MCs in inflammatory reactions in mucosal surfaces is focused on with particular emphasis on their role in respiratory and gastrointestinal inflammatory conditions. Expand
Mast cells and immunoregulation/immunomodulation.
Mast cells often represent one of the first cells of the immune system to interact with environmental antigens, invading pathogens or environmentally-derived toxins. Mast cells also can undergoExpand
