Mast cells in UV-B-induced immunosuppression.


Degranulating dermal mast cells in UV-B-irradiated skin have been implicated for many years in the mechanisms of irradiation erythema. There is now considerable evidence that dermal mast cells are important to the processes by which both UV-B radiation and cis-urocanic acid (cis-UCA) suppress immune responses to sensitizing antigens applied to non… (More)
