Mast cells induce upregulation of P-selectin and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 on carotid endothelial cells in a new in vitro model of mast cell to endothelial cell communication.

Abstract

It is suggested that mast cells contribute to cell recruitment in inflammation through the upregulation of endothelial adhesion molecules. P-selectin and intercellular adhesion molecule(ICAM)-1 are two key adhesion molecules that have been associated indirectly with mast cell activity. The canine C2 mastocytoma cell line and primary cultures of canine… (More)
