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.


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)
