CD23/Fc epsilonRII, the low-affinity receptor for IgE, is a pluripotent molecule with pleiotropic effects on cell activation and proliferation, antigen presentation and IgE synthesis. Initial investigations have suggested that CD23 expression was restricted to B lymphocytes and macrophages, but a much wider cell distribution is now acknowledged. Despite experimental evidence suggesting that human eosinophils could express the low-affinity IgE receptor Fc epsilonRII/CD23 with biological… CONTINUE READING
