BACKGROUND Lung mast cells are stereotypically divided into connective tissue (MC(TC)) and mucosal (MC(T)) mast cells. This study tests the hypothesis that each of these subtypes can be divided further into site-specific populations created by the microenvironment within each anatomical lung compartment. METHODS Surgical resections and bronchial and transbronchial biopsies from non-smoking individuals were obtained to study mast cells under non-inflamed conditions. Morphometric and molecular… CONTINUE READING
