Peptides such as parathyroid hormone (PTH), somatostatin, and gastrin have been reported to stimulate mast cell mediator release. Preincubation of rat serosal mast cells with synthetic 1-34 bovine parathyroid hormone (1-34bPTH) significantly enhanced antigen-induced 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) release. Enhancement of 5-HT release by 1-34bPTH was dose… CONTINUE READING
