Cardiac mast cell numbers increase significantly within 12 h following the creation of an aortocaval (AV) fistula in rats and play a central role in mediating adverse left ventricular remodeling. We studied whether this increase was related to maturation of resident immature mast cells. We measured percentages of immature and mature cardiac mast cells at 1, 2 and 7 days following AV-fistula or sham surgery and in non-surgical control rats using the alcian-blue safranin reaction. Relative to… CONTINUE READING
