Basophils and mast cells play important roles in host defense against parasitic infections and allergic responses. Several progenitor populations, either shared or specific, for basophils and/or mast cells have been identified, thus elucidating the developmental pathways of these cells. Multiple transcription factors essential for their development and the relationships between them have been also revealed. For example, IRF8 induces GATA2 expression to promote the generation of both basophils… Expand
Transcription Factors in the Development and Pro-Allergic Function of Mast Cells
Mast cells (MCs) are innate immune cells of hematopoietic origin localized in the mucosal tissues of the body and are broadly implicated in the pathogenesis of allergic inflammation. TranscriptionExpand
BH3 mimetics efficiently induce apoptosis in mouse basophils and mast cells
TLDR
The results indicate that by choosing the right combination of BH3 mimetic compounds, basophils and mast cells can be efficiently killed, even after stimulation with potent pro-survival cytokines such as interleukin-3. Expand
Basophils and their effector molecules in allergic disorders
TLDR
The role of basophils in allergic inflammation is highlighted with a particular focus on the induction and termination of allergic inflammation and the regulation of immune responses. Expand
The Transcription Factor PLZF Is Necessary for the Development and Function of Mouse Basophils
TLDR
PLZF, therefore, is a major player in controlling type 2 immune responses mediated not only by innate lymphocytes but also by myeloid-derived cells. Expand
Transcriptional Heterogeneity of Mast Cells and Basophils upon Activation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mast cells and basophils have cell- and activation-specific transcriptional responses and suggest that context-specific gene networks and pathways may shape how the immune system responds to allergens and innate cytokines. Expand
Role of reactive oxygen species in mast cell degranulation
TLDR
This review focuses on known molecular mechanisms of FcεRI-dependent activation of mast cells and discusses the role of ROS in the regulation of this pathway. Expand
Basophils and Eosinophils in Nematode Infections
TLDR
Type 2 epithelial cytokines play non-redundant roles in distinct responses against various nematodes, providing the potential to intervene at different stages of nematode infection and would be helpful to establish vaccination or therapeutic drugs against nem atode infections. Expand
Regulating Bcl2L12 expression in mast cells inhibits food allergy
TLDR
The apoptosis machinery in mast cells is impaired in an allergic environment and the role of B cell lymphoma 2 like protein 12 (Bcl2L12), one of the anti-apoptosis proteins, is elucidated in regulating mast cell apoptosis. Expand

Transcription factor IRF8 plays a critical role in the development of murine basophils and mast cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that interferon regulatory factor-8 (IRF8), a transcription factor essential for the development of several myeloid lineages, also regulates basophil and mast cell development and that GATA2, a transcription factors known to promote basophils and mast cells differentiation, acts downstream of IRF8.

Developmental checkpoints of the basophil/mast cell lineages in adult murine hematopoiesis.
Basophils and mast cells, which are selectively endowed with the high-affinity IgE receptor and mediate a range of adaptive and innate immune responses, have an unknown developmental relationship.Expand
Protective and pathological roles of mast cells and basophils
TLDR
New genetically modified mouse strains have been developed, which enable more specific targeting of mast cells and basophils and offer new opportunities to uncover the true in vivo activities of these cells and to revisit their previously proposed effector functions. Expand
Antagonistic regulation by the transcription factors C/EBPα and MITF specifies basophil and mast cell fates.
TLDR
A population of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors (GMPs) were identified that were highly enriched in the capacity to differentiate into basophils and mast cells while retaining a limited capacity to differentiation into myeloid cells. Expand
GATA-1 regulates the generation and function of basophils
TLDR
It is demonstrated that GATA-1 plays a key role in the generation and function of basophils and underscore the need for careful distinction of the cell lineage responsible for each phenotype observed in ΔdblGATA mice. Expand
The STAT5–GATA2 Pathway Is Critical in Basophil and Mast Cell Differentiation and Maintenance
TLDR
The study reveals that the STAT5–GATA2 pathway is critical for basophil and mast cell differentiation and maintenance. Expand
Ikaros limits basophil development by suppressing C/EBP-α expression.
TLDR
It is concluded that Ikaros is a suppressor of basophil differentiation under steady-state conditions and that it acts by regulating permissive chromatin modifications of Cebpa. Expand
Mast cell transcriptional networks.
TLDR
Controversy related to development, sites of origin, and the transcriptional program of mast cells are discussed in this review. Expand
Mast cells as "tunable" effector and immunoregulatory cells: recent advances.
TLDR
It is proposed that mast cells are "tunable," by both genetic and environmental factors, such that, depending on the circumstances, the cell can be positioned phenotypically to express a wide spectrum of variation in the types, kinetics, and/or magnitude of its secretory functions. Expand
Coordinated regulation of transcription factors through Notch2 is an important mediator of mast cell fate
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Notch signaling connects environmental cues and transcriptional control for mast cell fate decision, and determines the fate of myeloid progenitor fate toward mast cell-producing progenitors, via coordinately up-regulating Hes-1 and GATA3. Expand
