Selective adhesion of mast cells to tracheal epithelial cells in vitro.

Abstract

In allergic and nonallergic lung diseases, if intraluminal mast cells adhere to airway epithelium, inflammatory mediators released from activated mast cells may reach high local concentrations and thus greatly affect airway function. To determine whether mast cells adhere to airway epithelial cells, radiolabeled or unlabeled dog mastocytoma cells were… (More)
