The stimuli releasing histamine from murine bone marrow-derived mast cells (BMMC). 3. Effect of coculture with 3T3 fibroblasts on the histamine releasability of BMMC.


Murine bone marrow-derived mast cells at 3 wk in culture were further cultured in the absence (N-BMMC) or presence (F-BMMC) of 3T3 fibroblasts in the medium containing LI-3, and were examined for their functional responses to either histamine releasing stimuli such as compound 48/80 or an inhibitor of histamine release, disodium cromoglycate. After 3 weeks… (More)
