Based on the observation that 3 months alpha-tocopherol supplementation caused an up-regulation of the mRNA of vesicular transport proteins in livers of mice, the functional relevance was investigated in RBL-2H3 cells, a model for mast cell degranulation. In total, 24 h incubation with 100 muM alpha-tocopherol enhanced the basal and phorbol-12-myristyl-13… CONTINUE READING
