What is a mast cells?
A cell found in connective tissue that contains numerous basophilic granules and releases substances such as heparin and histamine in response to injury or inflammation of bodily tissues.
When mast cells degranulate, the release histamines Read More
Yes, mast cells are found in areolar tissues. Read More
Mast cells degranulate to release histamine. Read More
Mast cells release histamines which will dilate small blood vessels during inflammation. Read More
No, Mast Cells are not granulocytes. The terms "granulocyte" and "agranulocyte" refer to circulation cells. Masts cells, though they have granules, are found in tissues- not the circulation. Read More

Can bacteria go directly to the mast cells or do they have to go through the enzymes to cause an inflammatory response?
The mast cells often go directly to the bacteria. You would not go to someone trying to harm you and neither do bacteria. I am not sure what type of chemicals response the mast cells may be responding to. Read More
Both Heparin and Histamine are released by basophils and mast cells. These cells are very similar, but mast cells are found on mucous membranes (connective tissue) and basophils are white blood cells that travel in the blood in the circulatory system. Read More
Mast cells lead to allergic response which might be harmful to human body then why are mast cells present in your body and how are they useful to the body?
Mast cells are helpful to the physical body because they help iniate an inflammatory response. Inflammation is used by the physical body to defend it'self against incoming antigens that could potentially harm the body. Inflammation is an immune system adaptation and most sources refer to it as a secondary form of non-specific immunity. The reason Mast Cells are usefull is because they are the cells that have cell identity markers on them. Mast cells are… Read More
