Asked in Human Anatomy and Physiology
What cells release histamine How does the body respond to the release of histamine?
Asked in Immune System
As a result of an allergen-antibody reaction?
An allergic reaction is triggered by later encounters with the same allergen, which promptly binds and cross-links the IgE antibodies on the surface of the mast cells and basophils. This event includes an enzymatic cascade that causes the mast cells and basophils to degranulate, releasing a flood of histamine and other inflammatory chemicals that together induce the inflammatory response typical of allergy. page 798 anatomy and phisiology eighth edition

What occurs when mast cells and basophil cells degranulate?
Can you give me sentences using the word mast cells?
Asked in Immune System
Do memory B cells remember pathogens?
Yes. First exposure: Sensitizing dose - elicits no symptoms Memory B cells are produced (now have the memory) Small amount of IgE antibodies are produced Mast cells and basophils activated Second exposure: Allergens (those things that cause an allergy) bind to memory B cells. B cells produce large amounts of IgE antibodies (high titer) IgE bind to mast and basophil cells Release chemical mediators
What is a bronchospasm?
a spasm of the bronchials...the "medical" definition-a sudden constriction of the muscles in the walls of the bronchioles. It is caused by the release (degranulation) of substances from mast cells or basophils under the influence of anaphylatoxins. It causes difficulty in breathing which can be very mild to severe.
Asked in Genetics
What role do mast cells play in the immune response?
Asked in Health, Immune System
Does antigen antibody reaction release histamine?
There are 5 main immunoglobulin isotypes (antibodies): IgM, IgD, IgG, IgE, IgA IgE antibodies will bind to mast cells and basophils and form cross-links when exposed to an allergen. Preformed histamine granules are released from the mast cells. This is the mechanism for type I hypersensitivity (i.e. asthma and allergies). wikipedia.org/wiki/Mast_cell Other antibodies provide different functions.
