Mouse mast cell line MC/9

Mouse mast cell line MC/9 stained with MAR-1 FITC



Description:

FcεRIα is a transmembrane protein belonging to the Ig superfamily. FcεRIα forms a tetrameric complex with one β and two γ-subunits. The FcεRI complex plays an important role in triggering IgE-mediated allergic reactions. It is abundantly expressed on mast and basophils and up-regulated by the presence of IgE. Following stimulation via FcεRIα, mast cells and basophils release bioactive chemical mediators such as histamine, resulting in the initiation of allergic reactions. Cross linking of the high-affinity receptor for IgE on tissue mast cells triggers immediate hypersensitivity with local symptoms. The MAR-1 monoclonal antibody reacts with the FcεRIα subunit.

Other Names: FceRIa, FceRI-α, high affinity IgE receptor
Structure: A transmembrane protein of Ig super family member
Distribution: Expressed on mast and basophils.
Function: Play an important role in triggering IgE-mediated allergic reactions.
Ligand Receptor: IgE
