Abstract

We previously demonstrated that histamine synthesis is drastically induced upon sensitization with an anti-DNP IgE clone, SPE-7, in IL-3-dependent mouse bone marrow derived mast cells (BMMC). We found that Ca2+ mobilization induced by SPE-7 exhibited a similar profile to the capacitative Ca2+ entry evoked by thapsigargin. Potentials for activation of mast cells were found to vary between different IgE clones, and a monovalent hapten, DNP-lysine, suppressed the activation induced by SPE-7. Ca2+ mobilization induced by SPE-7 was suppressed potently by the specific store-operated Ca2+ channel inhibitor, SK&F 96365, but not at all by Ca2+ channel inhibitors with more broad spectrum, La3+ and Gd3+, whereas the Ca2+ mobilization induced by Ag stimulation was suppressed by these inhibitors. Ca2+ mobilization was also induced by SPE-7 in in vitro differentiated mast cells, although the increases in histamine synthesis and IL-6 release were smaller than those in BMMC. These results suggest that Ca2+ influx operated by a distinct mechanism from that in Ag stimulation is essential for increased histamine synthesis and IL-6 release in mast cells.
