Abstract

Basophils and mast cells play a role both in immediate allergic reactions and in inflammation. Both types of cells have surface adhesion receptors that can mediate binding to other cells and to extracellular matrix glycoproteins. Here Majed Hamawy and colleagues discuss the importance of these adhesion molecules in regulating basophil and mast-cell functions.
