Working Group 1

Physiological and pathophysiological importance of mast cells and basophils in health and disease

  1. Collection of current knowledge on disease and physiological states associated with hyperplasia or activation signs of mast cells or of basophils.
  2. Identificaiton of strategies to find novel functions of these two cells in vivo in animal models of diseases.
  3. Systematic classification of physiological and pathophysiological relevance of mediators, growth factors, specific chemokines, receptors, activators, inhibitors, ion channels.
  4. Description of the function of signal transduction pathways initiated by known or newly defined activators/receptors.

We aim to provide guidelines to study these cells and to compile a "mast cell desk reference".
