Nature of cells binding anti-IgE in rats immunized with Nippostrongylus brasiliensis: IgE synthesis in regional nodes and concentration in mucosal mast cells

European Journal of Immunology
G MayrhoferJ L GOWANS


The possibility that IgE is a secretory immunoglobulin has been examined by studying the tissue and cellular localization of IgE in rats infested with the enteric parasite, Nippostrongylus brasiliensis. The lamina propria of the small intestine and the colonic and pulmonary mucosal surfaces contained numerous anti-IgE-binding cells, but these were shown to be mast cells and not plasma cells. The major site of IgE synthesis was the regional lymph node of the small intestine, the mesenteric node, which contained large numbers of IgE-secreting plasma cells. Smaller numbers of IgE-secreting plasma cells were also found in the axillary node, which drained the site of larvae injection. Peyer's patches, the intrapulmonary bronchial lymphoid tissue and the spleen contained few, if any, IgE-secreting plasma cells. The significance of the IgE which was readily demonstrated in germinal centers of the mesenteric lymph nodes, the Peyer's patches and the axillary lymph nodes, is not known. In contrast to the infested animals, the lymphoid organs of normal rats rarely contained any IgE-CONTAINING CELLS; An unexpected observation was that mast cells in mucosal organs appear to contain intracellular IgE, differing in this respect from connectiv...Continue Reading
