Mast cells are important effector cells in allergy. They usually have a long life span and resist cell death induction. Fcγ receptor- and IgG immune complex-mediated apoptosis has been demonstrated in B-lineage cells, but not in mast cells. The aim of the current study was to investigate whether mast cells could respond to apoptosis induction by IgG immune complex aggregation of Fcγ receptors. It is known that mouse mast cells express the low-affinity Fcγ receptors FcγRIIB and FcγRIIIA, which bind IgG especially in the form of antigen-IgG immune complexes.
