In this paper we show that rat peritoneal mast cells (RPMC) adhere to rat oligodendrocytes (ODC) in culture and switch on a bi-directional signal affecting both adhering cell and its target. Following heterotypic interaction, RPMC release granule content and ODC show morphological changes and enter the apoptotic programme. Altogether, these findings indicate that the interaction of MC with ODC could play a role in the mechanism of CNS damage induced by the inflammatory reaction.

Abstract

In this paper we show that rat peritoneal mast cells (RPMC) adhere to rat oligodendrocytes (ODC) in culture and switch on a bi-directional signal affecting both adhering cell and its target. Following heterotypic interaction, RPMC release granule content and ODC show morphological changes and enter the apoptotic programme. Altogether, these findings indicate that the interaction of MC with ODC could play a role in the mechanism of CNS damage induced by the inflammatory reaction.
