Effect of middle-wave ultraviolet irradiation and red light on degranulation of peritoneal mast cell in rats
- 19 Downloads
Middle-wave UV-irradiation inhibits liberator-induced histamine release from mast cells. Red light stimulated liberator-induced degranulation of mast cell. The existence of a membrane-dependent system activated by long-wave (red) light in mammalian cells is discussed.
