    CO2 Decreases Mast Cell Sensitivity

    Treatment of mast cells with carbon dioxide suppresses degranulation via a novel mechanism involving repression of increased intracellular calcium levels. Results from this study provide the first evidence of a unique regulatory mechanism by which CO₂ inhibits mast cell degranulation and...
