TI   Allergen-induced recruitment of Fc.epsilon.RI+ eosinophils in human
     atopic skin

AB   Fc.epsilon.RI+ eosinophils were identifyed in cutaneous late-phase
     reaction in atopic subjects biopsied at 6, 24, and 48 h after the
     injection of either allergen or a diluent control.  Compared to the
     diluent sites, allergen-injected sites had increased nos. of
     eosinophils, peaking between 6-24 h, of which approx. 20-30%
     expressed mRNA for the .alpha., .beta., and .gamma. chains of
     Fc.epsilon.RI, as shown by in situ hybridization.  Using either a
     monoclonal or a polyclonal anti-.alpha. chain antibody, the
     Fc.epsilon.RI.alpha. protein also co-localized to approx. 50-80% of
     eosinophils at all time points studied.  A correlation was obsd.
     between the nos. of Fc.epsilon.RI+ (997+)/EG2+ eosinophils and the
     magnitude of the late-phase reaction.  Thus, a significant proportion
     of eosinophils infiltrating the site of allergen-induced allergic
     tissue reactions in atopic subjects express Fc.epsilon.RI.  The
     findings show that high-affinity IgE receptors may play a role in
     eosinophil secretory processes in vivo.
