inflammatory mediatorsZoomA-Z

Subject - Immunology

Chemical transmitters or mediators of inflammation are compounds that are stored in the mast cells, such as histamine, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and bradykinin. These have a similar effect to histamine and intensify inflammation. In humans, histamine is found in all bodily tissues, with particularly high concentrations in the mast cells and basophil granulocytes. It is the most well known mediator of allergic inflammations.
