Consequently, it has been proposed that the reason outbred mice typically do not manifest spontaneous allergic disease is because of the lack of this mechanism for trimeric CD23 upregulation of IgE production . However, from the published sequence data for canine CD23 , it is likely that dogs also lack the sequence responsible for CD23/CD21 binding. Thus, speculation that lack of direct binding of CD23 to CD21 precludes spontaneous allergic disease may be premature. The immunoglobulin E network of soluble receptors and autoantibody complexes As outlined above, IgE is bound by the alpha chain of the high-affinity receptor that is present in cell surface tetrameric FcεRI on mast cells and basophils, and in trimeric FcεRI (lacking beta chain) present on eosinophils, antigen presenting cells such as dendritic cells and Langerhans cells, and on epithelial cells.

T cells: different populations and cytokine response As research in CAD progressed, it became clear that T lymphocytes play a fundamental role and great effort was made to investigate whether an imbalance in Th populations was present. In humans, a biphasic response has been described where Th2 predominate in the acute phase (producing IL-4, IL-5, IL-13) and Th1 predominate in the chronic phase (producing gamma-IFN and IL-2) [29,30]. This is particularly evident in atopy patch test studies .
