Activating receptors generate not only activation signals, but also inhibition signals. This can be unraveled by monitoring the release of granular mediators by mast cells sensitized with a constant amount of IgE antibodies and challenged with increasing concentrations of specific antigen. Mediator release dose-dependently increases up to an optimal concentration of antigen. Beyond this concentration, mediator release declines progressively and, in large excess of antigen, it is abrogated. This long-known bell-shaped dose– response curve was recently demonstrated to result from an active auto-inhibition of activating receptor signaling that limits mast cell activation beyond a given threshold (Huber 2013).

Although high amounts of FcgRIIB that have a major dominant inhibitory effect on IgG- and IgE-induced activation were found in human basophils, FcgRIIB expression is questionable on human mast cells. It may differ markedly on mast cells from different tissues. Human cord blood-derived mast cells were indeed reported to express FcgRIIB, but not skin-derived human mast cells. Activating and Inhibitory Receptors on Mast Cells The co-engagement of FceRI with all other ITIM-containing receptors also inhibits mast cell activation.
