They act as the major effector cells in IgEmediated immune-triggered inflammatory reactions, especially allergy or immediate hypersensitivity. Mast cells also participate in the induction of cell-mediated immunity, wound healing, and other functions not directly related to IgE-mediated degranulation (72,73). Other stimuli, such as complement or certain cytokines, may also trigger degranulation (74). Mast cells are also capable of inducing cell injury or death through their release of TNF-α. For example, mast cells have been associated with neuronal degeneration and death in thiamine deficiency and toxic metabolic diseases.

This novel pathway of intracellular antibody/antigen complex formation may cause some cases of nephritis in the absence of complement activation. This pathway has also been implicated in paraneoplastic syndromes, especially cancer-associated retinopathy (CAR), in which autoantibodies to intracellular photoreceptor-associated antigens may mediate rod or cone degeneration (98).
