This system is one of a chronic allergic inflammation model. A single subcutaneous injection of antigens elicits a delayed-type response manifested by ear swelling. The entire response consists of three phases: Immediate, late, and chronic. The early-phase swelling peak within 1 h after allergen challenge is followed by the late-phase swelling 6-10 h late. Importantly, the ear swelling at the late-phase started on day2 and peak on day4. This late-phase ear swelling response is defined as IgE-mediated chronic allergic inflammation (IgE-CAI) and mainly regulated by basophils.

Thanks for your further question/comment. It has been sent to the author(s) of this protocol. You will receive a notification once your question/comment is addressed again by the author(s).
Meanwhile, it would be great if you could help us to spread the word about Bio-protocol.

[Abstract] This system is one of a chronic allergic inflammation model. A single subcutaneous injection of antigens elicits a delayed-type response manifested by ear swelling. The entire response consists of three phases: Immediate, late, and chronic. The early-phase swelling peak within 1 h after allergen challenge is followed by the late-phase swelling 6-10 h late. Importantly, the ear swelling at the late-phase started on day2 and peak on day4. This late-phase ear swelling response is defined as IgE-mediated chronic allergic inflammation (IgE-CAI) and mainly regulated by basophils.

Materials and Reagents

  1. Mice (C57BL/6, BALB/C)
  2. Ascites of the trinitrophenyl (TNP)-specific IgE mAb from the IGELb4 (ATCC, catalog number: TIB141)
  3. TNP11-OVA (BioTechniques, catalog number: T-5051-10)
  4. Ovalbumin (OVA) (grade V) (Sigma Aldrich, catalog number: A5503)
  5. Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) (Life Technologies, Gibco®, catalog number: 20012)

Equipment

  1. Needle (29G1/2)
  2. Syringe (1 ml) (Terumo Medical Corporation, catalog number: SS-10M2913)
  3. Dial thickness guage caliper (Ozaki, catalog number: G-1A)

Procedure

  1. Mice are sensitized with TNP-IgE mAb intravenous injection of ascites (200 μl).
  2. One day later, the left ears of mice are injected subcutaneously with 10 μg of TNP11-OVA in 10 μl of PBS.
  3. And their right ears are injected with equal amount of OVA as a control.
  4. Ear thickness is measured with a dial thickness guage caliper for 7 days.
