In contrast, mucosal mast cells require T-cell cytokine help for granule formation, and therefore normally contain low levels of histamine. Also, mucosal mast cells synthesize mostly leukotrienes after stimulation. Importantly, the granule type and functional activity can be altered by the tissue location, but the regulation of these important differences is not well understood. Basophils and mast cells differ from other granulocytes in several important ways. The granule contents are different from those of PMN or eosinophils and mast cells express high-affinity Fc receptors for IgE.

All complement factors are synthesized by the liver and released into blood. However, some specific factors can also be synthesized locally within tissues, including within cornea, sclera, and retina. Upon activation, the various proteins of the complement system interact in a sequential cascade to produce different fragments and products capable of effecting a variety of functions. Three pathways have been identified to activate the complement cascade: classical pathway, alternative pathway, and the lectin pathway (Fig.
