Immunology: Th1/Th2 vs cellular/humoral responses

... have Th2-deviated (cytokines such as IL4) responses that promote IgE formation. IgE, in turn, binds to basophils and mast cells and when an allergen is bound by its specific IgE, it cross-links the FceRI receptors on surface of the basophil and causes the release of substances that ...
