Since N-acetylneuraminic acid (NANA) in cell membrane glucocalyx mediates or modulates a variety of actions, such as mediator release, we examined a possible modulating role of this amino sugar in histamine release from human basophil leukocytes. Removal of NANA from the cell membrane by the enzyme neuraminidase caused a dose-dependent histamine release. Removal of smaller amounts of NANA enhanced histamine release induced by anti-IgE, Concanavalin A and the calcium ionophore A23187, and reduced the interval between addition of antigen and initiation of histamine release...
