Figure 1 Morphological aspect of mast cells found in tissues (A) and in cell culture after in vitro differentiation (B). The presence of numerous granules that can be stained by several dyes, including toluidine blue (A) can be noticed. The granular aspect of mast cells can be also seen by using phase-contrast microscopy (B). Images obtained by Pinke, KH by using Axiostar Plus HBO 50/AC Zeiss conventional microscope or LEICA/DM IRBE inverted microscope, both located at Bauru School of Dentistry, University of São Paulo, Brazil.
