Tryptase (In the pipeline)
Mast cell tryptase, also known simply as tryptase, is a highly abundant proteinase stored in basophils and the secretory granules of mast cells, which is released upon cellular activation. The enzyme is therefore considered a key marker for mast cell activation, as well as acting as a critical mediator of inflammation. Elevated levels of serum tryptase occur in both anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions. Anti-Tryptase acts as a good marker for mast cells, basophils, and their derivatives.
