Abstract

Elemental X-ray microanalysis of intact mouse peritoneal cells revealed significantly high Kα sulfur and chloride peaks, while phosphorus, sodium and calcium displayed relatively low Kα peaks. Bone marrow derived cultured mast cells exhibited a low Kα peak for sulfur and a high Kα peak for chloride. Peritoneal macrophages which served as controls differed from peritoneal mast cells by their high phosphorus and chloride content and a relatively low sulfur peak. The finding of two different spectra for the mast cells may provide additional parameters for discrimination of mast cell subsets.
