Term Information [More information on type I hypersensitivity]

Accession
GO:0016068
Name
type I hypersensitivity
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
immediate hypersensitivity response
Definition
An inflammatory response driven by antigen recognition by antibodies bound to Fc receptors on mast cells or basophils, occurring within minutes after exposure of a sensitized individual to the antigen, and leading to the release of a variety of inflammatory mediators such as histamines.
