    ..Our data suggest that PM2.5, mainly water-soluble fraction of PM2.5, could affect mast cell activation through enhancing FcεRI-mediated signaling. ..

    ..In addition, it impaired TCR downregulation and the secondary T cell response. Together, our results suggested that PLD1 plays an important role in T cell activation. ..
