Validation of Mast Cell Populations in Genetically Modified Mice by Histology. Lung tissue slices were obtained from wildtype C57BL/6, B-cell−/−, CD4−/−, CD8−/− and Mast-cell−/− naïve male mice. They were stained utilising a standard Toluidine Blue histological stain and numbers of mast cells per slide were counted (×40 magnification) by a blinded observer. Data is expressed as mean cell number per slide ± s.e.m. n = 6–8. One-way ANOVA, Kruskall-Wallis test with post-hoc comparisons using Dunn’s multiple comparison test. #p < 0.05 compared to wildtype control group
