    BACKGROUND: The gene of the beta subunit of the high affinity receptor for IgE (FcåRI-â) encoded on chromosome 11q13 has recently been identified as a candidate gene for asthma and atopy. Two coding variations, E237G and I181L have been described as being associated with asthma and atopy....

    The high affinity IgE Fc receptor (FcεRI) on mast cells and basophils has a central role in allergy and asthma. The β subunit of this multimeric receptor is a membrane tetra-spanning protein that encodes a nonconventional immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif (ITAM) that imparts...

    Antibody affinity for antigen is believed to govern B lymphocyte selection during T-dependent immune responses.
