This chapter addresses the cellular and molecular mechanisms of IgE regulation. The signals that trigger IgE synthesis are outlined and followed by a detailed description of the molecular events that such interactions induce. Over the past few decades, this molecular approach has allowed immunologists to understand the basic mechanisms of isotype switching to IgE. Finally, potential therapeutic targets of the molecular process of IgE regulation are discussed.
