Naïve B cells were isolated from Irf8+/+ (wild type, WT) mice spleen and activated in vitro with 10μg/ml LPS (Sigma). CD138hi IgMhi (IRF4hi*) cells and CD138lo IgMlo (IRF8hi*) cells were sorted by flow cytometry at 72 hours. Total RNA was prepared by using Rneasy Mini kit (Qiagen) and sequenced with Illumina HiSeq2500. Alignment was performed with Taphat2, and transcript abundance quantification using Cuffdiff function from Cufflinks. GC B cells were sorted from CD19cre/+ Irf8+/+ (Ctrl) or CD19cre/+ Irf8flox/flox (Irf8 cKO) mice on dpi 13 post NP-KLH immunization. Total RNA was prepared by using Rneasy Mini kit (Qiagen) and amplified with with Ovation RNA-Seq System v2 (NuGEN). The data were analyzed by Wardrobe. More details are provided in the manuscript.
