[…] usage of igh or igl (igh and igl v usage exemplarily shown in fig. s3 c and d). these results exclude the possibility that the observed effects in b cell numbers are simply secondary to a skewed b cell receptor repertoire., to study the functional consequences of foxp1 deficiency in b cells, we next measured ig concentrations in sera of unchallenged foxp1flox/del;cd19 mice and controls. […]

[…] next-generation sequencing methodologies that can yield millions of immunoglobulin gene sequences in a single sequencing run have already given insights into the steady-state and antigen-stimulated b-cell receptor repertoire (, ). on the other hand, low-throughput techniques such as x-ray crystallography can provide detailed information about individual antibody structures. computational […]

[…] of an antigen-specific subset of sequences. one challenge is that not all cells with a rearranged immunoglobulin locus express immunoglobulin protein. distinctions have been found between the b-cell receptor repertoire and the plasma cell repertoire that drives immunoglobulin expression (). another challenge is the tissue niche that is sampled for obtaining sequence information. […]

[…] exposure in utero in developed countries and does not necessarily imply fetuses cannot make germinal centers. total lymphocyte counts increase steadily from 20 wks through 40 wks [] and the b cell receptor repertoire diversifies throughout gestation [,]. thus, the ga at which the fetus is exposed to ag may influence the resulting antibody (ab) response., in the present study, fetal igm […]

[…] is counteracted by bcl6. consequently, in the absence of bcl6, few small resting pre-b cells survive the transition from large cycling pre-b cell to small resting pre-b cell, leading to a diminished b-cell receptor repertoire, indicating that bcl6 plays a crucial role in the generation of a diverse primary b-cell repertoire [] ()., a large fraction of recurrent chromosomal translocations found […]
