Analysis of the expression of CD5 by human B cells and correlation with functional activity.


B cells expressing the CD5 marker in the mouse have been suggested to be a separate lineage and a major source of autoantibody production. In man, this relationship is less clear. Studies were therefore undertaken to determine whether human CD5+ B cells represent a distinct lineage of cells that differ in patterns of antibody production from CD5- B cells… (More)
