CD27 is present on the surface of a major subset of peripheral blood T lymphocytes. In this report we show that CD27 is also expressed on a subpopulation of the normal human B cell lineage which is absent from cord blood but present in tonsils and in the peripheral blood of adult individuals. CD27+ B lymphocytes are characterized by the following criteria: (a) in terms of physical properties, the CD27+ B cells form a population with an increased cell size combined with a decreased cell density… Expand
Phenotype and function of human B cells expressing CD70 (CD27 ligand)
TLDR
Functional experiments revealed that whereas both CD70− and CD70+ B cells can secrete immunoglobulin after activation with a combination of Staphylococcus aureus Cowan strain I and IL‐2, only CD70-B cells can produce large quantities of antibodies when stimulated in a T cell‐dependent fashion. Expand
CD27/CD70 interaction directly drives B cell IgG and IgM synthesis
TLDR
Functional data is presented showing that B cells secrete large amounts of IgG and IgM as a result of the CD27/CD70 interaction, suggesting that the interaction of CD27 with its ligand, CD70, on B cells plays an important role in B cell growth and differentiation to produce IgGand IgM. Expand
Expression and release of CD27 in human B-cell malignancies.
TLDR
With the exception of pro-B and the majority of pre-pre-B acute lymphocytic leukemias and of myelomas, CD27 expression of variable intensity was detected on almost all immature and mature malignant B cells tested. Expand
Expression and release of CD27 in human B-cell malignancies.
TLDR
A strong correlation between s CD27 levels in the serum and tumor load is found, indicating that sCD27 can be used as a disease-marker in patients with acute and chronic B-cell malignancies. Expand
Identification of Functional Human Splenic Memory B Cells by Expression of CD148 and CD27
TLDR
Examining the expression of the receptor-type protein tyrosine phosphatase CD148 on human B cells identifies CD148 and CD27 as markers which positively identify memory B cells present in human spleen. Expand
The human fetal lymphocyte lineage: identification by CD27 and LIN28B expression in B cell progenitors
TLDR
Observations suggest that CD27 expression during B cell development identifies a physiologic state or lineage for human B celldevelopment distinct from the memory B cell compartment. Expand
Identification of a novel subpopulation of germinal center B cells characterized by expression of IgD and CD70
TLDR
The concordant expression of CD27 and its ligand CD70 on this primordial subset of GC B cells suggests an important role for CD27/CD70 interaction at this stage of GC formation. Expand
Double-Positive CD21+CD27+ B Cells Are Highly Proliferating Memory Cells and Their Distribution Differs in Mucosal and Peripheral Tissues
TLDR
It is suggested that Double positive CD21+CD27+ B cells in both peripheral and lymphoid tissues are memory B cells, able to produce antibody by polyclonal activation, and without T cell help and their function and proliferation might have an important role in HIV/SIV mediated B cell dysregulation and pathogenesis. Expand
Characterization of the human CD27 ligand, a novel member of the TNF gene family.
TLDR
CD27 and its ligand are identified as potentially important structures involved in cellular interactions between T and B lymphocytes and exerted a potent inhibitory effect on the proliferation of T cells in response to allogeneic B cells and PHA. Expand
Expression of CD27 and its ligand, CD70, on chronic lymphocytic leukemia B cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that reciprocal changes in expression of CD27 and CD70 may contribute to the enhanced antigen-presenting capacity of CLL B cells after CD40-dependent leukemic B-cell activation. Expand

Tissue distribution and biochemical and functional properties of Tp55 (CD27), a novel T cell differentiation antigen.
TLDR
It is shown that antibodies belonging to this cluster recognize an antigen present on a large subset of peripheral T lymphocytes and most medullary thymocytes, which appears in the form of a disulfide-linked homodimer on the T lymphocyte membrane (Tp55). Expand
Human monoclonal rheumatoid factor-like antibodies from CD5 (Leu-1)+ B cells are polyreactive.
TLDR
It is argued that broad polyreactivity is an inherent property of the antibodies produced by CD5+ B lymphocytes and that these antibodies may be what has been referred to as the "natural antibodies" of the serum. Expand
Expression of adhesion structures during B cell development in man.
TLDR
The data document the coordinated regulation of multiple cell surface structures during B cell ontogeny, and demonstrate that adhesion structures necessary for proper B cell function are precisely up-regulated during B Cell differentiation in man. Expand
Development and distribution of a human B cell subpopulation identified by the HB-4 monoclonal antibody.
TLDR
The HB-4 antigen may serve as a useful nonimmunoglobulin marker for the identification of a subpopulation of mature resting B cells that are present in the highest frequency in the circulation. Expand
Phenotypic and Functional Characterization of Human LEUI (CD5) B Cells
TLDR
There is no evidence to suggest that Leu1 B cells in normal peripheral blood, spleen, and tonsil are activated, immature, or capable of an immunoregulatory function. Expand
Functional properties of human B cell subpopulations defined by monoclonal antibodies HB4 and FMC7.
TLDR
The results suggest that the majority of B cells found in the blood and which can be characterized as being surface IgM+/IgD+ HB4+ are immature cells unable to respond to differentiation-inducing signals. Expand
Human lymphocytes making rheumatoid factor and antibody to ssDNA belong to Leu-1+ B-cell subset.
TLDR
It is concluded that the Leu-1+ lymphocytes represent a major subset of the normal human B cell repertoire and include the B cells capable of making autoantibodies similar to those found in systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Rheumatoid factor secretion from human Leu-1+ B cells.
TLDR
Both developmental and functional homologies are suggested between this human B cell subpopulation and the murine Ly-1 B cell subclass, which is present early in development and extends to adulthood. Expand
The lymphocyte function-associated LFA-1, CD2, and LFA-3 molecules: cell adhesion receptors of the immune system.
TLDR
This review focuses on LFAI, CD2, and LFA-3, which appear to enhance antigen-specific functions by acting as cell adhesion molecules and the role of CD4 and CD8 is reviewed by Littman. Expand

TLDR
During fetal life, lower concentrations of anti‐y antibodies were required for modulation of sIgM from B lymphocytes of fetal liver and adult bone marrow than for equivalent removal from circulating B cells of mature individuals. Expand
