During B cell development, the surface expression of CD79 alpha/CD79 beta heterodimers had been thought to begin in the pre-B cell stage where the heterodimers constitute pre-B cell receptors together with mu heavy and surrogate light chains. Thereafter, in mature B cells, CD79 alpha/CD79 beta associates with surface Ig to form B cell antigen receptors. In this study, we revealed by using newly established mAb that CD79 beta was expressed on the surface of pro-B cells which had not undergone… CONTINUE READING
