Lineage commitment and differentiation to a mature cell type are considered to be unidirectional and irreversible processes under physiological conditions. The commitment of haematopoietic progenitors to the B-cell lineage and their development to mature B lymphocytes critically depend on the transcription factor encoded by the paired box gene 5 (Pax5). Here we show that conditional Pax5 deletion in mice allowed mature B cells from peripheral lymphoid organs to dedifferentiate in vivo back to… CONTINUE READING
