B cells are key components of the adaptive immune response. Their differentiation into either specific memory B cells or antibody-secreting plasma cells is a consequence of activation steps that involve the processing and presentation of antigens. The engagement of B cell receptors by surface-tethered antigens leads to the formation of an immunological synapse that coordinates cell signalling events and that promotes antigen uptake for presentation on MHC class II molecules. In this Review, we… Expand
A critical role for cell polarity in antigen extraction, processing, and presentation by B lymphocytes.
TLDR
The fundamental molecular and cell biological mechanisms that enable B cells to efficiently sense, acquire, and respond to extracellular antigens are reviewed. Expand
B Cells use Conserved Polarity Cues to Regulate Their Antigen Processing and Presentation Functions
TLDR
How B cells rely on conserved cell polarity mechanisms to coordinate local proteolytic secretion and mechanical forces at the B cell synapse enabling them to efficiently acquire and present extracellular antigens is described. Expand
Tuning B cell responses to antigens by cell polarity and membrane trafficking
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms that regulate polarized membrane trafficking and mechanical properties of the immune synapse are discussed, as well as the potential extracellular cues from the environment, which may impact the ability of B cells to sense and acquire antigens at the immunesynapse. Expand
Early BCR Events and Antigen Capture, Processing, and Loading on MHC Class II on B Cells
TLDR
The steps required for antigen uptake, processing, and loading of peptides onto MHC Class II compartments in B cells for efficient presentation to CD4 T cells are described, with a special focus in the initial steps of BCR recognition of antigen. Expand
Molecular Control of B Cell Activation and Immunological Synapse Formation
TLDR
The functions and molecular mechanisms of the IS are discussed and the multifaceted role of the actin cytoskeleton in several aspects of B cell activation is highlighted, including the initiation of receptor signaling. Expand
Molecular mechanisms regulating B lymphocyte polarization
In secondary lymphoid organs, B cells acquire antigens that are tethered at the surface of neighboring cells. Engagement of the B cell receptor (BCR) with such immobilized antigens leads to theExpand
The Other Function: Class II-Restricted Antigen Presentation by B Cells
TLDR
Modulation of the MHCII presentation pathway across B cell development and maturation to effector cells is discussed, with an emphasis on the shaping of theMHCII/peptide repertoire by two key antigen presentation regulators in B cells: HLA-DM and Hla-DO. Expand
Structure, Function, and Spatial Organization of the B Cell Receptor
TLDR
Recent work using powerful microscopy techniques has revealed that the dynamic spatial organization of the BCR within the plasma membrane is a key determinant of BCR signaling. Expand
The regulation of B cell activation by membrane damage and antigen density
TLDR
It was discovered that BCR activation interferes with plasma membrane repair, while wounding inhibits BCR signaling and internalization by segregating BCRs from lipid rafts, and manipulations of molecular configuration and density can be applied to enhance the immunogenicity of vaccines. Expand
Antigen Acquisition In Vivo and its Role in B Cell Activation
TLDR
Here, a specialized B cell population in the marginal zone (MZ) shuttles antigen from the MZ to FDCs in white pulp follicles in an analogous mechanism to that of the lymph node. Expand

Dynamics of Membrane Trafficking Downstream of B and T Cell Receptor Engagement: Impact on Immune Synapses
TLDR
The notion that polarization of T and B lymphocytes characterized by global changes in cytoskeleton and membrane trafficking modulates synapse structure and function, thus determining lymphocyte effector functions and fate is stressed. Expand
The who, how and where of antigen presentation to B cells
TLDR
This Review summarize studies that have used high-resolution imaging approaches to visualize antigen presentation to B cells in secondary lymphoid organs that illustrate that encounters of B cells with antigen in these organs can be facilitated by diffusion of the antigen or by the presentation of antigen by macrophages, dendritic cells and follicular dendsritic cells.

TLDR
The intensity and duration of BCR signaling may play a more important part in shaping B cell responses than early Ag presentation for T cell help in shaping the humoral response. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary evidence suggests that the cellular morphology changes described in vitro are likely to occur upon recognition of antigen presented on the surface of macrophages in lymph nodes in vivo. Expand

TLDR
This Review will discuss how these factors work together in the lymph node to ensure efficient and persistent exposure of B cells to diverse forms of antigen and thus effective triggering of the humoral response. Expand

B cells acquire antigen from target cells after synapse formation
TLDR
It is shown that B-cell interaction with antigens that are immobilized on the surface of a target cell leads to the formation of a synapse and the acquisition, even, of membrane-integral antigen from the target. Expand
Extrafollicular Activation of Lymph Node B Cells by Antigen-Bearing Dendritic Cells
TLDR
It is shown that, after exiting high-endothelial venules and before entry into lymph node follicles, B cells survey locally concentrated dendritic cells, suggesting a possible role for antigen-specific B-DC interactions in promoting T cell–dependent antibody responses in vivo. Expand
Receptor-directed focusing of lymphokine release by helper T cells
TLDR
Using an artificial monolayer of a cloned helper T-cell line, it is shown that lymphokines are r eleased preferentially over the area of receptor cross-linking under conditions of limited TH-cell activation, suggesting one important aspect of the specificity of TH–B cell interactions is the receptor-directed polar release of helper lymphOKines.
