Identification of CD36 as a new surface marker of marginal zone B cells by transcriptomic analysis.


Follicular (FO) B cells and marginal zone (MZ) B cells belong to the mature B cell population in spleen of mice. To identify new surface markers of these mature B cell subsets, we compared gene expression profiles of FO and MZ B cells by DNA microarray using FACS-sorted mouse FO and MZ B cells. From 14,000 mouse genes, 27 membrane proteins were expressed… (More)
