In the mouse, conventional B cells are continuously generated from precursor cells located in the bone marrow (BM), whereas the small subset of B-1 cells (formerly called Ly-1 B cells) constitute a self-replenishing population of cells. Here we studied the kinetics of murine peritoneal B-1a cells (i.e. B-1 cells expressing CD5). The actual number of B-1a… CONTINUE READING
