The immune system can remember a previously experienced pathogen and can evoke an enhanced response to reinfection that depends on memory lymphocyte populations. Recent advances in tracking antigen-experienced memory B cells have revealed the existence of distinct classes of cells that have considerable functional differences. Some of these differences seem to be determined by the stimulation history during memory cell formation. To induce rapid recall antibody responses, the contributions of… Expand
Resident Memory B Cells.
TLDR
The characteristics of memory B cells in various locations are described and their possible contributions to immunity and homeostasis as bona fide BRM cells are discussed. Expand
Do Memory B Cells Form Secondary Germinal Centers? It Depends.
TLDR
It is proposed that the production of plasmablasts or GC cells by a memory B cell is controlled by its state of differentiation and the amount and affinity of antigen-specific antibodies present in the individual in which it resides. Expand
Memory B cell heterogeneity: Remembrance of things past
TLDR
Current thoughts on the phenotypic and functional characteristics of MBCs are reviewed, focusing on a population of somatically hypermutated, high affinity IgM+ M BCs that are rapidly responsive to a secondary malaria infection. Expand
Insights From Analysis of Human Antigen-Specific Memory B Cell Repertoires
TLDR
This review discusses what has been learned thus far from analysis of diverse pathogen-specific memory B cell compartments and describes major differences in their repertoires. Expand
Memory B cells and tuberculosis.
TLDR
The role of memory B cells in post-skin test recall antibody responses in bovine tuberculosis and implications for development of improved immunodiagnostics are reviewed. Expand
Control of memory B cell responses by extrinsic and intrinsic mechanisms.
TLDR
This review highlights current concepts of how B cells preserve their antigen experience at the cellular and molecular level. Expand
Generation of memory B cells and their reactivation
TLDR
Recent progress in understanding of how memory B cells are generated in the pre‐GC stage and during the GC reaction, and how these memory B Cells are robustly reactivated with the help of memory Tfh cells to generate the secondary antibody response are reviewed. Expand
Immunological memory cells
This article reviews immunological memory cells, currently represented by T and B lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells, which determine a rapid and effective response against a second encounterExpand
Antibody Affinity Shapes the Choice between Memory and Germinal Center B Cell Fates
TLDR
It is found that contemporaneously developing memory and GC B cells differ in their affinity for antigen throughout the immune response, and the polyclonal memory B cell compartment is composed of B cells that were activated during the immune responded but whose antigen binding affinity failed to support further clonal expansion in the GC. Expand
B Cell Immunity
TLDR
This chapter discusses the types of B cells found in the body, the role of surface receptors in activating B cells, B cell interactions with T cells, formation of germinal centers, isotype switching, affinity maturation, and the production of memory B cells and antibody-secreting plasma cells.

Different B Cell Populations Mediate Early and Late Memory During an Endogenous Immune Response
TLDR
It is proposed that memory relies on swIg+ cells until they disappear and serum immunoglobulin falls to a low level, in which case memory resides with durable IgM+ reserves. Expand
Diversity Among Memory B Cells: Origin, Consequences, and Utility
TLDR
The heterogeneity in development and phenotype of memory B cells and whether particular functions are partitioned into distinct subsets is considered and how understanding the details of generating memory may provide opportunities to develop better, functionally targeted vaccines is considered. Expand
Multiple layers of B cell memory with different effector functions
TLDR
A new mouse model of memory B cell labeling dependent on the cytidine deaminase AID is used, which shows that after immunization with a particulate antigen, B cell memory appeared in several subsets, comprising clusters of immunoglobulin M–positive and IgG1+ B cells in germinal center–like structures that persisted up to 8 months after immunized. Expand
Memory B-cell persistence is independent of persisting immunizing antigen
TLDR
By using a genetic switch mediated by Cre recombinase, it is shown that memory B cells switching their antibody specificity away from the immunizing antigen are indeed maintained in the animal over long periods of time, similar to cells retaining their original antigen-binding specificity. Expand
Multiple players in mouse B cell memory.
TLDR
The impact of a protracted germinal center response to the specific mobilization of IgM memory B cells is proposed and the diversity of memory B cell cells, as well as controversial issues on their relative contribution to the recall response are described. Expand
Immunological Memory and Protective Immunity: Understanding Their Relation
TLDR
The current understanding of the cellular basis of immune memory is reviewed and the relative contributions made to protective immunity by memory and effector T and B cells are examined. Expand
T-independent type II immune responses generate memory B cells
TLDR
It is reported that polysaccharide antigens elicit memory B cells that are phenotypically distinct from those elicited by protein antIGens, and memory B cell responses against polysacCharides are regulated by antigen-specific immunoglobulin G antibodies. Expand
Activation of Virus-specific Memory B Cells in the Absence of T Cell Help
TLDR
Activation of virus-specific memory B cells to secrete IgG is independent of cognate or bystander T cell help, indicating thatHumoral immunity is maintained by long-lived plasma cells, constitutively secreting antibodies, and nonsecreting restingMemory B cells that are rapidly reactivated upon antigen encounter. Expand
B Lymphocyte Memory
TLDR
The data suggest that CD21/CD35 on stroma, including follicular dendritic cells, is critical to the maintenance of long-term B lymphocyte memory, and FcγRIIB−/− chimeras showed a differential phenotype with impaired splenic but normal bone marrow responses. Expand
Dynamics of B cells in germinal centres
TLDR
This Review focuses on recent studies that uncovered crucial cues that are required for the formation and the maintenance of GCs and for the selection of high-affinity antibody mutants and its implications for the establishment of humoral immunity. Expand
