  • Maturation of the antibody repertoire is mediated by two different mechanisms: class‐switch recombination (CSR) and somatic hypermutation (SHM). These two processes are T cell dependent and occur in the germinal centers of secondary lymphoid organs. CSR leads to the production of antibodies of different isotypes whereas SHM leads to the selection of B cells expressing a BCR with high affinity for antigen. The activation‐induced cytidine deaminase (AID) was recently shown to play a key role in… CONTINUE READING
