Normal human cord blood B cells can produce high affinity IgG antibodies to dsDNA that are recognized by cord blood-derived anti-idiotypic antibodies.

Abstract

It is possible to identify, in Epstein-Barr virus-transformed normal human cord blood B cell populations, cells present at a low frequency that produce IgG antibodies specific for dsDNA. By cloning out these B cells as immortalized monoclonal cell lines, it could be shown that the antibodies were the products of CD5 positive B cells. Two monoclonal anti… (More)
