Short-lived and Long-lived Bone Marrow Plasma Cells Are Derived from a Novel Precursor Population

Abstract

The contribution that long-lived bone marrow (BM) plasma cells (PCs) provide to enduring humoral immunity has been underscored by a number of recent studies. However, little is known about the immediate precursors that give rise to long-lived PCs in the BM of immune individuals. We have identified subsets of antigen-experienced B cells within the immune BM… (More)
