During their development, B and T cells with self-reactive antigen receptors are generally deleted from the repertoire to avoid autoimmune diseases. Paradoxically, innate-like B-1 cells in mice are positively selected for self-reactivity and form a pool of long-lived, self-renewing B cells that produce most of the circulating natural IgM antibodies. This Review provides an overview of the developmental processes that shape the B-1 cell pool in mice, outlines the functions of B-1 cells in both… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Innate control of B cell responses.
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of the interplay between the innate immune system and B cells, particularly at the mucosal interface are discussed and the role of innate signals in the regulation of Ig diversification and production is reviewed. Expand
B-1 cell responses to infections.
TLDR
The unresolved question to what extent BCR engagement, that is, antigen-specificity versus innate signaling contributes to B-1 cell's participation in tissue homeostasis and immuneDefense as providers of 'natural' and antigen-induced antibody responses, and as cytokine-producing immune regulators is discussed. Expand
B-1 Cell Heterogeneity and the Regulation of Natural and Antigen-Induced IgM Production
TLDR
This review considers three factors that may contribute to functional heterogeneity among innate-like B cells: first, developmental differences regarding the origins of the precursors, second, tissue-specific signals that may differentially affect B-1 cells in the tissue compartments, and finally responsiveness to self-antigens as well as innate and antigen- specific signals. Expand
B-1a cells acquire their unique characteristics by bypassing the pre-BCR selection stage
TLDR
The authors show that reduced interleukin-7 in developing fetal liver-derived pro-B cells induces premature immunoglobulin κ rearrangement, alleviating the requirement for a pre-BCR selection stage and allowing the generation of autoreactive B1-a B cells. Expand
B-1a cells acquire their unique characteristics by bypassing the pre-BCR selection stage
TLDR
This work shows that in the fetal liver (FL) versus bone marrow (BM) environment, reduced IL-7R/STAT5 levels promote immunoglobulin kappa (Igk) recombination at the early pro-B cell stage, which enables the production of B cells with self reactive, skewed specificity receptors that are peculiar to the B-1a compartment.

TLDR
B-1 cells, an innate-like B cell population distinct in development, repertoire, and tissue location from the majority conventional or B-2 cells, are the main contributors of natural antibodies in mice in steady state, and recent data show that natural IgM production appears largely confined to B-1 cell populations in the spleen and bone marrow. Expand
Natural IgM and the Development of B Cell-Mediated Autoimmune Diseases.
TLDR
An unexpected and distinct role for sIgM is demonstrated in the control of autoreactive B cells: the regulation of bone marrow B cell development and this finding strongly suggests that IgM is critical for B-cell central tolerance induction. Expand
Immune regulatory function of B cells.
TLDR
The factors that are important for Breg differentiation and for their effector function in both mouse and human are discussed. Expand
CTLA-4 expression by B-1a B cells is essential for immune tolerance
TLDR
Findings show that CTLA-4 regulation of B-1a cells is a crucial immune-regulatory mechanism that regulates these early-developing B cells that express a repertoire enriched for auto-reactivity. Expand
B-1 Cells Carry the Memory of Neonatal Immune Imprinting.
TLDR
The ability of long-lived B-1 cells to be programmed by microbial colonization and early life immunization to uniquely incorporate GlcNAc reactivity in mice is demonstrated, establishing their critical role in mediating neonatal immune imprinting. Expand

Positive selection of natural autoreactive B cells.
TLDR
A murine model system of naturally generated autoreactive B cells with a germ line gene-encoded specificity for the Thy-1 (CD90) glycoprotein was developed, in which the presence of self-antigen promotes B cell accumulation and serum autoantibody secretion. Expand

B-1 (CD5+) B cells constitute a phenotypic and functionally distinct population of B cells in mouse that show enriched expression of autoreactive B-cell antigen receptors and that produce severalExpand
Autoimmunity-prone B-1 (CD5 B) cells, natural antibodies and self recognition.
TLDR
The recent findings suggest that while in healthy subjects the majority of natural polyreactive antibodies is encoded in V genes in germline configuration, some polyre active antibodies are encoded in somatically mutated V genes, in a fashion consistent with an antigen-driven process of selection of such mutations. Expand
B-1 cells modulate oral tolerance in mice.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that B-1 cells have regulatory properties and are involved in the induction of oral tolerance to OVA, and are able to suppress local hypersensitivity reaction and lymphoproliferative cellular response observed in BALB/Xid mice. Expand
Origins and functions of B-1 cells with notes on the role of CD5.
TLDR
Evidence indicates that B-1a cells can derive from adult precursors expressing an appropriate specificity when the (self-) antigen is present, and the CD5 molecule can function as a negative regulator of BCR signaling that may help prevent inappropriate activation of autoreactive B- 1a cells. Expand
Role of B-1a cells in autoimmunity.
TLDR
This review will discuss the current understandings of their role in autoimmune diseases with focus on lupus and an unbiased analysis of V-H-D-J(H) sequences from B- 1a, B-1b, and conventional B cells. Expand
A checkpoint for autoreactivity in human IgM+ memory B cell development
TLDR
It is concluded that a third checkpoint selects against self-reactivity during IgM+ memory B cell development in humans and was implemented before the onset of somatic hypermutation. Expand
Reduced life span of anergic self-reactive B cells in a double- transgenic model
TLDR
It was concluded that anergic B cells have a markedly decreased life span in the periphery, associated with the anergic state per se, the serum concentration of HEL being important only in attaining the critical threshold necessary for tolerance induction. Expand
Marginal zone and B1 B cells unite in the early response against T-independent blood-borne particulate antigens.
TLDR
Splenic MZ and B1 B cells endowed with a "natural memory" provide a bridge between the very early innate and the later appearing adaptive immune response. Expand
CD5-Mediated Negative Regulation of Antigen Receptor-Induced Growth Signals in B-1 B Cells
TLDR
In CD5-deficient mice, B-1 cells responded to mIgM crosslinking by developing a resistance to apoptosis and entering the cell cycle, indicating the B cell receptor-mediated signaling is negatively regulated by CD5 in normal B- 1 cells. Expand
