Early B cell development and commitment to the B cell lineage occurs in the foetal liver prenatally, before continuing in the bone marrow throughout life. B cells are at the centre of the adaptive humoral immune system and are responsible for mediating the production of antigen-specific immunoglobulin Ig directed against invasive pathogens typically known as antibodies. Several distinct B-cell subsets have been defined that possess distinct functions in both adaptive and innate humoral immune responses. Immunoglobulins consist of two identical heavy and light chains, which are joined by disulphide bonds.

B cell life span: a review
Joel Osteen wants to talk about muting your cell phone at the dinner table. At that point, the Library of Congress can once again decide to prohibit consumers from unlocking their cell phones. Earlier this year, security at major airports was tightened because of a tip that al-Asiri had been working on a cell phone bomb. John B.
Transitional B cells are B cells at an intermediate stage in their development between bone marrow immature cells and mature B cells in the spleen. Primary B cell development takes place in the bone marrow , where immature B cells must generate a functional B cell receptor BCR and overcome negative selection induced by reactivity with autoantigens. The term "transitional B cell" was first used in mouse in for cells that are developmentally intermediate between immature bone marrow B lineage cells and fully mature naive B cells in the peripheral blood and secondary lymphoid tissues. It is postulated that the transitional cells, after leaving the bone marrow, are subjected to peripheral checks to prevent the production of autoantibodies. There are two transitional stages for the B cells in mouse, T1 and T2, with the T1 stage occurring from its migration from the bone marrow to its entry into the spleen, and the T2 stage occurring within the spleen where they developed into mature B cells.
