See B Lymphocytes.
lymphocytes that bear immunoglobulin and under appropriate conditions differentiate into antibody-secreting cells.
White blood cells or lymphocytes that are part of the immune system and concerned with the production of antibodies. See also: T cells See also: NK cells
Type of lymphocytes that are responsible for producing antibodies.
A major class of lymphocytes whose main function is to produce and secrete antibodies.
White blood cells, also know as B lymphocytes, that develop in the bone marrow and are capable of producing antibodies.
Lymphocytes capable of differentiating into plasma cells, which produce antibodies.
one of the two major classes of lymphocytes; during infections, B cells mature into plasma cells, which produce antibodies directed at specific antigens.
Specialised cells of the immune system which help to fight infections by making antibodies. They are also called B-lymphocytes. In Type 1 diabetes, they help the T cells to kill the beta cells by making antibodies targeted specifically at the beta cells – these are called autoantibodies.
Lymphocytes that develop in the bone marrow. In response to antigens, B cells produce antibodies. Also known as B-lymphocytes.
Small white blood cells that help the body defend itself against infection. These cells are produced in bone marrow and develop into plasma cells that produce antibodies. Also known as B-lymphocytes.
Lymphocytes that produce antibodies. 716, 791
Antibody-producing white blood cells, which mature in the bone marrow. The letter B originally came from bursa of Fabricius where B lymphocytes originate in chickens, but has subsequently been extended to imply the bone marrow.
white blood cells that produce antibodies which are important to the body's defense against foreign invaders.
A specific kind of white blood cell that produces antibodies.
white blood cells of the immune system that produce infection-fighting proteins called antibodies.
Type of lymphocyte responsible for antibody-mediated immunity; mature in the bone marrow and circulate in the circulatory and lymph systems where they transform into antibody-producing plasma cells when exposed to antigens.
Type of lymphocyte (white cell) that helps produce antibodies that destroy foreign substances.
cells that make and carry surface immunoglobulins.
Small white blood cells crucial to the immune defenses. Also known as B lymphocytes (Read about " The Lymph System"), they are derived from bone marrow and develop into plasma cells that are the source of antibodies.
immune cells that mature in the bone marrow
White blood cells that make antibodies. Some forms of lymphoma are made of B cells.
One of the immune system's cell types; B cells fight infection primarily by making antibodies. During the time of infection, these cells are transformed into factories that make thousands of antibodies against the foreign antigen.
White blood cells that have not travelled to the thymus (see T cells). B cells are responsible for many immune functions, such as producing proteins called antibodies that tag invaders for destruction. B cells respond to the presence of antigens by dividing and maturing into plasma cells.
small white blood cells crucial to the immune defenses. Also known as B lymphocytes, they come from bone marrow and develop into blood cells called plasma cells, which are the source of antibodies.
Named for bone marrow, these lymphocytes differentiate into antibody-producing cells
Cells that produce antibodies to attack foreign substances in the body.
Type of lymphocyte especially involved in the production of antibodies.
Lymphocytes that produce large quantities of antibodies when stimulated by a particular anitigen; control the humoral (blood) immune response.
White blood cells that develop in the bone marrow and are the source of antibodies. Also known as B lymphocytes.
Lymphocytes which develop in the bone marrow in adults and produce antibody. They can be subdivided into two groups, B1 and B2. B1 cells use minimally mutated receptors which are close to the germline immunoglobulin sequences, whereas B2 cells are the major responding population in conventional immune responses to protein antigens.
White blood cells that develop from bone marrow and produce antibodies. Also called B lymphocytes.
Lymphocytes which transform into plasma cells and produce antibodies.
