a cell that produces antibody and is descended from B cells.
A type of white blood cell that produces antibodies.
An antibody-secreting B-lymphocyte.
An activated B cell that secretes antibodies.
An antibody-producing B cell which has reached the end of its differentiation pathway.
a short-lived cell, descended from a B cell that produces antibody.
B-cell that has specialised to produce an antibody
A cell that is derived from the antigen-induced activation and maturation of B lymphocytes. It is the principal antibody producing form of B cells. In myeloma, the tumor cell has the appearance of plasma cells, that is, they are malignant plasma cells, sometimes referred to as myeloma
A lymphocyte-like cell with an eccentrically placed deep-staining nucleus. The nuclear chromatin is distributed in a "wheel-spoke" fashion. The cytoplasm is deep blue with a lighter halo about the nucleus.
An antibody-secreting cell that developed from a B cell. The effector cell of the humoral immune system.
Antibody-secreting immune cell that develops from a B cell.
a lymphocyte-like cell that develops from a B lymphocyte in reaction to a specific antigen; found in bone marrow and sometimes in the blood
a mature B lymphocyte that is specialized for antibody (immunoglobulin) production
an antibody producing, mature B cell found in lymphoid tissue.
terminal differentiation stage of B lineage cells, specialized for the secretion of large amounts of antibodies.
A terminally differentiated antibody forming and usually antibody secreting, cell of the B-cell lineage.
Type of cell normally present in the body. It is responsible for making antibodies(immunoglobulins) that fight infection and help destroy cancer cells. When the immune system loses control over the plasma cell, it becomes cancerous. Thus, the term plasma cell dyscrasia.
A type of white blood cell. Many B-cells mature into plasma cells, which can produce antibodies.
The malignant cell in myeloma. Normal plasma cells produce antibodies to fight infection. In myeloma, the malignant plasma cells produce large amounts of abnormal antibodies which lack the capability to fight infection. The abnormal antibodies are the monoclonal protein, or M-protein. Plasma cells also produce other chemicals which can result in organ and tissue damage (i.e. anaemia, kidney damage and nerve damage).
Any of the antibody-secreting cells found in lymphoid tissue and derived from B cells upon lymphokine stimulation and reaction with a specific antigen. Also called plasmacyte.
A cell derived from the B-lymphocyte that produces antibodies.
An antibody-producing cell derived from a B-lymphocyte.
a type of white blood cell that helps protect against infection.
derivative of a B lymphocyte which secretes antibodies.
a type of blood cell that produces antibodies. Plasma cells develop from B-cells in response to stimulation by an antigen.
An antibody secreting cell derived from an antigen activated B cell.
End-stage differentiation of a B cell to an antibody-producing cell.
Cell derived from B lymphoctyes which secretes antibodies
Particular kind of lymph cells. Normal plasma cells produce antibodies against foreign pathogens such as infection pathogens. With multiple myeloma/plasmacytoma, there is unhindered multiplication of sick plasma cells that produce atypical and ineffective antibodies.
Plasma cells (also called plasma B cells or plasmocytes) are cells of the immune system that secrete large amounts of antibodies. They differentiate from B cells upon stimulation by CD4+ lymphocytes. The B cell acts as an antigen presenting cell (APC), consuming an offending pathogen.
