Type of antigen-specific lymphocyte that produces immunoglobulins (antibodies) and is responsible for humoral immunity. It is produced in the bone marrow (or in the bursa of Fabricius in birds) and develops independently of the thymus. After encounter with antigen, B cells differentiate into antibody-secreting plasma cells.
A white blood cell which produces antibody.
a white blood cell that makes antibodies to fight infections caused by foreign proteins
a lymphocyte or blood cell that produces antibodies that fight infections.
type of lymphocyte that makes antibodies attack germs (bacteria)
Types of lymphocyte that arise in the bone marrow. White blood cell that matures into antibody producing cells when exposed to stimuli.
one of the many components of the body's immune system; a key player in the production of antibodies
a lymphocyte that originates in the bone marrow. After contact with antigen in lymphoid tissues it matures into an antibody-producing plasma cell.
one of two general categories of lymphocytes (white blood cells) involved in the humoral immune response. When help is provided by T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes produce antibodies against specific antigens.
A type of lymphocyte involved in the humoral immune response of vertebrates. Upon recognizing an antigenic determinant, a B cell develops into a plasma cell, which secretes an antibody. (Contrast with a T cell.)
(lymphocytes) White blood cells that develop in the bone marrow and are the source of antibodies. Also known as B lymphocytes. Active in the bodies humoral immunity.
antibody producing blood cell.
a lymphocyte derived from bone marrow that provides humoral immunity; it recognizes free antigen molecules in solution and matures into plasma cells that secrete immunoglobulin (antibodies) that inactivate the antigens
a type of lymphocyte (a specific type of white blood cell). B cells respond to the presence of antigens by dividing and maturing into plasma cells.
A type of white blood cell involved in the production of antibodies. These cells are produced in bone marrow.
A cell produced by the bone marrow that becomes either a memory cell or a plasma cell that forms antibodies against a foreign substance
A certain kind of white blood cell that plays a central role in antibody production.
A type of immune cell that produces antibodies, which recognize and attack antigens on the surface of foreign cells.
An antibody-making lymphocyte (white blood cell) originating in the bone marrow.
cells of the immune system responsible for antibody production.
A type of white blood cell involved in fighting infections. B cells are present in the blood, lymph, and connective tissue. Many types of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma involve abnormal B cells.
Also called 'B lymphocyte.' The type of lymphocyte which produces antibody. Compare with 'T cells.'
See B Lymphocyte.
A white blood cell that makes antibodies and is an important part of the immune system. B cells come from bone marrow. Also called B lymphocyte.
A type of white blood cell derived from bone marrow. B cells are sometimes called B lymphocytes. They secrete antibody and have a number of other complex functions within the human immune system.
A type of lymphocyte (white blood cell) that develops in the bone marrow and produces antibodies that brings about an immune response. B-Cells make antibodies also called immunoglobulins.
A type of white blood cell known as a lymphocyte that expresses membrane bound antibody. B cells specifically interact with antigen, a signal that causes the B cell to develop into an antibody-secreting cell or a memory cell.
(B sell) Type of white blood cell that creates antibodies in response to a specific antigen. It is formed in bone marrow in mammals and is present in blood and lymph. Also called B lymphocyte.
Old Usage: Buffer cell; can be used for some logic macros as well. Located around the periphery of the internal cell block in AMCC Q700 Series arrays and in the Q1500A Array. Capable of a higher row current limit (three times greater) than the logic cells. New Usage: Basic cell, the internal cells in the BiCMOS arrays
A white blood cell that comes from bone marrow. As part of the immune system, B cells make antibodies and help fight infections. Also called B lymphocyte.
a type of lymphocyte which can differentiate into plasma cells. esensitization therapy--treatment in which minute amounts of antigen are injected into an allergic individual in an attempt to cause a decrease in the allergic response directed against that antigen.
a type of lymphocyte, which is an immune system cell. Among its many roles, the B cell produces antibodies that bind antigens.
A specialized white blood cell responsible for the body's immunity. B cells play a central role in antibody production.
A B cell functions both as an antigen-presenting cell and as an effector cell in the humoral immune response. Once activated, it produces and releases antibodies (Janeway et al., 2005).
One of the two major types of lymphocytes (white blood cells), derived from bone marrow lymphocytes. !-- google_ad_client = "pub-6700624969687881"; google_ad_width = 234; google_ad_height = 60; google_ad_format = "234x60_as"; google_ad_type = "text"; google_ad_channel ="7512561969"; google_color_border = "FFFFFF"; google_color_bg = "FFFFFF"; google_color_link = "448079"; google_color_url = "448079"; google_color_text = "414141";
A type of lymphocyte that works as part of the immune system by producing antibodies to fight infection.
B cell (or B lymphocyte) is a type of lymphocyte that matures in the bone marrow and is especially important in humoral immunity. B cells secrete antibodies upon encountering antigen and being activated by helper T cells. B cells are capable of differentiating into plasma B cells and memory B cells. ( NB: B cells are named for the bursa of Fabricius in which they mature in bird species (hence "B"), and not for the bone marrow.)
B cells are lymphocytes that play a large role in the humoral immune response as opposed to the cell-mediated immune response that is governed by T cells. The abbreviation "B" comes from bursa of Fabricius that is an organ in birds in which avian B cells mature. The principal function of B cells is to make antibodies against soluble antigens.
