Pr. Joan YUAN (Lund University – Division of molecular hematology
Lund – SWEDEN) : “ Long-term lineage tracing of neonatal B cells in health and disease ”.

A wave of long-lived B cells enter the B cell lineage shortly after birth. These early life derived B cells are unevenly scattered across different anatomical locations and are often tissue resident. Their selection into the neonatal B cell repertoire occurs under relaxed tolerance constraints in a Lin28b dependent Fashion (1). Our findings reveal a new way of stratifying the adult B cell compartment, based on cellular turnover, with important implications in health and disease
(1) Vanhee et al. Lin28b controls a neonatal to adult switch in B cell positive selection. 2019, Science Immunology
