Engraving our first B cell memories into the repertoire

Research output: Contribution to journalShort SurveyOtherpeer-review


Memory B cells are central to effective protection against reinfection. Glaros et al. used single-cell techniques to illuminate how activated mouse B cells are diverted into forming memory cells a few days post-immunogenic exposure. Early memory subsets contribute to a crucial goal: building a diverse and agile humoral defense system.
