Systematic name M4885
Brief description Genes down-regulated in comparison of naive follicular B cells versus early germinal center (GC) B cells.
Full description or abstract Upon immunization with a T cell dependent antigen naive follicular B cells (Fo) are activated and a germinal center reaction is induced. Within the next 2 weeks large germinal centers develop where the process of affinity maturation takes place. To analyze the gene expression profile of resting and activated B cells, follicular B cells (Fo), B cells from early (GC1) and late germinal centers (GC2) were isolated and their gene expression profile compared.
