Example text

For example, genetic or metabolic defects that alter serum cholesterol levels, cellular uptake, or cholesterol biosynthesis could lead to elevations in the cholesterol content of the plasma membrane of immature or transitional B lymphocytes. If membrane cholesterol did increase, immature B lymphocytes might then be able to organize lipid rafts, imparting on them a more mature B lymphocyte-signaling phenotype that could compromise their sensitivity to negative selection, thereby affecting the elimination of self-reactive B lymphocytes in the bone marrow and/or periphery.

However, recent studies suggest these clear relationships and necessary localization to peripheral compartments may be more fuzzy. Although it is likely that the T1 ! T2 ! , 2004). Regardless, the opportunity to sample bone marrow and peripheral selfantigens and thereby identify self-reactive B lymphocytes during the immature stage would still exist in all models. Allman et al. (2001) described a potential third nonproliferating transitional subset, termed T3, which resembles T2 cells with the exception of a lower level of sIgM.

This second observation fits with earlier studies of Carsetti et al. (1995) who showed that hapten-reactive immature B lymphocytes are deleted only in the periphery, despite expression of antigen in the bone marrow, suggesting that the fate decision between deletion and receptor editing might be influenced by the location at which antigen encounter occurs. 2. Interactions between transitional B lymphocytes and CD4 T helper cells The previous studies argue that the BCR-induced intrinsic program of the immature-stage B lymphocytes can be altered by extrinsic factors so that autoreactive B lymphocytes have the opportunity to avoid clonal deletion Fate Decisions During B Lymphopoiesis 29 and instead adapt by altering the specificity of their BCR by receptor editing.
