Enhancement and suppression of signaling by the conserved tail of IgG memory-type B cell antigen receptors

Horikawa, Keisuke; Martin, Stephen; Pogue, Sarah; Silver, Karlee; Peng, Kaimen; Takatsu, Kiyoshi; Goodnow, Christopher

Description

Immunological memory is characterized by heightened immunoglobulin (Ig) G antibody production caused in part by enhanced plasma cell formation conferred by conserved transmembrane and cytoplasmic segments in isotype-switched IgG B cell receptors. We tested the hypothesis that the IgG tail enhances intracellular B cell antigen receptor (BCR) signaling responses to antigen by analyzing B cells from Ig transgenic mice with IgM receptors or chimeric IgMG receptors containing the IgG tail segment....[Show more]
