WHAT DOES B-CELL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

B cell

B cells or B lymphocytes are a type of lymphocyte in the humoral immunity of the adaptive immune system. B cells can be distinguished from other lymphocytes, such as T cells and natural killer cells, by the presence of a protein on the B cells outer surface known as a B cell receptor . This specialized receptor protein allows a B cell to bind to a specific antigen. In birds, B cells mature in the bursa of Fabricius. In mammals, immature B cells are formed in the bone marrow. The principal functions of B cells are to make antibodies against antigens, to perform the role of antigen-presenting cells, and to develop into memory B cells after activation by antigen interaction. Recently, a new, suppressive function of B cells has been discovered. B cell development occurs through several stages, each stage representing a change in the genome content at the antibody loci. An antibody is composed of two identical light and two identical heavy chains, and the genes specifying them are found in the 'V' region and the 'C' region.
