Answer to Question #63040 in Molecular Biology for Sanjukta Ghosh
Which book should I read to conceptualise B-cell development?
I want to know what Plasmablast,Plasma cell,Memory B,Follicular (FO) B Cell (also known as a B-2 cell), Marginal zone (MZ) B cell,B-1 cell, B-2 cell and Regulatory B (Breg) cell are and their functions?
