Nuclear factor kappa B is required for the development of marginal zone B lymphocytes.

Cariappa A, Liou HC, Horwitz BH, Pillai S - J. Exp. Med. (2000)

Bottom Line: Although immunoglobulin (Ig)M(hi)IgD(lo/-)CD21(hi) marginal zone B cells represent a significant proportion of naive peripheral splenic B lymphocytes, few of the genes that regulate their development have been identified.In contrast, steady-state levels of IgD(hi) splenic follicular B cells are not significantly reduced in the absence of NF-kappa Bp50, NF-kappa Bp65, or c-Rel.Reconstitution of B cells in Rag-2(-/-) mice with a mixture of p50(-/-)/p65(-/-) fetal liver cells and Rag-2(-/-) bone marrow cells revealed that the generation of marginal zone B cells requires the expression of NF-kappa B in developing B cells, as opposed to supporting cells.

ABSTRACT
Although immunoglobulin (Ig)M(hi)IgD(lo/-)CD21(hi) marginal zone B cells represent a significant proportion of naive peripheral splenic B lymphocytes, few of the genes that regulate their development have been identified. This subset of peripheral B cells fails to emerge in mice that lack nuclear factor (NF)-kappa Bp50. Less drastic reductions in marginal zone B cell numbers are also seen in the spleens of recombination activating gene (Rag)-2(-/-) mice reconstituted with NF-kappa Bp65(-/-) fetal liver cells and in c-Rel(-/-) mice. In contrast, steady-state levels of IgD(hi) splenic follicular B cells are not significantly reduced in the absence of NF-kappa Bp50, NF-kappa Bp65, or c-Rel. Reconstitution of B cells in Rag-2(-/-) mice with a mixture of p50(-/-)/p65(-/-) fetal liver cells and Rag-2(-/-) bone marrow cells revealed that the generation of marginal zone B cells requires the expression of NF-kappa B in developing B cells, as opposed to supporting cells.
