B-cells are a type of white cells called b- lymphocyto. B-cells which are from bone marrow and developed into plasma cells. Plasma cells are a good source of antibodies. B-cells do not produce antibodies until they become fully activated. The body makes different types of B-cells that circulate in the blood each day
B-cells make Y-shaped proteins called antibodies. Antibodies is a blood protein produced in response to and counteracting a specific antigen Antibodies stick to the surface of the antigen of a germ. The germ is creating a clump telling the body that there an intruder. Your body reacts and makes a toxic substance to fight them.
B cells mature in bone marrow B cell needs proteins produced to the T cells to become fully activated and going. Bone marrow is a spongy, fatty tissue that houses stem cells. These stem cells transform themselves into white blood cells These are located inside a few large bones.
B-cells special proteins are antibodies. Antibodies circulate in the blood stream and can appear anywhere in the body Antibodies can be used to explain recovery from infection by bacteria. They identify bad bacteria Antibiotics do not work on viruses because viruses are not alive.
B-cells are associated with diabetes. The (NOD) mouse has become the most favored model for type I diabetes. NOD stands for None Obese Diabetic mice. B-cells can have a couple roles in diabetes and possibly other diseases. B-cells are also associated with cancer
B-cells are found in the bone marrow They move to the spleen to continue to mature After they have matured they then go in the blood stream The B-cells then get ready to attack the infections.
