B-cells (or B lymphocytes) are a category of white blood cells that express clonally diverse B-cell receptors (BCRs) which recognize specific antigenic epitopes. B lymphocytes also play a critical role in the adaptive humoral immune system by producing and secreting antigen-specific immunoglobulin (Ig) (generally referred as antibodies). Development of B-cells begins with the differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) located in the fetal liver and bone marrow that ultimately give rise to the B-cell lineage. Each stage of B-cell development is mainly characterized by the expression and rearrangement of BCR components.

Why Boster?

Get better results with Boster!

Boster takes great measures to ensure product quality and to provide our customers with comprehensive data upfront. Our antibodies are validated using WB, IHC, and flow cytometry against a panel of over 250 tissues and un-transfected cell lines to ensure high affinity and crystal-clear IHC stains. In addition, we also validate our antibodies in a quantitative fashion by testing them on known quantities of recombinant proteins so that you know what to expect (e.g. if there is 1ng, 2.5ng or 5ng of the target protein in the sample). Every product is covered by the Boster Quality Guarantee, click below to learn more.
