A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

B cell activating factor (BCAF) was initially identified in the supernatant of the murine T helper cell clone 52-3 (52-3 SN) because of its ability to promote activation and proliferation of resting B cells in the absence of any other costimulus. In this paper, we show that 52-3 T helper cells also secrete IL-4 and IL-5 and we have analyzed the influence of these two lymphokines on B cell proliferation induced by BCAF-containing 52-3 SN. Using the neutralizing anti-IL-4 monoclonal antibody 11B11, we observed partial inhibition of B cell proliferation. 52-3 SN free of IL-4 prepared using an immunoabsorbent column was still able to induce significant B cell proliferation. Although recombinant IL-4 alone does not induce B cell proliferation, it increased the proliferation induced by IL-4-free 52-3 SN. Kinetic studies showed that IL-4 is required at the start of B cell cultures in order to exert optimal synergistic effects. In contrast, anti-IL-5 monoclonal antibody NC17 did not affect the B cell proliferative activity of 52-3 SN whether or not IL-4 was present. When 52-3 SN was tested on dextran-sulfate-activated B cells, IL-5 and BCAF activities were detected but only the IL-5 activity was neutralized by monoclonal antibody NC17. These results demonstrate that (i) BCAF-containing SN can induce proliferation of resting B cells independently of IL-4 and IL-5, and (ii) IL-4, but not IL-5, can act synergistically with BCAF to induce B cell proliferation.
