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

Aging is accompanied by a reduction in the generation of B lymphocytes leading to impaired immune responses. In this study, we have investigated whether the decline in B lymphopoiesis is due to age-related defects in the hematopoietic stem cell compartment. The ability of hematopoietic stem cells from old mice to generate B cells, as measured in vitro, is decreased 2-5-fold, while myeloid potential remains unchanged. This age-related decrease in B-cell potential is more marked in common lymphoid progenitors (CLP) and was associated with reduced expression of the B-lineage specifying factors, EBF and Pax5. Notably, retrovirus-mediated expression of EBF complemented the age-related loss of B-cell potential in CLP isolated from old mice. Furthermore, transduction of CLP from old mice with a constitutively active form of STAT5 restored both EBF and Pax5 expression and increased B-cell potential. These results are consistent with a mechanism, whereby reduced expression of EBF with age decreases the frequency with which multipotent hematopoietic progenitors commit to a B-cell fate, without altering their potential to generate myeloid cells.
