Which book will give a brief account about B-cell development so that it covers two questions about the following cells:

  • Plasmablast
  • Plasma cell
  • Memory B cell
  • Marginal zone (MZ) B cell
  • B-1 cell
  • B-2 cell
  • Regulatory B (Breg) cell

    1. Where do they lie in the course of B-cell development and differentiation?

    2. What are their functions (outline)?

P.S. I need to know the development part in details rather than the functions.

  • $\begingroup$ amazon.in/Kuby-Immunology-International-Judy-Owen/dp/1464137846/… I feel is the best for learning.. But as said, for something like immunology, you must complement a text with nature reviews $\endgroup$ – Polisetty Oct 31 '16 at 1:20

    $\begingroup$ You should probably check out a review. Most basic textbooks will not delve into the various subtypes. Wikipedia has entries on all these types of cells. Did you not find that informative? $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Oct 31 '16 at 8:11

    $\begingroup$ @WYSIWYG Not really, that's why I posted here. Besides I'm skeptic about wikipedia. It doesn't always contain the right information. $\endgroup$ – Tyto alba Oct 31 '16 at 8:15

    $\begingroup$ I have been through it once before. That's related but not duplicate. It's a more broad question. $\endgroup$ – Tyto alba Oct 31 '16 at 8:53

    $\begingroup$ @WYSIWYG Thank you but I don't have access to the review article. Besides I've edited the body to make more suited to Bio SE.. $\endgroup$ – Tyto alba Nov 4 '16 at 20:51

The best immunology book hands down is Janeway's Immunobiology. There is no debate among the immunology community. The middle section is devoted to B cell development.

I have found a book that explains in a quiet simple way the entire B-cell development and differentiation stepwise and covers the two questions I was looking for. It is Kuby Immunology, 7th Edition.

Except the Breg cells which is a recent discovery every cell was well discussed. I went through this to learn what the functions of B reg are.
