B-CELL

A type of lymphocyte normally involved in the manufacture of antibodies to combat infection. It is a precursor to a plasma cell. During infections, individual B-cell clones multiply and are transformed into plasma cells, which manufacture big amounts of antibodies against a special antigen on a foreign microbe. This conversion occurs through interaction with the appropriate CD4 T helper cells.
