The EasySep™ Mouse B Cell Isolation Kit is designed to isolate B cells from single-cell suspensions of splenocytes or other tissues by negative selection. Unwanted cells are targeted for removal with biotinylated antibodies directed against non-B cells and streptavidin-coated magnetic particles (RapidSpheres™ ). Labeled cells are separated using and EasySep™ magnet without the use of columns. Desired cells are poured off into a new tube.

For isolation of B cells expressing CD11b or CD43, we recommend using the EasySep™ Mouse Pan-B Cell Isolation kit (Catalog #19844).

This product replaces the EasySep™ Mouse B Cell Enrichment Kit (Catalog #19754) for even faster cell isolations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can EasySep™ Streptavidin RapidSpheres™ be used for either positive or negative selection?

Currently, EasySep™ Streptavidin RapidSphere™ kits are only available for negative selection and work by targeting and removing unwanted cells.

How does the separation work?

Streptavidin RapidSphere™ magnetic particles are crosslinked to unwanted cells using biotinylated antibodies. When placed in the EasySep™ Magnet, labeled cells migrate to the wall of the tube. The unlabeled cells are then poured off into a new tube.

Which columns do I use?

The EasySep™ procedure is column-free. That's right - no columns!

How can I analyze the purity of my enriched sample?

The Product Information Sheet provided with each EasySep™ kit contains detailed staining information.

Can EasySep™ Streptavidin RapidSphere™ separations be automated?

Yes. RoboSep™, the fully automated cell separator, automates all EasySep™ labeling and cell separation steps.

Are cells isolated using EasySep™ RapidSphere™ products FACS-compatible?

Yes. Desired cells are unlabeled and ready to use in downstream applications, such as FACS analysis.

Can I alter the separation time in the magnet?

Yes; however, this may impact the kit's performance. The provided EasySep™ protocols have already been optimized to balance purity, recovery and time spent on the isolation.

Disruption of the Myc-PDE4B regulatory circuitry impairs B-cell lymphoma survival.

J. Nam et al.


A large body of evidence suggests that B-cell lymphomas with enhanced Myc expression are associated with an aggressive phenotype and poor prognosis, which makes Myc a compelling therapeutic target. Phosphodiesterase 4B (PDE4B), a main hydrolyzer of cyclic AMP (cAMP) in B cells, was shown to be involved in cell survival and drug resistance in diffuse large B cell lymphomas (DLBCL). However, the interrelationship between Myc and PDE4B remains unclear. Here, we first demonstrate the presence of the Myc-PDE4B feed-forward loop, in which Myc and PDE4B mutually reinforce the expression of each other. Next, the combined targeting of Myc and PDE4 synergistically prevented the proliferation and survival of B lymphoma cells in vitro and in a mouse xenograft model. We finally recapitulated this combinatorial effect in Emu-myc transgenic mice; co-inhibition of Myc and PDE4 suppressed lymphomagenesis and restored B cell development to the wild type level that was associated with marked reduction in Myc levels, unveiling the critical role of the Myc-PDE4B amplification loop in the regulation of Myc expression and the pathogenesis of B cell lymphoma. These findings suggest that the disruption of the Myc-PDE4B circuitry can be exploited in the treatment of B cell malignancies.

Migrant memory B cells secrete luminal antibody in the vagina.

J. E. Oh et al.


Antibodies secreted into mucosal barriers serve to protect the host from a variety of pathogens, and are the basis for successful vaccines1. In type I mucosa (such as the intestinal tract), dimeric IgA secreted by local plasma cells is transported through polymeric immunoglobulin receptors2 and mediates robust protection against viruses3,4. However, owing to the paucity of polymeric immunoglobulin receptors and plasma cells, how and whether antibodies are delivered to the type II mucosa represented by the lumen of the lower female reproductive tract remains unclear. Here, using genital herpes infection in mice, we show that primary infection does not establish plasma cells in the lamina propria of the female reproductive tract. Instead, upon secondary challenge with herpes simplex virus 2, circulating memory B cells that enter the female reproductive tract serve as the source of rapid and robust antibody secretion into the lumen of this tract. CD4 tissue-resident memory T cells secrete interferon-gamma, which induces expression of chemokines, including CXCL9 and CXCL10. Circulating memory B cells are recruited to the vaginal mucosa in a CXCR3-dependent manner, and secrete virus-specific IgG2b, IgG2c and IgA into the lumen. These results reveal that circulating memory B cells act as a rapidly inducible source of mucosal antibodies in the female reproductive tract.

TET enzymes augment activation-induced deaminase (AID) expression via 5-hydroxymethylcytosine modifications at the Aicda superenhancer.

C.-W. J. Lio et al.


TET enzymes are dioxygenases that promote DNA demethylation by oxidizing the methyl group of 5-methylcytosine to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC). Here, we report a close correspondence between 5hmC-marked regions, chromatin accessibility and enhancer activity in B cells, and a strong enrichment for consensus binding motifs for basic region-leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factors at TET-responsive genomic regions. Functionally, Tet2 and Tet3 regulate class switch recombination (CSR) in murine B cells by enhancing expression of Aicda, which encodes the activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) enzyme essential for CSR. TET enzymes deposit 5hmC, facilitate DNA demethylation, and maintain chromatin accessibility at two TET-responsive enhancer elements, TetE1 and TetE2, located within a superenhancer in the Aicda locus. Our data identify the bZIP transcription factor, ATF-like (BATF) as a key transcription factor involved in TET-dependent Aicda expression. 5hmC is not deposited at TetE1 in activated Batf-deficient B cells, indicating that BATF facilitates TET recruitment to this Aicda enhancer. Our study emphasizes the importance of TET enzymes for bolstering AID expression and highlights 5hmC as an epigenetic mark that captures enhancer dynamics during cell activation.

Activated Peyer's patch B cells sample antigen directly from M cells in the subepithelial dome.

R. J. Komban et al.


The germinal center (GC) reaction in Peyer's patches (PP) requires continuous access to antigens, but how this is achieved is not known. Here we show that activated antigen-specific CCR6+CCR1+GL7- B cells make close contact with M cells in the subepithelial dome (SED). Using in situ photoactivation analysis of antigen-specific SED B cells, we find migration of cells towards the GC. Following antigen injection into ligated intestinal loops containing PPs, 40{\%} of antigen-specific SED B cells bind antigen within 2 h, whereas unspecifc cells do not, indicating B cell-receptor involvment. Antigen-loading is not observed in M cell-deficient mice, but is unperturbed in mice depleted of classical dendritic cells (DC). Thus, we report a M cell-B cell antigen-specific transporting pathway in PP that is independent of DC. We propose that this antigen transporting pathway has a critical role in gut IgA responses, and should be taken into account when developing mucosal vaccines.

TRAF2 Deficiency in B Cells Impairs CD40-Induced Isotype Switching That Can Be Rescued by Restoring NF-$\kappa$B1 Activation.

R. A. Woolaver et al.


Effective humoral immunity requires class switch recombination (CSR) catalyzed by activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID). In response to T cell-dependent (TD) Ags, CSR can be induced by CD40 signaling in B cells. TNFR-associated factors 2 and 3 (TRAF2/TRAF3) function as adaptors of the CD40 signaling pathway. B cell-intrinsic TRAF2 or TRAF3 (B-TRAF2 or B-TRAF3) knockout mice were previously reported to have indistinguishable phenotypes in gene expression, B cell survival and development, and enlarged peripheral lymphoid organs. However, it remains unknown whether deficiency of B-TRAF2 or B-TRAF3 differentially affects TD humoral immune responses and CD40-induced CSR. In this article, we show that B-TRAF2 is essential for optimal isotype switching induced by in vivo TD Ag immunization or by engaging CD40 in vitro. Our data clarify the controversial role of B-TRAF3 and confirm its dispensability in CD40-induced CSR. Mechanistically, CD40-induced AID expression was markedly impaired by B-TRAF2, but not B-TRAF3, deficiency. Moreover, B-TRAF2 deficiency causes defective activation of the NF-$\kappa$B1 complex in a CD40-autonomous manner, and restoring CD40-induced NF-$\kappa$B1 activation in TRAF2-deficient B cells rescues AID expression and CSR. We conclude that TRAF2 is essential but TRAF3 is dispensable for TD humoral immunity and CD40-induced CSR. Our studies provide significant biological bases for optimizing treatment of B cell-associated immune disorders by targeting CD40 signaling.
