Zhiwei Huang’s group revealed the molecular mechanism of human B-cell receptor in a paper published in ScienceOn August 18th, a paper titled "Cryo-EM structures of two human B cell receptor isotypes " was published in Science by the Zhiwei Huang group from in Harbin Institute of Technology, revealed the assembling and recognition mechanism of BCR complex subunits, and found the assembling pattern of different subtypes of BCR was conserved in the membrane, but different in the exocytosis.
Dr Xiaoming Wang’s group revealed the non-canonical suppressive role of Jmjd1c in the plasma cell differentiation and rheumatoid arthritisB cell differentiation into antibody-producing plasma cells is the essential process of humoral immunity and thus extensive studies have been done to understand the mechanism underlying B cell differentiation. The role of Blimp1, IRF4 and XBP1 as the drivers of plasma cell differentiation has now been well established. In contrast, the mechanism restraining plasma cell differentiation remain incompletely understood. Exaggerated B cell function and plasma cell generation is believed to play a key role in pathogenesis of autoimmune disorders, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
