The immunoglobulin heavy chain 3' regulatory region superenhancer controls mouse B1 B-cell fate and late VDJ repertoire diversity

Abstract : The immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) 3' regulatory region (3'RR) superenhancer controls B2 B-cell IgH transcription and cell fate at the mature stage but not early repertoire diversity. B1 B cells represent a small percentage of total B cells differing from B2 B cells by several points such as precursors, development, functions, and regulation. B1 B cells act at the steady state to maintain homeostasis in the organism and during the earliest phases of an immune response, setting them at the interface between innate and acquired immunity. We investigated the role of the 3'RR superenhancer on B1 B-cell fate. Similar to B2 B cells, the 3'RR controls mu transcription and cell fate in B1 B cells. In contrast to B2 B cells, 3'RR deletion affects B1 B-cell late repertoire diversity. Thus, differences exist for B1 and B2 B-cell 3'RR control during B-cell maturation. For the first time, these results highlight the contribution of the 3'RR superenhancer at this interface between innate and acquired immunity.
