The adoptive transfer of antigen-specific B cells into mice that cannot recognize that specific antigen has two main advantages. The first is determining exactly when the B cells were transferred and exposed to antigen. The second is that all B cells that can bind that antigen are the ones that were transferred; no new antigen-specific B cells will emerge from the bone marrow. Thus all B cells that were exposed to the antigen and still alive after at least 4 weeks (8 weeks or more is ideal), are memory B cells.

Splenic B cells from B1-8 mice were prepared with an EasySep Mouse B Cell Enrichment Kit according to the manufacturer’s protocol. Single-cell suspensions were transferred intravenously into tail veins of recipient mice. Approximately 1 million NP+ B cells were transferred per mouse. Approximately 12-24 h after transfer, mice were immunized intra-peritoneally with 50 µg of NP-CGG precipitated in alum.

Materials and Reagents

  1. Mice
    Any donor mice can be used, as long as the donor and recipients have the same background strain (i.e. BALB/C into BALB/c or Bl/6 into Bl/6) to prevent rejection issues. We selected transgenic donor mice that had an increased frequency of B cells specific for our antigen of interest, NP. This way we could be certain of the number of B cells specific for our antigen and these would be easy to identify by flow cytometry and elispot. However, wild-type mice will also respond to NP, just at a lower frequency.
    1. B1.8+/-+/- BALB/c mice
      Note: B1.8 KI BALB/c mice were generated as described (Sonoda et al., 1997) and maintained on the Jκ KO strain (Chen et al., 1993) to enrich the frequency of λ+ NP-specific B cells. B1-8 KI +/+ Jκ KO -/- mice were crossed to BALB/c mice from The Jackson Laboratory (Bar Harbor, ME) to generate B1.8+/-+/- BALB/c mice, which were used for naïve controls and for transfers of NP+ B cells used to generate MBCs.
    2. AM14 Tg x Vκ8R KI BALB/c mice were generated as described (Shlomchik et al., 1993; Hannum et al., 1996; Prak and Weigert, 1995), which were used as recipient mice for primary immunization
      Note: All mice were maintained under specific pathogen-free conditions. The Yale Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee approved all animal experiments.

  2. Immunizations
    For generating memory B cells in a primary response, mice were immunized intra-peritoneally with 50 µg of 4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl acetyl (NP)-Chicken Gamma Globulin (CGG) precipitated in alum. The ratio of NP to CGG ranged between 26 and 33. All mice were immunized at 6-12 week of age

  1. Sterile hood
  2. Refrigerated table top centrifuge
  3. Hemocytometer
  4. “EasySep” magnet (max vol 8 ml; min vol 250 µl) (STEMCELL Technologies, catalog number: 18001 )


  1. Isolation of B cells
    1. Set the centrifuge temperature to 4 °C.
    2. Put one petri dish per spleen on top of ice in an ice bucket with 5 ml of complete media per dish.
    3. Euthanize mice.
    4. Take dead mice to sterile hood to dissect.
    5. Remove spleens. Place the spleen in the petri dish of complete media on ice.
    6. Grind the spleen between the frosted surfaces of the slides until the mixture is fairly uniform. (Alternatives included crushing spleens using the tip of a syringe or using other methods). Rinse the slides with complete media and transfer the remaining liquid through a filter into a 15 ml conical tube. Keep on ice while collecting other spleens.
    7. Centrifuge the cells at 4 °C, 400 RCF, for 10 min.
      Note: This can vary between 8-15 min, depending on the centrifuge, available time, and concern for loss of cells.
    8. Remove tubes from centrifuge. Decant into a container with one swift motion (in the hood, to retain sterility). Resuspend pellet in remaining media after decanting by tapping.
    9. Add ACK (4 ml per spleen) to lyse the red blood cells. Incubate at RT for 4 min. During this incubation, remove connective tissue and membranes of lysed cells, which clump together and look like white filaments or “ghosts”, using a Pasteur pipette.
    10. Fill the conical tube to the top with complete media, invert to mix and centrifuge again at 4 °C, 400 RCF for 10 min.
    11. Vacuum up liquid (under sterile conditions) and resuspend the pellet in remaining media after decanting by tapping. Combine all spleens (keep genders separate).
    12. Count each sample in a hemocytometer. Collect 10 µl aliquot, make a dilution with Trypan blue 1:10 in PBS. Calculate volume needed for 100 x 106 cells/ml.
      (live cells) (dilution) (104) = cells/ml; (cells/ml) (volume) = total cells
      [Total cells]/[100x106 cells/ml] = volume needed for 108 cells/ml
    13. Resuspend to the correct volume in 95% EasySep medium and 5% rat serum at 108 cells/ml.

  2. EasySep B cell enrichment
    Note: Follow manufacturer’s indications, which can change.
    For processing 500 μl-8.0 ml of sample (< 8.0 x 108 cells)
    1. Save an aliquot of cells pre-depletion for FACS.
    2. Prepare cell suspension at 1 x 108 cells/ml in medium with 5% normal rat serum. Place cells in a 14 ml (17 x 100 mm) polystyrene tube.
    3. Add Negative Selection Mouse B cell Enrichment Cocktail at 50 μl/ml. Mix well and incubate on ice for 15 min.
    4. Add Biotin Selection Cocktail at 100 μl/ml. Mix well and incubate on ice for 15 min.
    5. Mix Magnetic Particles to ensure that they are in a uniform suspension by pipetting vigorously 5 times or vortexing quickly. Add the Magnetic Particles at 100 μl/ml. Mix well and incubate on ice for 5 min.
    6. Bring the cell suspension to a total volume of 5 ml (for < 4 x 108 cells) or 10 ml (for 4-8.5 x 108 cells) by adding medium without rat serum. Mix the cells in the tube by pipetting gently 2-3 times.
    7. Place the tube (without cap) into the magnet. Set aside for 5 min at room temperature.
    8. Pick up the magnet and in one continuous motion invert the magnet and tube, pouring off the desired fraction into a new 14 ml tube. Leave the magnet and tube in inverted position for 2-3 sec, and then return to the upright position. Do not shake or blot off any drops that may remain hanging from the mouth of the tube.
    9. Count cells using a hemocytometer.
    10. Check purity and antigen specific cell percentage by flow cytometry.
      1. Save at least 2 x 106 cells for staining.
      2. Place in 96-well plate for staining.
      3. Centrifuge at 280 RCF, 4 °C for 4 min.
      4. Prepare antibody cocktail assuming 50 μl for each sample, antibody mix: NP-APC, CD19-Pacific Blue, CD4-FITC.
      5. Decant residual volume in sink with a quick inversion.
      6. Resuspend pelleted cells in 50 μl of staining media.
      7. Add 50 μl of antibody cocktail to each well.
      8. Mix well with pipette up and down.
      9. Incubate for 20 min on ice, covered with aluminum foil.
      10. Add 100 μl of staining media.
      11. Centrifuge at 280 RCF, 4 °C for 4 min.
      12. Decant residual volume in sink with a quick inversion.
      13. Resuspend pelleted cells in ~175 μl of staining media.
      14. Centrifuge at 280 RCF, 4 °C for 4 min.
      15. Decant residual volume in sink with a quick inversion.
      16. Resuspend pellet in 175 μl of PBS.
      17. Transfer samples from 96-well plate into test tubes immediately before going to the flow cytometry facility.
      18. Add 0.02 μl of EMA per sample right before running on flow cytometer.

  3. Mouse Injection
    Determine number of cells needed. We would transfer 1 million antigen-specific cells per mouse. We would determine the percentage of antigen-specific B cells in a sample by flow cytometry and then transfer the total number of cells accordingly. We also determined the percentage purity of B cells by flow cytometry. The purity of B cells was typically 90%.
    Inject 1 million NP+ B viable cells suspended in transfer buffer per mouse intravenously in 0.2 ml volume.

Representative data

Figure 1. Flow cytometry of splenic cells from AM14-Tg x Vκ8R-KI recipient mice given NP-specific B cells and immunized with NP-CGG in alum, assessed 8 weeks later. Number adjacent to outlined area indicates percent CD19+NP+ antigen-specific B cells among live cells. (from Zuccarino-Catania et al., 2014)

Figure 2. Flow cytometry of splenic B cells from AM14-Tg x Vκ8R-KI mice immunized with NP-CGG in alum without transfer of NP-specific B cells, assessed 8 weeks later as in Figure 1. (from Zuccarino-Catania et al., 2014)


  1. Usually mice are dissected in a sterile hood, so that splenic B cells remain sterile after harvesting. Cells should be kept cold at all times to minimize death and activation prior to transfer (either on ice or in 4 °C fridge).
  2. Another option, instead of B cell enrichment, is to do a complement depletion of T cells. This is a bit cheaper and could yield similar levels of purity. We decided to use the EasySep method from the start and got good results, so we continued with this method. It is important to use a method of enriching B cells, without their activation. We also wanted to avoid transferring T cells from our donor mice, to avoid any rejection issues (our recipients had intact naïve T cells that would help the generation of memory B cells just as well as donor T cells).

将抗原特异性B细胞过继转移到不能识别该特异性抗原的小鼠中具有两个主要优点。 第一种是确切地确定B细胞何时转移并暴露于抗原。 第二是可以结合该抗原的所有B细胞是转移的; 从骨髓中不会出现新的抗原特异性B细胞。 因此,暴露于抗原并在至少4周(8周或更长时间是理想的)后仍存活的所有B细胞是记忆B细胞。
