dc.description.abstractA fast antibody response can be critical to contain rapidly dividing pathogens. This can be achieved by the expansion of antigen-specific B-cells in response to T-cell help followed by differentiation into plasmablasts. MicroRNA-155 (miR-155) is required for optimal T-cell dependent extrafollicular responses via regulation of PU.1, though the cellular processes underlying this defect are largely unknown. Here we show that miR-155 regulates the early expansion of B-blasts and later on the survival and proliferation of plasmablasts in a B-cell intrinsic manner, by tracking antigen-specific B cells in vivo since the onset of antigen stimulation. In agreement, comparative analysis of the transcriptome of miR-155 sufficient and deficient plasmablasts at the peak of the response showed that the main processes regulated by miR-155 were DNA metabolic process, DNA replication and cell cycle. Thus, miR-155 controls the extent of the extra-follicular response by regulating the survival and proliferation of B-blasts, plasmablasts and, consequently, antibody production.
