B-cells

B cells are lymphocytes (a class of white blood cells) that play a large role in the adaptive immune system by making antibodies to identify and neutralize invading pathogens like bacteria and viruses. Specifically, B cells play a prominent role in the humoral immune response, as opposed to the cell-mediated immune response that is governed by T cells, another type of lympocyte. All of the plasma cells descended from a single B cell produce the same antibody which is directed against the antigen that stimulated it to mature.
