Fig. 14: Differentiation of B-lymphocytes into Plasma Cells and B-Memory Cells

The B-lymphocytes now differentiate into antibody-secreting B-lymphocytes and plasma cells that secrete large quantities of antibodies that "fit" the original epitope. Some B-lymphocytes differentiate into B-memory cells capable of anamnestic response.
