Abstract

Given the ability of the B cell compartment to acquire tolerance to self we cannot explain why spontaneous humoral tolerance does not arise following transplantation. Here we review the fundamental mechanisms of B cell tolerance that operate in development and direct the reader to possible mechanisms that may explain how B cell tolerance fails to develop following transplantation.
