Clonally expanded B cells in multiple sclerosis bind EBV EBNA1 and GlialCAM. Nature. 2022 Mar;603(7900):321-327. doi: 10.1038/s41586-022-04432-7. PMCID: PMC9382663.

We analyze the single cell B cell repertoire in cerebro-spinal fluid and blood of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and demonstrate that Epstein-Bar virus (EBV) contributes to MS via molecular mimicry.

Brewer RC, Ramadoss NS, Lahey LJ, Jahanbani S, Robinson WH*, Lanz TV*. BNT162b2 vaccine induces divergent B cell responses to SARS-CoV-2 S1 and S2.  Nature Immunology.  2022, 23(1):33-39. doi: 10.1038/s41590-021-01088-9. PMCID: PMC8776031

We discern the acute B cell response to RBD and S2 protein in SARS-CoV-2 vaccinated individuals, using single-cell RNA sequencing, single-cell B cell repertoire sequencing, and analyses of human-derived monoclonal antibodies.
