Example text

In AL amyloidosis patients, immunoglobulin light chain variable regions were found to be hypermutated and mutations were not associated with intraclonal diversification within the bone marrow, indicating that amyloidogenic light chains undergo antigen-driven selection [127]. These data suggest that amyloidogenic clones may arise from a neoplastic transformation of differentiated B lymphoid elements selected during antibody response to a T-cell-dependent antigen [127, 128]. Recently, this type of analysis has also been extended to peripheral blood B cells, leading to the identification of some degree of intraclonal variation in circulating clones compared to bone marrow clones.
