B Lymphocyte Chemoattractant (BLC)

B Lymphocyte Chemoattractant (BLC, CXCL13) is a chemokine that, through its interaction with the receptor CXCR5, is a chemoattractant for B lymphocytes. BLC controls the organization of B cells within follicles of lymphoid tissues. It is secreted by dendritic cells, and is expressed highly in the liver, spleen, lymph nodes, and gut of humans.
