The production of IgE antibodies is known to be regulated by isotype-specific mechanisms that are not antigen specific. During the last decade several studies have indicated that soluble factors with affinity for IgE (IgE-binding factors, IgE-BFs) may exert such a role by interacting with IgE-bearing B lymphocytes. In the human, some of these IgE-BFs appear to be identical to soluble CD23, a B-cell surface marker thought to be involved in the control of B-cell proliferation or differentiation. In this article, Guy Delespesse and colleagues summarize several new findings regarding the cellular origin, structure and function of IgE-BFs/sCd23. © 1989.
