CXCL13 – also known as BLC in the mouse and BCA-1 in the human – is a chemokine with high selectivity for B lymphocytes. In seeking primers for detection of human CXCL13, we read the report by Sansonno et al. This work describes expression of CXCL13 in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-associated mixed cryoglobulinemia.
