An Abelson virus-transformed murine pre-B cell line class-switched from μ to γ3 or γ2b at the pre-b stage during culture. A class-swtich was mediated by the deletion mechanism of the intervening C(H) genes on the active chromosome. This study showed for the first time that class-switching at the pre-B cell stage was not always confined to γ2b production.
