23344265 Data indicate that B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) is a suitable target for chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-expressing T cells, and adoptive transfer of anti-BCMA-CAR-expressing T cells is a promising new strategy for treating multiple myeloma.
23237506 The B cell maturation antigen (BCMA) is a tumor necrosis family receptor member that is predominantly expressed on terminally differentiated B cells and, upon binding to its ligands B cell activator of the TNF family and a proliferation inducing ligand.
23088438 Activation of B cells through BCMA regulates spinal cord injury-induced autoimmunity via a proliferation-inducing ligand (APRIL) and B-cell-activating factor (BAFF).
23071284 the effect of APRIL is mediated via BCMA, which does not activate the classical NF-kappaB pathway, whereas it induces a novel signaling pathway, which involves JNK2 phosphorylation, FOXO3A activation, and GADD45 transcription
22804669 Serum BCMA levels were higher among patients with progressive disease than those with responsive disease. Overall survival was shorter among patients whose serum BCMA levels were above the median.

18025170 Expression of B cell maturation Ag (BCMA) is also highly regulated and we demonstrate that BCMA expression is only acquired in MB cells and in a manner accompanied by loss of BAFF-R expression.
