[what is the percentage of B cells in mouse spleen?]
Our spleen cell suspensions mostly fall in a generous "lymphoid gate" in
terms of forward and side scatter; in BALB/c, about 50% of these cells are
IgM+ (and also CD19+ and B220(6B2)+, for that matter).  This does vary
somewhat with strain, with BALB/c being higher than C57BL/6 (in our
experince).  Most of the other cells are T cells, with about 5% non-T,
non-B.  Of course this is for adult spleen (>2 mos)...  Good luck with
your analyses!
