Besides mature bone marrow plasma cells, the amyloidogenic clone also includes more undifferentiated bone marrow progenitors as well as mature B lymphocytes and plasma cells in peripheral blood [91–94]. Clonal plasma cell elements can also be found in the spleen and might serve as a source of amyloidogenic light chains [95]. Exposure to certain cytokines leads to in vitro differentiation of peripheral clonal elements into plasma cells that are very similar to their bone marrow counterparts [96].
