Is this possible that memory B cells produce Igs just with stimulation of Th (CD40L) and cytokines (no directly stimulating antigen)? If yes, then do they produce Igs of remembered specificity?

As far as i know, they only produce membrane-bound Ig (BCR), while plasma cells secrete Igs. A memory B-Cell can only produce the one specific Ig that got it selected in the first place.
