Term Information [More information on natural killer cell differentiation]

Accession
GO:0001779
Name
natural killer cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
NK cell differentiation, natural killer cell development
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of a natural killer cell. Source: GOC:add, ISBN:0781735149
Comment
Note that immunologists typically use the word 'development' to refer to cells of B or T cell lineages undergoing the process that GO describes as 'cell differentiation'.
