Term Information [More information on B cell homeostasis]

Accession
GO:0001782
Name
B cell homeostasis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
B lymphocyte homeostasis, B-cell homeostasis, B-lymphocyte homeostasis
Definition
The process of regulating the proliferation and elimination of B cells such that the total number of B cells within a whole or part of an organism is stable over time in the absence of an outside stimulus. Source: GOC:add, ISBN:0781735149, PMID:12956429
Comment
Note that this term represents the return of B cell levels to stable numbers following an immune response as well as the proliferation and elimination of B cells required to maintain stable numbers in the absence of an outside stimulus.
