Term Information [More information on plasma cell differentiation]

Accession
GO:0002317
Name
plasma cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
plasma cell development
Definition
The process in which a B cell acquires the specialized features of a plasma cell. A plasma cell is a lymphocyte which develops from a B cell and produces high amounts of antibody. Source: GOC:jal
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'.
